Hello,I am Dr. Aren and I will help with your query.Endone/Oxycodone is a narcotic analgesic which should be used carefully as per your doctor's recommendations.The usual post operative dosage is one tablet every 6-8 hourly orally.Any increase in dosage can create problems as there are quite a few side effects with such drugs including respiratory depression,sedation,dizziness,nausea,hypotension.If you are experiencing pain despite taking the drugs ,it would be prudent to discuss this with the doctor/surgeon who is taking care of you.He may adjust the dosage or add other drugs to ensure that you are kept pain free.Taking a overdose of such medicines is potentially dangerous and can be extremely harmful.
