Sherijo72: these are the same medication OXYCODONE but Oxycontin tablet. Swallow it whole to avoid exposure to a potentially fatal dose.is timed release and many different strengths where Roxicodone is a branded generic made by Roxanne company and is IR and also comes in a few different strengths but it FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, not a timed release some take both the timed release and the doctor well give them the IM oxycodone for as needed for breakthrough pain. Chuck1957 YOU NEVER break or chew an extended-release tablet this could cause on overdose.But anyway they are the same except the way they are released in your system.both are oxycodone.
