OxyNEO is a controlled release form of oxycodone, a potent opioid used as a prescription painkiller. All opioids fundamentally work the same way.

When taken, OxyNEO bonds with certain receptors in nerve cells, changing the way we experience pain.

What is OxyNEO?

OxyNEO is also habit forming, addictive, and potentially deadly if someone takes too much (or mixes it with other drugs). Recreational OxyNEO abuse can lead to addiction very quickly, and its potency makes it easy to overdose on.

OxyNEO addiction can be treated, but withdrawal can be unpleasant and difficult. Seeking help for OxyNEO addiction is best done at a detox center.
