What is aspirin and oxycodone?

Aspirin and oxycodone is a combination tablet used for relief of moderate to moderately severe pain in adults. Aspirin and oxycodone is available under the brand names Percodan and Endodan, both available by prescription only. Aspirin is a member of the salicylate group of drugs while oxycodone is a narcotic pain reliever. Together, they work to reduce both pain and inflammation. Aspirin and oxycodone is usually taken every six hours, although dosing schedules may change based on a doctor's recommendation. Oxycodone could become habit-forming, so it must be used exactly as prescribed.
