is oxycontin abuse?
abuse is using oxycontin for recreational, rather than medical,
purposes. When a person who is prescribed oxycontin takes
more than is prescribed in order to get high, or if a person
who is not taking the drug for pain management but rather
for pleasure, that is oxycontin abuse. People who abuse oxycontin
will often dissolve the time-release coating on the pill,
or crush the oxycontin, so that all of the drug is delivered
at once when it is swallowed, snorted, or injected. Oxycontin
abuse creates a very powerful and euphoric feeling. The risk
of oxycontin abuse is physical and psychological dependence.
When an abuser of oxycontin becomes addicted to oxycontin,
use of the drug will continue even as consequences of oxycontin
abuse become worse. If you or someone you know is trapped
in the cycle of oxycontin abuse, Oxycontin

What is an oxycontin
oxycontin pill, which can come in 10 milligram (mg), 20 mg,
40 mg, 80 mg, and 160 mg doses, contains a strong opiate called
oxycodone hydrochloride. Opiates are drugs that are either
derived from opium poppies or are chemically similar to drugs
that are derived from opium poppies. Oxycontin is designed
to relieve pain. An oxycontin pill will gradually release
its active ingredient of oxycodone into the bloodstream. Oxycontin
pills are coated with a special ingredient that causes the
drug to be gradually released over time. Purchased legitimately,
oxycontin can cost from $1 to $10 per oxycontin pill.
