Can you crush oxycodone acetaminophen?
If you are taking the oxycodone extended-release tablets, swallow them whole; do not chew, break, divide, crush, or dissolve them. If you swallow broken, chewed, crushed, or dissolved extended-release tablets, you may receive too much oxycodone at once instead of slowly over 12 hours.
Can RP 10 325 Cause an Overdose?
Yes, all opioid drugs, from heroin to RP 10 325, can lead to overdose if a person takes too much. While the exact doses of each individual opioid may be different, abusing these drugs puts a person at risk of overdose. The main symptom of opioid overdose, including overdose from RP 10 325, is slowed or stopped breathing. The opioid receptors in the brain control pain sensations, link to the reward centers, and manage breathing rates. While taking a large dose of painkillers may make a person feel relaxed, it may suppress breathing so much that the body is starved of oxygen.
Does oxycodone make you pee?
For people with urination problems: If you have trouble urinating due to certain problems, talk with your doctor about whether this drug is safe for you. Oxycodone can make it even harder for you to urinate, or make you unable to urinate. Your doctor may prescribe a lower dosage of this drug.
Can RP 10 325 Cause Withdrawal?
Yes, all opioid drugs can cause withdrawal symptoms. At high enough doses, even people who take these medicines as prescribed may experience withdrawal symptoms, so doctors typically work with their patients to safely taper off the prescription when it is time to stop taking pain medication or when the individual wants to switch to a different analgesic. However, people who struggle with RP 10 325 addiction typically do not have the direct oversight of their prescribing physician, so if they attempt to stop taking RP 10 325 suddenly or they run out of the drug, they are more likely to experience uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms.

Some products that may interact with this drug include certain pain medications (mixed opioid agonist/antagonists such as pentazocine, nalbuphine, butorphanol), naltrexone. The risk of serious side effects (such as slow/shallow breathing, severe drowsiness/dizziness) may be increased if this medication is taken with other products that may also cause drowsiness or breathing problems. Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking other products such as other opioid pain or cough relievers (such as codeine, hydrocodone), alcohol, marijuana (cannabis), drugs for sleep or anxiety (such as alprazolam, lorazepam, zolpidem), muscle relaxants (such as carisoprodol, cyclobenzaprine), or antihistamines (such as cetirizine)
What are the effects of RP 10 325 Abuse?
RP 10 325 abuse can lead to dependence and addiction. As one struggles with an opioid addiction, compulsive misuse of the drugs can cause:
- Physical damage to your body such as liver failure from too much acetaminophen.
