No problems: Recommended dose is 5 to 15 mg orally every 4 to 6 hours for acute pain. However, you always want to work closely with your doctor regarding any medications.

Probably okay: Be sure to inform your doctor about this. Taking more Oxycodone than prescribed can be very dangerous. Unremitting pain is also a concern.
