What Are the Different Types of OxyContin?
OxyContin is an extended-release tablet version of the generic opioid painkiller oxycodone. Oxycodone comes in both an extended-release and immediate-release form, and might go by the names Oxiyado, Roxicodone or OxyContin. There are several distinct differences between oxycodone and OxyContin. First of all, oxycodone is generally used for the treatment of acute and severe pain, such as pain following a surgical procedure or sport-related injury. OxyContin, on the other hand, is typically given to patients in the late stages of chronic disease who have been grappling with moderate or severe pain. If you find OxyContin pills stored in your loved one’s bedroom, bathroom or vehicle, there is a good chance this medication was not prescribed (unless they recently experienced a serious injury or are in the late stages of chronic disease).
