What is Oxycontin?
Oxycontin is a medication similar to Oxycodone that is prescribed for moderate-to-severe pain. Patients who use it for pain relief start to feel the drug's effects within approximately 60 minutes. Street names for oxycontin include "cotton," "hillbilly heroin," "kicker," and "ox." It is available in a tablet form, and some users chew it or crush it up and snort it to get the effects of the drug sooner. Some people who are addicted dissolve it in water and inject it. This prescription drug is controversial due to its marketing, potential for dependency, and patent status. Oxycontin is within the same class of drug as heroin, Demerol, and morphine.
Causes of Oxycontin Abuse
When "hillbilly heroin" is used in a way other than prescribed, it produces a sense of euphoria that is very similar to the kind of high a heroin addict experiences. Over time, the user develops a tolerance for the drug and must take larger doses to get the same effect. A full-blown addiction can develop quickly, and the user develops a physical dependency on it. Stopping suddenly means that the individual will go into withdrawal. Even those people using the drug as prescribed are cautioned not to stop taking it all at once.

Why Quit Taking Oxycontin? Some Reasons to Consider:
- "Oxy" can cause respiratory depression.
- Since "ox" is eliminated from the body through the user's urine, it can build up in the bodies of people with kidney problems, sometimes with fatal results.
- Large doses can depress the respiratory system enough that a person stops breathing.
- An overdose of "oxys" can also be fatal, since this drug slows down the user's breathing after they experience the initial "rush."
