Roxicodone (oxycodone): This is used for acute pain. It is a short acting medication and should be used for short periods of time. In chronic pain it may be used fornexacerbations of pain above your regular pain.

Some pain: Ideally, it should be used for short-term treatment of acute, non-cancer pain. Or for chronic treatment of cancer-related pain. It is highly addictive, and best avoided for long-term use.
