In addition to reducing pain, Oxycodone may affect the body in the following ways: Slowed heart rate and breathing Low blood pressure Dizziness Nausea The increased pressure of fluid in the brain and spine Because the drug can also cause sensations of pleasure or euphoria, oxycodone is also highly addictive.
