How Should OxyContin Be Stored?

In general, this drug should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children. Because it can be a desirable drug of abuse, make sure to keep it in a safe place.

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you forget to take a dose of OxyContin and notice significant pain, take your missed dose right away. However, make sure to wait the recommended time before the next dose, and never take a double dose. Keep in mind that this could interfere with your normal dosing schedule in such a way that you will be required to take the medication at an inconvenient time (such as in the middle of the night).
