Central Nervous System
The precise mechanism of the analgesic action is unknown. However, specific CNS opioid receptors for endogenous compounds with opioid-like activity
Gastrointestinal Tract And Other Smooth Muscle
have been identified throughout the brain and spinal cord and play a role in the analgesic effects of this drug. Oxycodone produces respiratory depression by direct action on brain stem respiratory centers. The respiratory depression involves both a reduction in the responsiveness of the brain stem respiratory centers to increases in carbon dioxide tension and to electrical stimulation.
Oxycodone causes a reduction in motility associat with an increase in smooth muscle and Tone in the antrum. Digestion of food in the small intestine is delayed and propulsive contractions are decreased. Propulsive peristaltic waves in the colon are decreased while tone may be increased to the point and resulting in constipation. Other opioid-induced effects may include a reduction in gastric, biliary and pancreatic secretions. Spasm of sphincter of Oddi and transient elevations in serum amylase. Drugs that cause similar effects to oxycodone include: opium, codeine, heroin, methadone, hydrocodone, fentanyl, and morphine.
Oxycodone may produce release of histamine with and without associated peripheral vasodilation. Manifestations of histamine release and peripheral vasodilation may include pruritus, flushing, red eyes, sweating, and orthostatic hypotension.
