How long does it take for oxycodone to work?

Fast-acting oxycodone (capsules and liquid) take 30 to 60 minutes to work, but these wear off after 4 to 6 hours. Slow-acting oxycodone (tablets) can take 1 to 2 days to work fully, but the pain relief will last longer.

This depends on the type of oxycodone you take – fast acting or slow acting.

Fast-acting oxycodone (capsules and liquid) take 30 to 60 minutes to work, but these wear off after 4 to 6 hours.

Slow-acting oxycodone (tablets) can take 1 to 2 days to work fully, but the pain relief will last longer.

An oxycodone injection into a vein gives the quickest pain relief and works almost straight away.
