Oxycodone and or its major metabolites may be tested for in blood or urine to monitor for abuse, confirm a diagnosis of poisoning or assist in a medicolegal death investigation. Many commercial opiate screening tests cross-react with oxycodone and its metabolites, but chromatographic techniques can easily distinguish oxycodone from other opiates. Oxycodone will typically be present in your urine for around 72 hours after you take it, although it could be longer as there is no set amount of time that is stays in your system.

Oxycodone, OxyContin and other brand names is an opioid analgesic medication synthesized from opium-derived thebaine. It was developed in 1916 in Germany, as one of several new semi-synthetic opioids in an attempt to improve on the existing opioids: Morphine, diacetylmorphine, heroin, and codeine.

Oxycodone oral medications are generally prescribed for the relief of moderate to severe pain. Currently it is formulated as single ingredient products or compounded products. Some common examples of compounding are oxycodone with acetaminophen/paracetamol or NSAIDs such as ibuprofen. The formulations are available as generics but are also made under various brand names. OxyContin is Purdue Pharma's brand for time-release oral oxycodone. The manufacturing rights to time-released generic oxycodone are under dispute.

Oxycodone is effective for managing moderate to moderately severe acute or chronic pain. It has been found to improve quality of life for those with many types of pain. In 2001, the European Association for Palliative Care recommended that oral oxycodone should be a second-line alternative to oral morphine for cancer pain. There is no evidence that any opioids are superior to morphine in relieving the pain of cancer and no controlled trials have shown oxycodone to be superior to morphine.

There is a high risk of experiencing severe withdrawal symptoms if a patient discontinues oxycodone abruptly. Therefore therapy should be gradually discontinued rather than abruptly discontinued. People who use oxycodone in a hazardous or harmful fashion are at even higher risk of severe withdrawal symptoms as they tend to use higher than prescribed doses. The symptoms of oxycodone withdrawal are the same as for other opiate based painkillers and may include 'anxiety, nausea, insomnia, muscle pain, muscle weakness, fevers, and other flu like symptoms.' Withdrawal symptoms have also been reported in newborns whose mothers had been either injecting or orally taking oxycodone during pregnancy.

Oxycodone, a thebaine based opiod, clears quickly from the body unless it is taken in large doses or in the extended release form. Most 10 panel cards will not detect oxycodone if doses are small. However, they now have a separate test for oxy and fentanyl. These tests can show positive up to 4 days.
