OxyContin® (oxycodone ER) is a prescription pain medication. It is a narcotic that is classified as a "controlled substance" in the United States. OxyContin comes in extended-release tablets and is available in the following strengths:
- 10 mg OxyContin tablets
- 15 mg OxyContin tablets
- 20 mg OxyContin tablets
- 30 mg OxyContin tablets
- 40 mg OxyContin tablets

There is no standard recommended OxyContin dosage. Your healthcare provider will give you dosing recommendations based on several factors, including the severity of your pain, how you respond to OxyContin, and the type and dose of other painkillers you have previously taken.
It is common for healthcare providers to start patients with a low dose of a short-acting oxycodone product and increase the dosage as necessary and as tolerated. Once the dose is stable (if continued pain control is needed), the healthcare provider may recommend that you switch to OxyContin.
