The reason for my question is to understand if this medication is currently being abused by teenagers. My son is 16 and his friends use "slang" words that I do not understand, such as "Roxies" & "Bars", what do these drugs translate to in true drug names?
"Roxies" are slang for high dose oxycodone pills with the brand name of Roxicodone and they usually contain 15 or 30mg oxycodone but it could refer to any pill containing oxycodone. They are highly addictive. I'm not sure what "bars" are unless the mean barbiturates?. "Perks" usually refers to Percocet or Percodan which is oxycodone and either acetaminophen or aspirin combinations. "Vikes" refers to Vicodin or hydrocodone. "Oxycotton" is slang for OxyContin which is a high dose extended release formula of oxycodone-they are also known as OC's or OP's. Erowid's web site www.erowid.org has a lot of info on illicit drug use.
