- oxycontin, vicodin, narcotic
Yes, they are both Opiate pain medications. Vicodin has tylenol in it, while OxyContin does not.
As sweetlemon pointed out both these meds are opoid type pain killers. The vicodin has hydrocodone and acetominophen together while the oxycontin has just the pain killer oxycodone in it. Oxycodone is a stronger opiate than hydrocodone.
Hope this helps,

OK girls, excuse my ignorance but this question got me wondering. Im not real familiar with the class of drugs. Like something is a schedule one or two and so on. Are they in the same class as far as that goes? -Alem
Sorry if I highjacked your question gcastor. -Alem
Depends on what you mean by class. Oxycontin is much more controlled and I believe is a diffeent class for that reason. You cannot "call in" refills like you can with Vicodin.
