Roxycodone is a common misspelling of Roxicodone (oxycodone).
What is Roxicodone (Roxycodone)?
Roxicodone (Roxycodone) is a narcotic pain reliever. It works by dulling the pain perception center in the brain. It may also affect other body systems (eg, respiratory and circulatory systems) at higher doses.
Roxicodone (Roxycodone) is used to treat moderate to severe pain. It may be used before surgery to sedate the patient and reduce fear. Roxicodone (Roxycodone) is not for treating pain just after a surgery unless you were already taking Roxicodone (Roxycodone) before the surgery. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.
The usual adult dose of Roxicodone (Roxycodone) is 10 to 30 mg every 4 hours as needed for pain. The dose must be individually adjusted according to severity of pain, patient response and patient size. More severe pain may require 30 mg or more every 4 hours. If the pain increases in severity, analgesia is not adequate or tolerance occurs, a gradual increase in Roxicodone (Roxycodone) dosage may be required.
