PRONUNCIATION CORRECTION:
AWK-SEE-CON-TON
A legitimate opiate pain medication intended only to alleviate moderate to severe intractable pain under the supervision of a physician for documented conditions. It is dangerous and against the law not to mention better judgement and common sense to pursue any other use. To imply that oxycontin or any narcotic analgesic should be taken with alchohol or taken in crushed form is quite wrong, not to mention stupid and DEADLY. Oxycontin relieves severe nerve pain and other moderate to severe pain in those who REQUIRE IT, by slightly depressing the central nervous system- thus someone not initiated in opiate therapy (as in someone who is not prescribed this medicine or whom takes it against package instructions and doctors orders) is putting their lives at risk by getting 12 hours worth of medicine all at once, thus excessively depressing their central nervous systems and ceasing the breathing mechanism, slowing heart/pulse rate, DUH...Oxycontin is not intended as a 'high' for anyone, but as a PRESCRIBED, TAKEN AS DIRECTED pain relief medicine for those in pain PERIOD. In this capacity it can save lives. It is also a controlled substance under the law, because of the fools who believe it's intended for getting stoned. It's certainly hoped the erroneous definitions dissapear- any comparison to heroin is irrelevant(although heroin is also a pain medicine which was so widely abused in our society that it has been outlawed in this country, though it is still in use overseas today for legitimate purpose).
Jane was prescribed OXYCONTIN for deep visceral nerve pain following a botched back operation which left her in agonizing pain. OXYCONTIN has given Jane some quality of life back. Jane must keep her OXYCONTIN locked in a secret cabinet because of the idiots who wish to abuse it in order to get 'high'. Jane does not get high from her medication, she gets relief.

Oxycontin is a controversial drug which is specially coated to deliver small amounts of oxycodone over a long peroid of time. This narcotic is often abused by removing the coating and then either injected, snorted, or taken orally to enter the body all at once. This causes a rushing high similar to heroin.
Mmmm oxy... I sure wish I had some right now ;)

ocycotin is a highly addictive synthetic opiate. Its chemical make up is side by side to heroin. But unlike the raw street drug heroin, in with you never no its exact content, oxycontin is pure and clean. i like to think of scientist with gowns and hairnets mixing my shit then some street scum mixing in watever concoction will make 4 a better profit, ive nown 2many overdosers dyin from streetnigger shit. not prejudose just miss the dead!!
oxycontin, as great a high as any other maybe just a little better, but as anyone who can explain thats been in the shoes of an o head what goes up must come down, and belive me you uasally come crashing down, like most of us we cant afford rehab so my best advice for kicking is either take just enough each day not to be as sick as a cold turkey and wean off or switch over to perc 10-325 until the oc is out of the system then try and score some suboxin, finaly, get yourself some nyquil cause its probly the only way youll get any rest for at least a clean week

The medicinal name for what we know on the street as Hillbilly Heroin. The new "In" drug.
Be like that ugly-beyond-belief, walking pile of dog crap, Jack Osbourne. Take a bottle's worth of Oxycontin a day for two years straight, overdose daily, sob and cry and get all emotional, check into a drug clinic, and become recognized as a national hero and role model to all for not poppin' pills anymore, something that you shouldn't have been doing anyway. This is how we teach the soon-to-be f**ked up youth of the planet nowadays.

A prescription pill that contains a semi-synthetic opioid known as oxycodone. It has (very, very roughly) the same potency as morphine, a more well-known opioid, and is used for the same purpose (relief of moderate to severe pain). Oxycontin in particular is notable for containing no other active drugs besides oxycodone, which makes it very popular with the illegal drug use community. Because oxycontin is a time-release medication, it typically contains more oxycodone than instant release cousins such as Percocet and Percodan. Recreational users are more likely to crush up and parachute, snort or smoke the pill in order to bypass the time-release mechanism. Injecting it is also a known method of administration. Like most opioid-containing preparations, oxycontin is potentially very physically addictive, and that combined with its reportedly euphoric effects have kept demand for it very high since its introduction in the mid 1990's. This in turn has made it one of the most expensive recreational drugs, by weight, with 80 mg pills sometimes costing as much as $100.
Oxycontin is pretty damn awesome, but I'm not an idiot so I'm not gonna do it again for a long, long time. It's also nice, medically speaking, because it alleviates many people's suffering.

A semi-synthetic opiate was intorduced in the late 1990's by Purdue Pharmeceutical. For recreational users, its heaven in a pill. Feelings of extreme euphoria and well being are common. Along with a wonderfully annoying thing called an "opiate itch". Considered to be one of the most enjoyable opiates on the market today.
I was searchin through my parents medicine cabinet and found some Oxycontin 80's! Brought them home and crushed one up and railed that shit. Maaannn, Oxy is fucking better than sex man
