Oxycontin 80mg Applications
Oxycontin 80mg This medication is used to relieve severe persistent pain (such as from cancer). Oxycontin 80mg belongs to a class of drugs known as opioid analgesics. It works in the brain to change how your body feels and responds to pain. The higher strengths of this drug (more than 40 milligrams per tablet) should only be used if you have regularly taken moderate to large amounts of an opioid pain reliever. These strengths can cause an overdose (even death) if taken by a person who has not used opioids regularly. Do not use the extended-release form of Oxycontin to relieve pain that is mild or that will go away in a few days. This medication is not for occasional (“as needed”) use.
