I know this has probably been asked a million times but if a person is used to taking 30mg of Percocet (and at times have taken 60), then what's the most accurate OxyContin dosage equivalent? The reason I ask is I have a friend who used to take percocets after an car accident but now takes them recreationally. He usually crushes 30mg of percocet although I have seen him take 60 in the past (but 60 is rare for him). He just got some OxyContin 30mg recently and intends on crushing one and taking like he used to with the percocets but I read somewhere that crushing OxyContin would kill you. I want to convince him not to do it if that's true so I'm trying to find some real answers. Also if he takes percocet 30mg shouldn't he only take like half of the OxyContin 30mg since Oxy's have more drug in them? Sorry if this is an ignorant question I just want to make sure he'll be ok...
What's the difference between percocet 30 and oxycontin 30?

Oxycontin, oxycodone, perc (slang for oxycodone), Roxicodone all mean almost the same thing.. EXCEPT that OxyContin is a time-release version of Oxycodone, and should NOT be crushed/up the nose. Everything else is fine in moderation and without mixing in anything else such as alcohol, benzos, etc.
The difference between the drugs and the way your "friend" is abusing them, is life and death, not dosage. And no, your "friend" will not be ok. Please tell your "friend" he is headed towards an early death. With such a long explanation, I think the "friend" is you. I may be wrong, but what I said is true.
