Roxicodone is used to relieve pain either mild or severe pain. Roxicodone works in the brain by changing how a person responds to pain. Roxicodone inhibits and controls a section of the central nervous system to block the sensation of pain. Roxicodone may take some time to react usually 12-24 hours after ingestion. It involves the stimulation of opioid receptors in the brain. It does not eliminate the pain sensation but decreases the discomfort caused by increasing the pain tolerance.
Roxicodone dosage should be adjusted individually according to the patient's degree of pain, his/her response time and body size. For patients experiencing acute pain, their dosage should be administered around the clock to prevent the pain from recurring rather than responding to the pain.
- Dosing range should start with 5-15 mg of Roxicodone for patients who have never received any opioid analgesics.
- It should be administered after every 4-6 hours to control acute pain at a low dosage adequate to cause analgesia.
- The patient should not start, stop or change the dosage before being advised by the doctor.
