Oxycodone is mixed with Tylenol or ibuprofen. But with oxycontin oxycodone is the only only ingredient.

Both are opiates but not the same, oxycontin is a brand name for a pain medication that contains the extended release version of oxycodin

I used to take Benzodiazepines mixed with my oxycodone for chronic pain. I had some serious issues related to cancer, and it was called for. One thing that I learned though, is that oxycodone and OxyContin are not the same drug. Oxycodone is kind of the base for a lot of other drugs. If it has Oxy in the title, its probably mixed.

No, they arent the same thing. I had a friend who thought they were, and she ended up overdosing because she tried to crush up extended-release pills. This put way too much medication in her system all at once. If youre using like youre supposed to, you shouldnt have anything to worry about, but if youre abusing it I would say stop now.
