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.
