In brief: Usual dose=5-10 mg

Endone (oxycodone, percocet.
.) is a strong narcotic pain killer. The usual dose is 5-10 mg every 4-6 hours as needed. Since it is a narcotic: long term use needs to be monitored as it is 'habit forming'. You need to be seen if any neurological symptoms: leg weakness, loss of bladder/bowel control, or bladder retention (signs of spinal stenosis/cauda equina syndrome). Hope you are better soon!

In brief: No answer

There is no perfect answer. Weight plays into the answer, but prior drug exposure, sensitivity, tolerance etc all play a part as well.
