Opioids are way different than the alcohol withdrawal timeline. I know that Ive taken both OxyContin and oxycodone , and its important to know the difference. Its really easy to get addicted, and the withdrawals from both can be really scary. OxyContin is meant to last a lot longer, so if you take too much or you crush it up, its really easy to overdose. Thats extremely scary when you think about it. A lot of people think of opioids almost like alcohol, and they try to justify their use by thing they use other legal recreational drugs. In reality, their extremely potent and can cause you long term damage. Whether you are an alcoholic or your addicted to heroin, youre going to need inpatient care. Rehab is really your only option.

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

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.
