Generic Name: OXYCODONE/ASPIRIN - ORAL Pronounced: (ox-ee-KOH-doan/AS-pir-in) Oxycodone-Aspirin Oral Uses
This medication is used to relieve moderate to moderately
severe pain. It contains 2 pain relievers: oxycodone, which is a narcotic, and
aspirin. Oxycodone is a narcotic pain reliever (opiate-type) that acts on
certain parts of the brain to relieve pain. Aspirin is known as a salicylate
and a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It works by blocking a
certain natural substance in your body to reduce pain and swelling, therefore
making you more comfortable and more able to function normally.

Like most of you, I take aspirin daily, 162.5mg (it used to be 325 until my stomach rebelled). Most cardiologists recommend aspirin for heart disease sufferers.
Aspirin works by interfering with the generation of thromboxane A2 (TXA2) which is needed for platelet aggregation (clotting). The COX-1 enzyme acts on arachidonic acid (AA) to produce endoperoxides that in turn produce TXA2. Aspirin interferes with the generation of TXA2 by irreversably acetylating the platelet COX-1 enzyme thereby blocking its access to AA. Because platelets are anucleate , they cannot generate additional COX-1. In the absence of TXA2, platelet aggregation does not occur. Got all that?! Most practitioners prescribe anywhere from 81mg to 325mg for heart patients. Studies such as CURE suggest 81mg is optimal. The ISIS-2 study puts the dose at 162mg (for recent heart attack sufferers) and, frankly, since aspirin is so cheap, many simply make the leap to "more must be better." Ahh, but there are downsi...
At first, you celebrated when your girlfriend got the amazing Internet job in Seattle; but that was before you got a fellowship to N.Y.U. Now, six months later, the two of you are experts at the ins and outs of cybersex, you've racked up enough frequent-flier miles to circle the globe, and your phone bills are through the roof. Welcome to the long-distance relationship, 21st century style. If this scenario sounds familiar, you're in good company. There are some very high-profile LDRs (long-distance relationships) out there. Just ask Bush's Britain-bound Gavin Rossdale how much he misses his L.A. woman, Gwen Stefani of No Doubt. Or Yalie Claire Danes, who's literally on the other side of the planet from her sweetie, Australian rocker Ben Lee. Even those of us who aren't dating rock stars know that our turbocharged ambitions and fast-paced careers are taking us, and our relationships, across the country and all over the world. Is an LDR For You? The most important fac...
