Oxycodone APAP Drug Information
If you are dealing with pain that is moderate to moderately severe in nature, you may benefit from a combination drug called oxycodone/APAP (Endocet®, Magnacet™, Percocet®, Roxicet™, Tylox®). This prescription medicine is typically taken every six hours as needed, though your particular dosage will be based on how you respond to it, other medications you are taking, and other factors.
The medication comes in several forms, including capsules, tablets, and an oral solution (liquid). In the United States, all oxycodone/APAP products are narcotics and are classified as Schedule II controlled substances, which means that special laws and regulations control their sale and use.
Before starting treatment with oxycodone/APAP, the drug's safety information should be reviewed so that you are aware of possible side effects (such as nausea, constipation, and itching) and know the warning signs of an allergic reaction or other serious problem that requires prompt medical attention.
