Pain Home > Oxycotyn

Were you looking for information about OxyContin? Oxycotyn is a common misspelling of OxyContin.
OxyContin® (oxycodone ER) is a prescription painkiller specifically used for relieving moderate to severe pain. It is a long-acting opioid drug that provides around-the-clock pain control. The tablets are specially designed to release the medication continuously over a 12-hour period, which provides patients with convenient twice-daily dosing (as opposed to short-acting oxycodone, which is taken several times a day). Some of the common side effects that have been reported with this medication include drowsiness, constipation, and dizziness.
