Oxycodone ER Use in Children

Oxycodone ER is not approved for children. However, this does not mean that it cannot be used in children. Be sure to discuss the benefits and risks of using oxycodone ER in children with your child's healthcare provider. Keep in mind that the available strengths of oxycodone ER may be too high for children and that the tablets cannot be broken, crushed, chewed, or dissolved.

Off-Label Uses for Oxycodone ER

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend oxycodone ER for something other than the uses discussed previously in this article (this would be known as an "off-label" use). Taking oxycodone ER three times daily (instead of the officially recommended twice-daily dosage) is a common off-label use of the drug.
