Mechanism of Action and Pharmacokinetics

The precise mechanism of the analgesic action of OxyContin is unknown. Oxycodone hydrochloride is a full opioid agonist and is relatively selective for the mu.

When considering the use of OxyContin in a patient taking a CNS depressant, assess the duration of use of the CNS depressant and the patient’s response, including the degree of tolerance that has developed to CNS depression. Additionally, evaluate the patient’s use of alcohol or illicit drugs that can cause CNS depression. If the decision to begin OxyContin therapy is made, start with 1/3 to 1/2 the usual dose of OxyContin, monitor patients for signs of sedation and respiratory depression and consider using a lower dose of the concomitant CNS depressant.

Following intravenous administration, the steady-state volume of distribution (Vss) for oxycodone was 2.6 L/kg.

Analgesic action: Oxycodone acts on opiate receptors, providing analgesia for moderate to moderay severe pain. Acute pain, rather than chronic pain.

Effects on lab test results • May increase amylase, lipase, and liver enzyme levels.

Pharmacodynamics Analgesic action: Oxycodone acts on opiate receptors, providing analgesia for moderate to moderay severe pain. Acute pain, rather than chronic pain, appears to be more responsive.

Contraindications and precautions Contraindicated in patients hypersensitive to drug. Use cautiously in elderly or debilitated patients and in those with head injury, increased intracranial pressure, seizures, asthma, COPD, prostatic hyperplasia, severe hepatic or renal disease, acute abdominal conditions, urethral stricture, hypothyroidism, Addison’s disease, or arrhythmias.

Equivalence with regard to morphine is 1:2. Its effect commences one hour after administration and lasts for 12 h in the controlled-release formulation. Plasma half-life is 3–5 h (half that of morphine) and stable plasma levels are reached within 24 h (2–7 days for morphine).
