Can some one tell me what is the difference between
Oxycotin and Oxycodone?
What is the sucess rate of getting off these on your own? It's not for me. A family member of mine has issues. I do hear that it's highly addictive either way.

they are the same med, but oxycontin is time released...in other words, you get steady dosing over so many hours, as opposed to the med hitting you all at once then wearing off quickly
Now and again we try
To just stay alive
Maybe we'll turn it all around
'Cause it's not too late
It's never too late

Gotta love that Wikipedia.
Oh it's highly addicting all right. Wouldn't know much of the success rates of getting off, as factors in any recovery vary widely from individual to individual and some of these include but are not limited to:
-Length of time the individual has been on the drug
-Method of use or abuse (oral, insufflation or I.V.)
-Personal motivation / awareness of problem
Oxy is a fairly potent opioid, a synthetic derivative of (ultimately) the opium poppy. You may recognize it by some pretty popular brand-names such as Tylox and Percocet, which combine oxy with acetaminophen. (Percodan combined oxy with aspirin and caffeine but has largely been supplanted by the Percocet formulation.)
Good luck to you and yours,

Oxycontin is bound with the same plastic that beverage bottles are made with - PET (polyethylene terephthalate). When folks crush them up it destroys the time delay mechanism, delivering a huge and somtimes toxic dose . . .
