What is the difference in oxycontin and oxycodone?
19 Jul 2011
OxyContin is oxycodone so most tests will just show the presence of oxycodone and/or the metabolites. The only way they can tell the difference is if they test quantitative measures in which the OxyContin is generally a higher dose than oxycodones so will show more oxycodone in the blood or urine. These tests are more expensive so most just test for the presence of the drugs, not the amounts present in the blood or urine. OxyContin is a long acting form of oxycodone. Oxycodone is normally an immediate release product either by itself or in combination with acetaminophen or aspirin.
