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.
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.
The difference is one Percocet is oxycodone and acetaminophen and the other Percodan is Aspirin and Oxycodone Hydrochloride/Oxycodone Terephthalate . Of course you also have other mixtures such as: Combunox which is Oxycodone HCl and Ibuprofen and Roxicodone which just contains Oxycodone Hydrochloride. I hope this helps but it's best to stay away from all this stuff.
No. Absolutely not. They are both oxycodone. Oxycontin is just a longer acting formulation. Yes they can. The tests at my doctors can definitely tell the difference. one will show up has Oxycontin and the other will show as oxycodone. Now they have tests to make sure patients are using the drugs prescribed. Depending on the test the dr. uses it will tell this difference
MScontin is time released Morphine sulfate (12 hours) at different doses available. Oxycontin is time released oxycodone example of Oxycodone is percocet/with tylenol. Oxycontin also has nothing added to it such as Tylenol. Oxycontin is just oxycodone in a 12hr release formula and made at different doses.
oxycodone. The difference between OxyContin and roxicodone is OxyContin is time-release. This means it is released slowly over a 12 hour period unless you take the time-release coating off of the pill. Roxicodone on the other hand is instant release, contains no coating and has no other ingredients other than oxycodone.
Oxycodone Hydrochloride (HCL) is the generic name for OxyContin, which is the timed-release version of Oxycodone. Oxycodone apap 5-325 is the generic name for Percocet 5/325, or Oxycodone 5mg with Tylenol (acetaminophen) 325mg. OxyContin, while the same effective dosage as Oxycodone, is designed to last 12 hours, where the Percocet is only good for 4-6 hours. OxyContin's effectiveness will drop over time as you become more tolerant, lowering the effectiveness time by almost 4-5 hours…
oxycodin is either a misspelling for oxycodone or Oxycontin. Oxycontin is pure oxycodone into a pill, with inert binders. It is the name of the pill. Oxycodone is the name of the chemical in the pill. Technically they are the same thing... "Technically they are the same thing..." >>>Not really true. Oxycodone is the drug itself, yes. Oxycontin is a time-release version of the medication. If you look at two medications, one oxycodone and one…
Oxycodone 10/325 is the generic version of Percocet, which is a combination of Oxycodone & Acetaminophen (Tylenol). The number 10 is the amount in milligrams of Oxycodone in the pill; the 325 is the amount in milligrams of Tylenol in it. Oxycodone hcl 15mg is Oxycodone Hydrochloride 15mg's, with no other drug mixed in.
Can a drug test tell the difference between 7.5 mg Acetaminophen and Oxycodone Hydrochloride and oxycodone 15 mg?
Oxycontin is just a time release version of oxycodone. I take oxycodone 15mg, which is fast acting, you can get Oxycontin in 60 or 80mg but it is made to work over a longer time period, some people get into trouble with Oxycontin because they break time release by chewing it, this is very dangerous to put that much oxycodone in your system at once. The only way a test would detect the "difference" is…
First, I'm assuming you are referring to Oxycodone (Oxycodine is a common misspelling of Oxycodone). To answer your question they are the same drug... Oxycontin contains Oxycodone, the only difference being that Oxycontin is designed as a time-released version of Oxycodone over 8-12 hours. Oxycontin pills go as high as 160mg per dose. That is why people overdose so easily on Oxycontin when they are chewed up and swallowed or crushed to snort/inject. The high…
No difference, except in the naming. The active ingredient in Roxicodone is oxycodone, so essentially they are one and the same. Oxycodone is also found in Percocet, OxyContin, OxyFast, etc. Some of these meds are short acting, while OxyContin is a sustained release medication. Also worth mentioning is Roxicodone has no APAP, similar to OxyIR, and is often administered to chronic pain patients with liver problems.
No, Oxycodone is in Percocet. If you're meaning Oxycontin and Percocet; the answer is still no because Oxycodone is the ingredient in Oxycontin and the same drug used in Percocet. The only difference is that it may show a higher amount of it, just say you took a few extra Percocet You're good either way though. Oxycontin just is a time released capsule with a large amount of Oxycodone(10-80mg/Each) in it and Percocet has a…
OxyContin is the controlled (timed) release version of Oxycodone which lasts anywhere from 7-12 hours depending on the patient. Regular Oxycodone tablets typically only last 4-6 hours for most patients. MS Contin is the controlled release version of Morphine Sulfate (Morphine), typically taken as a 30mg dose.
The active ingredient in both pills is the same (Cetirizine). The difference between hydrochloride and dihydrochloride is the difference between the non active ingredients in the pills that are added to the drug so that there is enough bulk to make a pill. The above 'advice' is simply rubbish. Any (old Skool) A-Level chemistry student knows the difference between 'hydrochloride' and 'di-hydrochloride': Not the same molecule. However, in layman's terms: cetirizine di-hydrochloride is the real…
Oxycodone and/or its major metabolites may be measured in blood or urine to monitor for abuse, confirm a diagnosis of poisoning, or assist in a medicolegal death investigation. Many commercial opiate screening tests cross-react appreciably with oxycodone and its metabolites, but chromatographic techniques can easily distinguish oxycodone from other opiates.
percocet is 5mg of oxycodone, Oxycontin is 10 mg and up and doesn't contain oxycodone, just Oxycontin which is stronger Percocet is oxycodone & acetaminophen; Oxycontin is actually the trade marked name of time-released oxycodone. Roxicodone is the immediate release form of oxycodone. There are many different names nowadays for hydrocodone (III) and oxycodone (II), with many times the only differences being 1)milligram amount of the narcotic, and 2)what it is mixed with; acetaminophen, ibuprofen…
The drugs themselves are the same. The preparations are different. Oxycontin contains more oxycodone than percocet, but it is also prepared as a "sustained release", or "time release". This means they can give a large dose, which will slowly be released over a period of time to maintain a steady concentration in the body.
both of the medications are fast acting, but the oxycodone 30 mg imm rel is IMMEDIATE RELEASE. There will not be a "time release" film on the pill unlike on an OxyContin. The only disadvantage is that you have to make sure you take the meds at the right time, usually every four hours, or however your doctor recommends.
