Who would benefit from testing oxycodone?

Testing for oxycodone is crucial for patients under pain management treatment to ensure proper dosing and avoid misuse. It’s also important for drug rehabilitation programs, in occupational drug testing where safety is a concern, and in forensic contexts, such as DUI cases or accidental overdose investigations.

Oxycodone’s detection window varies depending on the testing method. In urine, it’s typically detectable for 3-4 days after the last use.
