Were you looking for information about OxyContin? Oxcontin is a common misspelling of OxyContin.
OxyContin® (oxycodone ER) is a morphine-like medicine commonly used to treat long-term, moderate to severe pain. It comes in the form of extended-release tablets and only needs to be taken twice daily (as opposed to short-acting oxycodone, which is taken several times a day). The medicine has a significant potential for both physical and psychological dependence and abuse, so be sure to talk to your healthcare provider before using it if you have a history of alcohol or drug abuse.
