Oxycodone Overdose

If someone has happened to overdose and is suffering from serious symptoms such as breathing issues or passing out, give them naloxone if present, then call poison control.

Symptoms of overdose include:

  • slow/shallow breathing
  • slow heartbeat rate

Check with your doctor if you should have naloxone available in case of opioid overdose. It is always recommended to teach your household members the symptoms of opioid overdose and how to treat it.

Missed Dose

If you happen to miss a dose, you can take it as soon as you remember. However, if it is near the time of your next dose, do not double your dose and continue your usual dosing schedule. You must not double your dose to catch up.
