What is the difference in oxycontin and oxycodone?
OxyContin is oxycodone so most tests will just show the presence of oxycodone and/or the metabolites. The only way they can tell the difference is if they test quantitative measures in which the OxyContin is generally a higher dose than oxycodones so will show more oxycodone in the blood or urine. These tests are more expensive so most just test for the presence of the drugs, not the amounts present in the blood or urine. OxyContin is a long acting form of oxycodone. Oxycodone is normally an immediate release product either by itself or in combination with acetaminophen or aspirin.
James0915 you are VERY incorrect, I have been on Oyxmorphone before, and it's called Opana which is available in either an IR or an ER. It is also extremely expensive. You would know if you were perscribed Opana, also only 1 out of 2 million Docs are willing to perscribe a potent drug like that. My Dr was a dork, whatever I asked for and in any quantity he would give me.
Everyone PLEASE! Percocet, the Generic version of OxyCodone W/ Tylenol or Aspirin which are called " Roxie's ". Coming in 5mg/7.5mg/10mgs. NOW, if they have NO acetaminophen in them they are called OxyCodone, coming in forms of 5/10/15/20/30mg's. Those are what everyone mistakes on the streets with OxyContin, which is the big sister of OxyCodone, forms of 10/20/30/40/60/80mg's. They used to have 160mg's. I miss them. Anyways, THAT'S how it is. Don't believe me? Look up " Big Pharma " who is the pharmaceutical Company who makes them. Good Day.
