Is there difference between oxycodone hyrochloride and Oxycontin?
No. Oxycodone is the main ingredient in Oxycontin. Oxycontin is just the brand name of the pill. For instance an 80mg Oxycontin means it has 80mg of oxycodone in it.
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.
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
