According to the manufacture, Oxycodone is extensively metabolized and eliminated primarily in the urine as both conjugated and unconjugated metabolites. The apparent elimination half-life of oxycodone following the administration of OxyContin is 4.5 hours compared to 3.2 hours for immediate-release oxycodone. So Oxycontin will last approx. 9 hours (remember that's the appoximate amount of time, It could stay in your system longer depending on the person. Hope this helps. Happy New Years!
