Were you looking for information about OxyContin? Oxycotten is a common misspelling of OxyContin.
Healthcare providers often prescribe OxyContin® (oxycodone ER) for the treatment of moderate to severe pain. The narcotic medication is classified as a controlled substance in the United States and has a significant potential for abuse. The tablets are specially designed to release the medication continuously over 12 hours; this provides patients with the convenience of taking the medication just twice a day (instead of several times a day, as is necessary with short-acting oxycodone) and provides for more steady pain control.
