Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing to us.
Drugs like oxycodone can cause mild gastritis resulting in vomiting.
You can try over the counter Antacids to decrease the symptoms.
However if symptoms persist you need to consult your doctor again.
For headache and sinus pain it could be pain radiating from tooth if so it should respond to oxycodone.
If not settling consult your doctor.
Steam inhalation can help meanwhile.
Ensure plenty of liquids to keephim hydrated.
Wishing your son good health and speedy recovery.
