Taking 10 mg of oxycodone at once can cause side effects as it is released immediately.
If this is not relieving your pain then you can take either controlled release of oxycodone.It can be taken as10 mg, 20 mg ,or 40 mg dosage.
Another option is of taking combination of oxycodone with other pain killer medications.
