Not what it does, not side effects. Is it 10mg codeine, 3mg tylenol, beer information on the web talks of side effects, saying it is an opioid, talks of precautions... If I ask, what ingredients are in Oxycontin, can anyone tell me?
The active drug is just oxycodone and it is manufactured in such a way that it releases slowly. It does have "inactive" ingredients (ingredients that make a pill a pill) and here are those:
The 10 mg, 15 mg, 20 mg, 30 mg, 40 mg, 60 mg and 80 mg tablets contain the following inactive ingredients: butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT), hypromellose, polyethylene glycol 400, polyethylene oxide, magnesium stearate, titanium dioxide.
The 10 mg tablets also contain hydroxypropyl cellulose.
The 15 mg tablets also contain black iron oxide, yellow iron oxide, and red iron oxide.
The 20 mg tablets also contain polysorbate 80 and red iron oxide.
The 30 mg tablets also contain polysorbate 80, red iron oxide, yellow iron oxide, and black iron oxide.
The 40 mg tablets also contain polysorbate 80 and yellow iron oxide.
The 60 mg tablets also contain polysorbate 80, red iron oxide and black iron oxide.
The 80 mg tablets also contain hydroxypropyl cellulose, yellow iron oxide and FD&C Blue #2/Indigo Carmine Aluminum Lake.
Oxycodone is a white, odorless crystalline powder derived from the opium alkaloid, thebaine. It is semi synthetic. The chemical name is 4, 5a-epoxy-14-hydroxy-3-methoxy-17-methylmorphinan-6-one hydrochloride.
