Oxycodone is the powerful primary ingredient in many painkillers prescribed to people suffering from moderate to severe pain. These pills come in various shapes, sizes and colors depending on the dose and brand. Oxycodone is commonly combined with acetaminophen under the name brand Percocet and is generally trademarked under the name OxyContin.
When abused, the drug causes a very quick high in the user. People who abuse Oxycodone often crush or melt down the tablets to be smoked or injected. Oxycodone, like all opioids, results in severe addiction potential due to the physical dependence that results from the opioid receptor activation in the brain.
Unfortunately oxycodone, commonly referred to as oxy, is heavily abused and sold on the street and is one of the main contributors to the current trending opioid addiction in the United States.
Oxycodone is an opioid partial agonist, meaning it produces effects such as euphoria or respiratory depression, however, these effects are weaker than those of full drugs such as heroin and methadone.
The FDA has approved the following buprenorphine products: Bunavail (buprenorphine and naloxone) buccal film Suboxone (buprenorphine and naloxone) film Zubsolv (buprenorphine and naloxone) sublingual tablets Buprenorphine-containing transmucosal products for opioid dependence Methadone is an opioid that works by changing how the brain and nervous system respond to pain.
