"Oxycodone is a central nervous system depressant. Oxycodone's action appears to work through stimulating the opioid receptors found in the central nervous system that activate responses ranging from analgesia to respiratory depression to euphoria. People who take the drug repeatedly can develop a tolerance or resistance to the drug's effects. Thus, a cancer patient can take a dose of oxycodone on a regular basis that would be fatal in a person never exposed to oxycodone or another opioid. Most individuals who abuse oxycodone seek to gain the euphoric effects, mitigate pain, and avoid withdrawal symptoms associated with oxycodone or heroin abstinence.

Oxycodone has a high abuse potential and is prescribed for moderate to high pain relief associated with injuries, bursitis, dislocation, fractures, neuralgia, arthritis, and lower back and cancer pain. It is also used postoperatively and for pain relief after childbirth. OxyContin, Percocet, Percodan, and Tylox are trade name oxycodone products.

OxyContin is designed to be swallowed whole; however, abusers ingest the drug in a variety of ways. OxyContin abusers often chew the tablets or crush the tablets and snort the powder. Because oxycodone is water soluble, crushed tablets can be dissolved in water and the solution injected. The latter two methods lead to the rapid release and absorption of oxycodone."


Dont do drugs man, just buy an m3.

I dont think oxycodone is stronger than vicadin, however i have little knowledge of that topic

Hey... it's 3:45am.. time for a study break I think.

Pain Killer? Acetaminophen is Tylenol. Oxycodone is a pain killing narcotic affecting the central nervous system (highly addictive). The combination of the two is what makes up Percocet's (also known as 'perks'.) This is what Wikipedia was trying to say.

Percocets: The Acetaminophen is used to relieve pain, and reduce fever. Oxycodone is used for it's claming effect, (it's a sedative) as it will help you relax and basically be happy. For some, it helps them think clearer.

Oxycodone on its own: Oxycodone can also be purchased on its own (usually sold under the brand name Tylox in Canada), and as mentioned is a narcotic. As such, it is a controlled substance. It comes in small white or yellowish circular pills stamped with OC them. Because it is a central nervous system depressant, effects can range from feeling calm, reducing physical (and for some, emotional) pain without making you fall asleep or lose consciousness, and great feelings of happiness.

Abuse: As mentioned in Propone's post, the pill itself is time released, some abusers would rather speed up the absorption into the blood stream. Crushing the tablets and snorting, is one way of doing this. Another way is dissolving the pills in water (should be bacterio-static for sanization reasons, but most people really don't care), then injected into a vein. Crushing it and dissolving into a glass of water then drinking will help speed up the effects as well. If ingested, it should be taken with food to help aleviate any gastrointestinal pains.

Resistance & addiction: The user can, and will, develop a resistance to this drug and it will become less effective. This is when things can become messy, as the user may begin taking more of the drug to increase the effect. Sometimes to the point where it can become life-threatening. Think of it like the the mother (Sara Goldfarb) in Requiem for a Dream taking those weight-loss drugs. Your body builds up a tolerance for it, and you begin popping more and more.

Side-effects: Eventually you can damage your receptors and perminantly alter how your nervous system interprets signals from the outside world. There are many side-effects to Oxycodone, but most are not life threatening... things like constipation, sweating, and itching. More serious side effects come with abuse, or long term use, this includes possible unconsciousness, seizures, and difficulty breathing.

Compared to Vicodin: It is interesting that you ask if it is stronger than Vicodin. As vicodin is very similar to the above mentioned Percocet. Vicodin also contains tylenol (Acetaminophen), but instead of combining with Oxycodone, it is combined with the drug Hydrocodone. (a relative of Codine). Side effects are quite similar, as Hydrocodone is also a central nervous system depressant. The difference is Vicodin will make you much more drowsy, and provide less of an 'upper' feel. It is more of a sedative.

Hope this helps. Back to homework now...
