Hello, Nanna! How are you?

No, they are both the same. It's all Oxycodone HCL. It stands for Hydrochloride and designates the specific chemical salt that the medication has been derived from, some prescriptions may list it, but it is not required that they do so.

The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Pain hurts Says:

Sometimes I wake up in middle of night in extreme pain I have oxycodone 10mg but the thought of waiting up to an hour for relief is overwhelming. When the pain is this extreme I take two..but it still takes a long time for relief. If I put it under tongue will it work faster. Help
