Accidents, injuries, and even some illnesses can produce agonizing pain. When this happens, people turn to their doctors to ask what to do about the pain. If this happened to you, and you were prescribed OxyCodone, you are not alone. Research shows that over 7 million prescriptions are written each year for OxyCodone. Interestingly, since OxyCodone not only relieves pain, but produces a euphoric high, scores of people have become addicted.
If you are reading this material, you may be wondering how this happened in the first place. All you meant to do was ease the pain.

Incredibly, this is a common story, so you are not alone.
