i looked up my pills and found 2 names for the identical pill one was oxicodone and one was oxicodone hydrochloride what is the difference?

Oxycodone hydrochloride is a salt. Usually the most of medication comes in different salts like hydrochloride, citrate, propionate and others. This helps to improve absorption and avoid break down of the medication by hydrochloric acid in the stomach. You should not worry that the medication you take comes in hydrochloric salt form. I hope my answer was helpful
