    Oral
    Oxycodone + Naloxone

    Includes a reversal agent, to reduce adverse effects (particularly constipation)
    • Mechanism of Action
    • Oxcodone is an opioid, which acts on opioid receptors (δ, κ and µ) and nociceptin orphanin FQ (NOF) receptors on neuronal cell membranes within the thalamus, diencephalon, midbrain and medulla, resulting in reduced neurotransmitter release.Naloxone is a competitive antagonist of μ, κ, and δ opioid receptors, reversing the action of exogenous opioids.
