Oxycontin is a VERY addictive pain medication used for cancer patients. It has gained popularity and is abused regulary....alot of my friends from my home town have gotten hooked on it......beware.....he's probably got a problem.

Very dangerous drug - oxycontin - not to be confused with oxycodone (or Percocet). Oxycontin is used only in patients in which addiction is not an issue - those with incurable diseases. It has been found to be highly addictive, very, very unsafe.

Hmmmm, maybe he did say Oxycodone. I could have mis-heard him, or misinterpreted what he said. He was like... "Oxyco something." Either way, taking drugs not prescribed for him. And he just finished a prescription for Darvocet that WAS prescribed for him at the ER over the weekend.

I would guess that your "recovering addict husband" is now active again with his addiction.

Oxycodone, oxycotin it doesn't matter both are highly addictive and of the opiate family. The form in which he is using could tell you what it is, oxycotin will be chewed to be obsorbed faster or cut down to be snorted, his 25 pills will be gone in a matter of days.

Hi jas,

I've heard oxycontin frequently referred to as "hillbilly heroin."

Yikes!

Oxy, whatever it is, and I think it goes by two names, it very very addictive and dangerous. My elderly mother took this for pain and she was way out there mentally and more forgetful than usual. So, their are mental effects from this drugs, and not that great. This is a drug to be used with extreme caution, and certainly not with someone with a history of addiction. I had read up on it and was concerned about its addictive potential. She had to gradually be weaned off this too. She's okay now, and mentally herself again, but still it was frightening where her mind was at at that time.

Taking someone else's prescription drugs is not okay anyway. I'd say a dangerous addiction is kicking in unfortunately.

Jas,

I agree that it really doesn't matter much which one it is...other than the fact that one is more dangerous than the other.

Both are highly addictive.

I also agree that he is no longer "recovering"....he is actively using.

If you have ever used Alanon...now would be a good time to really try to put those principles to practice.

I agree...both highly addictive, and both should not be used without the supervision of a doctor. I would be very concerned.

My stbx husband, was a heroin addict before i met him. Years later, we move, open a business, he "hurts" his back and they give him oxys. Only supposed to take like 20 mg. He took 80 mg a few times a day, loved the high, lost alot of wt., kept getting prescriptions from different doctors, legal drug dealers, from there buying on the streeet, then the heroin,methadone, now in prison 5 yrs. I have now decided enough, im gone.
