What is oxycodone?
Oxycodone is a prescription drug. It comes in five forms:
- immediate-release tablet
- extended-release tablet
- immediate-release capsule
- extended-release capsule
All forms of this drug are oral, which means they’re taken by mouth. (Immediate-release drugs are released into the bloodstream right away. Extended-release drugs are released into the bloodstream slowly over time.)
Oxycodone immediate-release tablets are available as the brand-name drugs Oxaydo, Roxicodone, and Roxybond. Oxycodone extended-release tablets are available as the brand-name drug OxyContin.
Oxycodone immediate-release tablets are available as generic drugs. There is no generic version of the extended-release tablets. Generic drugs usually cost less than the brand-name version. In some cases, they may not be available in every strength or form as the brand-name drug.
