Oxycodone Injury Lawyers

The drug can be formulated as a single ingredient medication or compounded with other drugs such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen. Its time-released formulation is marketed under the brand name OxyContin®.
Due to oxycodone’s widespread availability, lethal overdoses can occur even when the drug is used as prescribed.

Oxycodone Risks and Symptoms
Opioid painkillers like oxycodone can often be prescribed for long-term pain management, which may lead to psychological dependence and an increased tolerance for the drug’s effects—leading to increased dosages that put patients at risk of an overdose.
Symptoms of an oxycodone overdose may include:
- breathing problems,
- extreme sleepiness,
- and small pupils.
Oxycodone is a very potent drug, and even when used as prescribed and directed, dosages may be potentially dangerous.
