Is it ok to use a pill cutter to cut an 80 mg xr oxycontin in half?

No. never cut or crush an oxycontin. It is time release and you aren't supposed to get the full dose at once. Cutting it breaks the coating and you would get the full dose at once. People kill themselves by doing that.


I know the other person said not to do it, but if you live in America, you can only get the Oxycontins that say OP on them. These are basically abuse proof and you can cut them into as many pieces as you want while keeping the pill time released. So, if you live in America and/or the pill says "OP 80" on it, then yes you can cut it in half. Trust me, I've done it.
