Dosage for OxyContin

Oxycontin (oxycodone hydrochloride) is available as controlled-release tablets in strengths of 10, 15, 20, 30, 40, 60, 80, and 160 mg tablets (60 mg and above used only for opioid tolerant patients).

The tablets must be swallowed whole because broken or chewed tablets release the drug too rapidly and because Oxycontin is rapidly adsorbed, too concentrated levels will be present in the body which can lead to death.

What Drugs, Substances, or Supplements Interact with OxyContin?

Oxycontin may interact with

  • other narcotic pain medications,
  • sedatives,
  • tranquilizers,
  • sleeping pills,
  • muscle relaxers,
  • other medicines that can make you sleepy or slow your breathing,
  • pentazocine,
  • nalbuphine,
  • butorphanol, or
  • buprenorphine.

Tell your doctor all medications and supplements you use. This opioid is often the drug of choice for addictive use and can easily lead to dependency. Some patients may develop tolerance for Oxycontin and need to be slowly weaned off the drug.
