According to the pharmaceutical company, there is no difference in the way it controls pain. OC (Oxycodone Continous) and OP (Oxycontin Perdue) are both extended release oxycodone. The OC was reformulated to make it more difficult to abuse/inject the medication. There have been many complaints that the new OP does not control pain as well and causes many gastrointestinal problems. Some people even experienced withdrawal symptoms due to the pill passing through their system whole, not breaking down at all. As long as it works for you, great! That's the most important thing. Good luck and hope this helped you.
