how much oxycodone is "too much"?

Pain relief: Oxycodone is usually prescribed every four to six hours for pain treatment. Factors that come into play when determining dose are are tolerance as well as their genetics which determine if they are fast or slow metabolizers which cause them to have a larger dosage requirment. "too much" for a patient is the amount that causes intolerable side effects or exceeds their doctors comfort level.

Oxycodone: Taking more than what is prescribed is too much. Always follow the prescribing physician's directions - for all medications.

Liquid vs Pill: Both are oxycodone. Oxyfast is simply a liquid version. Oxyfast is 20 mg/ml. Thus 1.5 ml is equal to 30 mg.
