Oxycodone abuse which includes other substances like alcohol can cause a heart attack. To avoid this don’t take oxycodone is anyother way than prescribed and don’t drink alcohol while on the drug.

Because oxycodone is a sedative and opioid it can cause respiratory depression. Im sure if someone had prior health issues like asthma or something oxy could increase heart attack likeliness.
