ToxTests | Oxycodone (OXY) Drug Test Dip Cards

Oxycodone is known as Oxycontin® and Roxicodone®. It is an ingredient of Percodan®, Percocet®, Roxicet® and Tylox®. Oxycodone is a semi-synthetic opiates derived from opium. Like other opiates, Oxycodone is characterized by its analegestic properties, and the tendency for users to form a physical dependency and develop tolerance with extended use. Oxycodone is usually administered in combination with non-opiate analegesics such as acetaminophen and salicylates for the relief of moderate to severe pain. Oxycodone is a central nervous system depressant that may cause drowsiness, dizziness, lethargy, weakness and confusion. Toxicity in an overdose of Oxycodone can lead to stupor, coma, muscle flaccidity, severe respiratory depression, hypotension, and cardiac arrest. Oxycodone is metabolized by N- and O-demethylation. One of the metabolites, oxymorphone, is a potent narcotic analgesic, while the other, noroxycodone, is relatively inactive. Between 33 to 61% of a single dose of Oxycodone is excreted in a 24 hour urine collection and consists of 13-19% free Oxycodone, 7-29% glucuronide conjugated Oxycodone, 13-14% glucuronide conjugated oxymorphone and an unknown amount of noroxycodone. The detection time window of Oxycodone is 1-3 days following use.
