Mechanism Of Action

Oxycodone and its active metabolites can bind by selective mu-opioid receptors, but together the kappa and delta opioid receptors in the central nervous system release the G-protein receptor.
- Stimulation of mu-opioid receptors inhibits N-type calcium channels, which inhibits painful responses.
- The exact mechanism of action of analgesics is unknown under conditions of inflammation or hyperalgesia, opioid receptors in the heart, lungs, liver, gastrointestinal tract, and reproductive system.
