The 60mg dose is part of the new "suite" of OxyContin dosages placed on the market by its manufacturer, Purdue Pharma, the other dosages being 5, 15, and 30mg. The 60mg tablets are red, and have the same diameter as the lower dosages, but are slightly smaller in diameter than the greenish 80mg tablets. (FYI - the 160mg dose was a blue, oblong pill or "caplet", but is no longer distributed in the U.S.)
Like all other brand-name OxyContin strengths, one side of the 60mg tablet is inscribed with its strength, 60, and the opposite side with OC.
Hope this helps.
