Hello,

Oxycodone is found in fast-acting opiates such as Percocet(which also contains tylenol), Roxicodone, and is also in Oxycontin. The only difference between oxycodone and Oxycontin is, Oxycontin is time-released. It distributes its oxycodone slowly over a period of 12 hours, as long as the pill is not cut up or smashed. The 'contin' in 'Oxycontin' stands for continuous.

Take care
