About oxycodone

Oxycodone is a full opioid agonist with affinity for mu (micro) and kappa (k) receptors. Its opioid agonist actions are similar to those of other opioid analgesics, primarily affecting the central nervous system and smooth muscle. It is used, in both prolonged-release and immediate-release formulations, across a broad spectrum of moderate to severe cancer and severe non-cancer related pain types such as somatic (e.g. osteoarthritis), neuropathic (e.g. diabetic neuropathy) and visceral (e.g. pancreatitis) pain. As with all pure opioid agonists, there is no ceiling effect to the analgesia seen with oxycodone.
