OxyContin® (oxycodone ER) is a prescription medication used for treating moderate to severe pain.

Because the drug is classified as a controlled substance in the United States, there are special rules and regulations for prescribing and obtaining it. The drug comes in the form of extended-release tablets that are typically taken twice a day.
