There is no single answer to this question, as it would depend upon many factors, including the individual tolerance to opiates. In addition, if the oxycodone is in a combination pill with acetaminophen, the toxic dose of acetaminophen may be reached before the toxic dose of oxycodone.
Generally speaking, if someone has taken a large dose of oxycodone, then it would be better for that person to be seen.
