Is there a difference between Watson brand oxycodone hydrochloride and Oxycontin brand oxycodone hydrochloride?

generic have a different binder which is harder to snort

Oxycontin is pure oxycodone, while Watson brand oxycodone is genaric and contains acetominofen which is Tylenol. if you are using it recreationally id suggest staying away from genaric pills with acetominofen because it can become toxic to the liver causing it to shut down in high doses.



I am not sure I understand your question. As far as Oxycodone (instant release), I don't believe Purdue, the maker of brand name Oxycontin even makes a brand name Oxcodone.

If you are talking about Oxycontin (controlled release) which is released into your system slowly, it was originally produced by the Purdue company. At this time, they have given Watson permission to make, sell and distribute this drug, so I am assuming that it is made to Purdues quality and control.

Many people get confused as to what the difference is between oxycodone and Oxycontin.

Oxycodone is the name of the drug. It can be combined with acetaminphen (Percocet, Tylox, to name a few) or aspirin (Percodan is one brand name). It is also combined in cough surpressants and other medications.

Oxycontin (the "contin" means continious) is sold in different strengths, and is used alone soley for time released pain relief. This medications is suppose to last for up to 12 hours, but many times people have episodes of "breakthrough pain" and they are also given oxycodone to help get them through, until their next dose of the contolled release med.

It is important that you never break or chew Oxycontin, as you will then get the entire dose which could cause an overdose.
