This question has also been asked and answered here: What's the difference between Oxycontin OC 40 and OP 40?
There has been so much confusion over this new version of oxycontin. It can not be crushed, snorted, injected, abused. The OP (Oxycontin Purdue) active ingredients will be destroyed if try to abuse them. There are many rumors "out there" about if and who is still manufacturing "the regular oxycontin" medication. The best thing you can do is ask your pharmacist. The most knowledgeable ones regarding this medication will be the ones nearest to pain clinics and hospitals. You can also call Purdue Pharmaceuticals. FYI, there have been several deaths related to this new version of oxycontin. The irony of this is mind boggling... Manufacture a medication so it can't be abused which will save lives. But manufacture it in a way where it doesn't work fast enough, so people take more (thinking it isn't working) and die anyway. Purdue has a big problem on their hands over this new oxy. Please be careful with this medication.
