What Is Oxycodone?
Oxycodone is a prescription painkiller that belongs to a class of drugs known as opiate (narcotic) analgesics. Some other names for oxycodone may include the brand names of Oxycontin, Oxyfast, Oxaydo, Oxecta, Percocet, and Percodan. However, many commonly known brand names are a combination of oxycodone with other prescription drugs. Due to its high potential for abuse, oxycodone is a Schedule II controlled substance. This drug is frequently abused due to its ability to induce a euphoric high and feelings of relaxation. However, as illustrated in hit movies like SLC Punk!, an overdose of this drug can be fatal.
