oxycodone effective duration

After that time frame following administration, the medication would no longer be at its peak so to speak (was not trying to rhyme there lol). Perhaps this is why they often recommend taking 1 tablet every 4-6 hours, since this is when more than half of the dose would've already passed through your body... ...
