Oxycodone is a semi-synthetic narcotic which means that part of it is derived naturally from the poppy plant while other parts are man-made in a laboratory. Oxycodone is popular for its analgesic properties which make it a drug of choice for individuals among the narcotic abusing population. Oxycodone is marketed alone as OxyContin® and comes in 10, 20, 40 and 80 mg controlled-release tablets. It is also available in other immediate-release capsules like 5 mg OxyIR®. It is also marketed in combination products with aspirin such as Percodan® or acetaminophen such as Roxicet®. Oxycodone products are in Schedule II of the federal Controlled Substances Act of 1970. They are recognized to be addictive and are illegal unless being used medicinally under a doctor’s prescription.
