Oxycodone is a strong, SHORT-acting medication.
It's addicting and causes tolerance rather easily. This means you need a higher dose when your body "gets used to it".
It's an opioid which, as you know, is on the government's hit list so docs will try to use everything else first.
Chronic pain Best treated is to have one long acting with a drug in the same category to use as a rescue drug.
I hope this helps.
