Oxycodone (OXY) Drug Test
Oxycodone is used to relieve moderate to moderate-to-severe pain. It also is used to relieve postpartum, postoperative, and dental pain. Oxycodone comes as a liquid and tablet to take by mouth and can be habit-forming.
Oxycodone is a semi-synthetic opioid with a structural similarity to codeine. It produces potent euphoria, analgesic, and sedative effects, and has a dependence liability similar to morphine. Oxycodone is most often administered orally and is metabolized by demethylation to noroxycodone and oxymorphone followed by glucuronidation and excreted in urine. The window of detection for oxycodone in urine is expected to be similar to that of other opioids such as morphine.
