Analgesic studies of codeine and oxycodone in patients with cancer. II. Comparisons of intramuscular oxycodone with intramuscular morphine and codeine.

The relative analgesic potency of single graded intramuscular doses of oxycodone and morphine was evaluated in a double-blind study in patients with chronic pain due to cancer. When both intensity and duration of analgesia are considered (total analgesic effect), oxycodone was 2/3 to 3/4 as potent as morphine, while in terms of peak analgesia, it was 8/10 to equipotent. In doses producing equivalent peak effect, oxycodone had a shorter duration of action than morphine. Intramuscular oxycodone was also compared to intramuscular codeine in a similar patient group. In terms of total analgesic effect, oxycodone was 10 times as potent as codeine, while in terms of peak analgesia it was 12 times as potent. These relative potency relationships of oxycodone, taken in conjunction with the oral/parenteral potency ratios of codeine and oxycodone established in the previous paper and several previous relative potency assays involving morphine, oxymorphone and codeine, demonstrate a highly consistent pattern of analgesic structure-activity relationships encompassing morphine, oxymorphone, codeine and oxycodone. The results of these studies do not appear to support the hypothesis that, in man, the analgesic activity of codeine is due to its O-demethylation to morphine.

However, in recent years, it has been found that up to 70% of post-craniotomy patients have moderate to severe pain and codeine did not provide adequate analgesic relief. Many studies have compared codeine to other drugs such as PCA morphine, fentanyl and tramadol, and patients on these stronger opioids generally had lower pain scores and better satisfaction.

Example: "Heart attack" AND "Los Angeles".

Hence, the hypothesis is that oxycodone is more effective than codeine in providing pain relief in post-craniotomy patients. Inclusion Criteria: Exclusion Criteria:

Codeine has been the mainstay of analgesia for patients after craniotomy for many years. Traditionally, craniotomies were not thought to be very painful procedures, hence the use of codeine, a moderay potent opioid (when compared to morphine).

No study has been conducted to determine the efficacy of analgesia of oral oxycodone to oral codeine.

The efficacy of codeine is dependent on its demethylation to morphine. This extent of demethylation has wide inter-individual variability, making codeine's efficacy as a analgesic variable. Oxycodone is a semi-synthetic opioid and is a weak agonist on mu opioid receptors.

Mother39s postpartum oxycodone use No safer for breastfed infants

Mother39s postpartum oxycodone use No safer for breastfed infants

To estimate the risks to babies breastfed by mothers taking either codeine or oxycodone, Dr. Gideon Koren of The Hospital for Sick Children.

Doctors have been prescribing codeine for postpartum pain management for many years, and, until recently, it was considered safe to breastfeed while taking the opioid. But the death of an infant exposed to codeine through breast milk has many health care providers questioning the safety of the drug when used by breastfeeding mothers. Because of the potential risks, some doctors have begun the practice of prescribing oxycodone as an alternative to codeine; however, a new study soon to be published in The Journal of Pediatrics finds that oxycodone is no safer for breastfed infants than codeine.

The mothers were asked to report their experiences with central nervous system (CNS) depression, as well as those of their infants, during the time they were taking one of the drugs and breastfeeding.
