Oxycodone (OXY): Oxycontin
Oxycodone is a member of the synthetic opiate class. The drug is used for pain relief (most commonly for chronic pain); oxycodone prescriptions are often diverted and sold on the street for illegal use. Oxycontin is a time released formula of oxycodone. Overdoses are most often the result of people crushing the time-released Oxycontin pills and consuming the crushed powder in one dose. The structure of oxycodone is not close enough to codeine or morphine to ensure the drug is detected by regular Opiate immunoassays.
