Roxycodone and Oxycodone are very much the same. "Roxycodone" is only a brand name used to seperate/categorize (fast- release) from (time-release). Same goes for "Percocet" which is another brand name for Oxycodone that contains acetaminophen.

Are Roxycodons and Oxycodone in the same family? Are they the same?

Oxycodone is found in fast-acting opiates such as Percocet(which also contains tylenol), Roxicodone, and is also in Oxycontin. The only difference between oxycodone and Oxycontin is, Oxycontin is time-released. It distributes its oxycodone slowly over a period of 12 hours, as long as the pill is not cut up or smashed. The 'contin' in 'Oxycontin' stands for continuous.

Take care
