What is Oxycontin?
Oxycontin is a powerful prescription narcotic pain medication. It is usually prescribed for people who have severe chronic pain, such as someone with cancer. It is an opiod, and has the same narcotic ingredient in it as Percocet. The difference is that Oxycontin; it is time released and delivers a steady dose of the narcotic to your system over the course of 8-10 hours.
The medication Oxycontin has been given the nickname of “hillbilly heroin”, and it is said to be as powerful as the addictive drug heroin. This medication has been responsible for many overdoses due to its strength.
The medication is also crushed and snorted, or crushed and orally ingested to deliver the medication into the system all at once. This is done by people who abuse this drug.
The label on the Oxycontin prescription warns against breaking or crushing the drug, because it can deliver an overdose of this medication if it is taken this way.
This drug is an opiod and is said to deliver a feeling of euphoria. This is one of the reasons the drug has become so addictive. Withdrawal off of Oxycontin is said to be worse than withdrawing from heroin.
