I assume you mean Oxycontin. If so, Oxycontin is an extended release version of Oxycodone. Oxycodone is the generic drug name. Oxycontin is a brand name of Oxycodone. Oxycontinuous release.

OxyContin (oxycodone ER) is a prescription medication used for treating moderate to severe pain. It is a narcotic that works by binding to opioid receptors throughout the body, which produces pain relief, cough suppression, and various other effects. Because the drug is classified as a controlled substance in the United States, there are special rules and regulations for prescribing and obtaining it. The drug comes in the form of extended-release tablets that are typically taken twice a day.

Oxycodone hydrochloride is an opioid pain reliever. It is an active ingredient in many different prescription medications. It is available by itself (in both short- and long-acting products) or in combination with other active ingredients.

Oxycodone is a narcotic and is a "controlled substance" in the United States.
