Oxycodone is prescribed for moderate to severe pain when continuous, around-the-clock relief is needed for an extended period of time.
Oxycodone is only used for around-the-clock treatment of moderate or severe pain. It should not be used to treat occasional pain. If you have taken a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) (such as phenelzine) within the past 14 days, TELL YOUR DOCTOR BEFORE YOU BEGIN to take Oxycodone. ADDITIONAL MONITORING OF YOUR DOSE OR CONDITION may be needed if you take barbiturates (such as phenobarbital), cimetidine, mixed agonist/antagonist pain medicines (such as pentazocine), naltrexone, phenothiazines (such as chlorpromazine), or rifampin. DO NOT START OR STOP any medicine without doctor or pharmacist approval. Inform your doctor of any other medical conditions including liver or kidney problems; gallbladder, pancreas, stomach or bowel problems (such as inflammation); recent surgery; allergies; pregnancy; or breast-feeding. TELL YOUR DOCTOR IF YOU HAVE a history of lung or breathing problems (such as asthma, emphysema, bronchitis), adrenal gland problems (such as Addison disease), heart problems, low blood pressure, dehydration, low blood volume, certain blood problems (such as porphyria), prostate problems, bladder blockage, underactive thyroid, or seizures. Inform your doctor if you have a history of curvature of the spine, severe drowsiness, head injury, growths in the brain, or increased pressure in the brain. INFORM YOUR DOCTOR if you have a personal or family history of mental or mood problems, regular alcohol use, alcohol or other substance abuse, or suicidal thoughts or actions. Tell your doctor if you have symptoms of alcohol withdrawal, are in poor health, or will be having surgery. DO NOT TAKE OXYCODONE if you are having an asthma attack. USE OF OXYCODONE HCL 80mg IS NOT RECOMMENDED if you have severe asthma, severe lung or breathing problems (such as slow or difficult breathing, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), certain heart problems (such as cor pulmonale), alcohol intoxication, delirium caused by alcohol withdrawal, severe drowsiness, current brain injury, growths in the brain, or increased pressure in the brain. Contact your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions or concerns about taking Oxycodone.
Oxycodone may be taken on an empty stomach or with food. Do not break, crush, or chew before swallowing. Doing so may cause you to absorb too much of Oxycodone too quickly. This could cause serious side effects including severe trouble breathing, severe drowsiness, coma, or death. STORE OXYCODONE at room temperature, at 77 degrees F (25 degrees C), away from heat and light. Brief storage between 59 and 86 degrees F (15 and 30 degrees C) is permitted. TAKE OXYCODONE on a regular schedule to help control the pain more effectively. IF YOU MISS A DOSE OF OXYCODONE and you are using it regularly, take it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not take 2 doses at once. If you miss more than 2 doses in a row, contact your doctor before taking Oxycodone again.

* Sleep aids such as triazolam, zaleplon, and zolpidem
* Sleep-inducing antihistamines such as diphenhydramine and promethazine.
* Tranquilizers such as alprazolam, chlordiazepoxide, diazepam, and lorazepam
* Alcoholic beverages
If you are already taking such drugs, your starting dose of OxyContin will be reduced by at least half.
