This question has also been asked and answered here: Oxycodone vs OxyContin - What's the difference?
Hey perscribed meds,
They are the same. Oxycontin is the brand name and oxycodone is the generic. Oxycontin is generally prescribed without acetominophen while oxycodone is generally prescribed with. The will show the same on a drug panel. They last in your system for upto 5 days after your last dose depending on your frequency, strength and personal metabolism.
I take oxycodone and it doesn't have tylenol in it. they have too have a specific test for oxycodone since it doesn't show up as an opiate. I don't know about oxycontin, I have been asking the same question,only i'm prescribed oxycodone and I wanna take an oxycontin so II can sleep longer than 4 hrs. oxycodone lasts 4-6hrs, the other person was wrong. my doc sends tests to the lab. if it is only a dip test you will be fine. How did it turn out?
Thank you for the answers. I found that
On the panel, it does check per each med prescribed.
This can detect the amount in my system in order to insure proper dosing.In these days and times, we have the testing to insure that no abuse is taking place.
In a way , it's ashame. Abuse is a scarey subject. Thanks again.
I've been on 10 mg oxycodone immediate release every 6 hrs or as needed for break thru pain. Also OxyContin 60 mg extended release twice daily. I'm doing well on this script as long as I am not very active. If I try to do normal work or exercise my pain levels increase and I can't function. I need to exercise and move around more. Should I ask for a higher dosage, different medications, or just give up on trying to live a normal pain less life. Help please.
