Took double the dose of OXYCODONE. Effect?

Resolved Question:

I take 2 15mg mscontin in the morning & 2 at night. I keep my meds in a safe downstairs. When I woke up, I took my two then put the other 2 in my pocket to bring upstairs. Then, when I came upstairs got into my pocket & took those 2 forgetting I had already taken 2. Is this going to kill me? I take 70 mg's of oxycodone on top of that each day (which I have not taken any of yet). Help?

Thank you for your query at
I understand your concern.
Do not worry. It won't kill you. Just be careful about the following symptoms :
: Slow heart rate, shallow breathing, breathing difficulties
: Excessive drowsiness, weakness in the limbs,
: Vomiting
You should skip the night dose, and also skip oxycodone for today. Continue the next dose tomorrow as scheduled. Such kind of mistakes may happen and you have not consumed any dangerously high level to cause severe symptoms.
Please revert back to me if you feel any of the symptoms mentioned above,
