OxyContin 30 mg Tablets

OxyContin® (oxycodone ER) is a narcotic medication often prescribed for the treatment of moderate to severe pain. It comes in the form of extended-release tablets and is available in a number of different strengths, including:
  • 10 mg OxyContin tablets
  • 15 mg OxyContin tablets
  • 20 mg OxyContin tablets
  • 30 mg OxyContin tablets
  • 40 mg OxyContin tablets
  • 60 mg OxyContin tablets
  • 80 mg OxyContin tablets
  • 160 mg OxyContin tablets.
Since not everyone can tolerate OxyContin, dosing must be individualized for each person. Some people may be more sensitive to the narcotic than others, while some may have previously taken this particular medication (and may be more tolerable to higher doses). The OxyContin dosage that your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
  • The type and dose of other painkillers you have taken
  • The severity of your pain
  • How you respond to OxyContin
  • Other medications you are taking
  • Other medical conditions you may have.
