How is RoxyBond formulated to be abuse deterrent?

Answers (1)

Official Answer by Drugs.com 5 Jul 2017

RoxyBond (oxycodone hydrochloride) is an oral tablet formulated as an immediate-release, abuse-deterrent, narcotic analgesic to manage severe pain. To deter abuse, RoxyBond tablets are formulated with specialized technology giving them increased resistance to cutting, crushing, grinding, or breaking. When immersed in liquid, a substance high in viscosity forms making it difficult to inject the drug intravenously. Despite this deterrent formulation, abuse by intranasal, oral, and intravenous routes are still possible.
