I OxyContin is the time release version of oxycodone and it is still being made.
The Contin in the name is how you know it is time released. I take MS Contin at bedtime, this is morphine in the time release format, and regular oxycodone for my break through pain. I hope you understand what I'm trying to say. My brain fog (fibromyalgia) is acting up today, making it hard for me to find the right words.
The following is from drugs.com:
What is OxyContin?
OxyContin (oxycodone) is an opioid pain medication. An opioid is sometimes called a narcotic.
OxyContin is used to treat moderate to severe pain that is expected to last for an extended period of time. OxyContin is used for around-the-clock treatment of pain. It is not to be used on an "as-needed" basis for pain.
Hoping you have a day that is not too painful.
