Not aware of any: There are cough syrups that contain Codeine which is a narcotic. At least historically there is a cough syrup that contained Dilaudid which is an even more powerful narcotic, but I am not sure if that is still available on the market. I have never heard of any cough syrup that contains oxycodone.

No but...: Most narcotic cough syrups contain Codeine or hydrocodone. However, most narcotics including oxycodone do contain anti-tussive (cough suppressant) qualities and would work to suppress a cough. They are not used routinely because of dea scheduling.

No: Most prescription cough meds use codeine not oxycodone as codeine can help decrease coughs
