Were you looking for information about OxyContin? Oxycoten is a common misspelling of OxyContin.
OxyContin® (oxycodone ER) is a medication often prescribed to people with long-term, moderate to severe pain. It is an opioid pain reliever that comes in the form of extended-release tablets. These tablets are specially designed to release the medication continuously over a 12-hour period, which allows you to take the drug only twice a day and provides for more steady pain control. You should talk to your healthcare provider before taking this medication if you have a history of alcohol or drug dependence.
