Is Oxeltra the same as oxycodone?

This medicine contains oxycodone which is an opioid medicine. Repeated use of opioid painkillers can result in the drug being less effective (you become accustomed to it, known as tolerance). Repeated use of Oxeltra tablets may lead to dependence, abuse, and addiction, which may result in life-threatening overdose.

How to take Oxeltra tablets

Always take these tablets exactly as your doctor has told you. The label on your medicine will tell you how many tablets to take and how often.

Adults (over 18 years of age) The usual starting dose is one 10 mg tablet every 12 hours. However, your doctor will prescribe the dose required to treat your pain. If you find that you are still in pain whilst taking these tablets, discuss this with your doctor. Do not exceed the dose recommended by your doctor. You should check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure. Swallow your tablets whole with water. Do not crush, dissolve or chew them.
