Oxycodone hydrochloride (HCL) is one of the opiod drugs doctors choose from when prescribing medicine for moderate to severe pain.
Oxycodone HCL is a small, white, round, odorless pill prescribed for pain management. It has a bitter taste compared to saline.
Oxycodone HCL comes in pill form and may be dispensed in the following dosages: 5mg, 7.5mg and 10mg.
Oxycodone may be fatal for people who have liver damage, head and spine injuries, asthma, and pulmonary disorders.
While it suppresses pain, Oxycodone HCL affects the body in other ways as well: it can depress the respiratory system, delay digestion, cause sweating, and cause the sphincter to spasm.
Oxycodone is highly addictive for the euphoric and relaxing feelings it causes in users. Abusers may take more than their prescribed amount or crush the pill to snort it. Addiction can lead to accidental death.
