A German firm first synthesized the oxycodone from thebine in the early years of twentieth century. Oxycondone’s chemical name is derived from codeine. It was hoped that a thebine-derived drug would retain the analgesic effects of morphine and heroin with less dependence. To some extent this was achieved, as oxycodone does not have the same immediate effect as heroin or morphine nor does it last as long. The first clinical use of this drug was documented in 1917. This is a drug available only with the prescription. This works as time release pain killer. This is a very good drug widely used for treatment of severe pain disorders.
