oxycodone (roxicodone) is a fast acting opiate pain killer about half way up the scale in strength. It seems to effect the MU receptors causing a more euphoric high especially in endorphin defecient patients. It gives a sense of extra energy which isn't really good if you really are taking it for acute pain. It should only be used for acute pain (2 weeks) as it can be very addictive. Hope that helps even though it is a very brief example... Dave
