No. OxyContin is timed release so the 80mg dose trickles in over an 8-12 hour period. Taking 80mg of immediate release oxycodone could cause dangerous respiratory depression or a possible overdose. They are not equivalent because one is time release(OxyContin) and one(oxycodone) releases all the medication at once.
