You should NEVER crush, chew, split or alter OxyContin in any way. This is a very dangerous practice. The new OxyContin formulation prevents you from being able to easily crush the pills. If you try to crush them, even the pieces remain time release somewhat. Abusers crushing these pills to abuse the medication is the reason for the formula change and this has altered the way the drug works for those of us who take our meds like they are supposed to be taken. They do not work as good as they used to. Please dont do this kind of behavior! You are on a very dangerous path that will eventually kill you!!
