How Is Oxycodone Supplied?

Long-Acting Oxycodone Dosage Forms

Oxycodone also comes in extended-release tablets (OxyContin®). This medication is available in generic form, although the availability of generic OxyContin has become somewhat limited, due to the removal of several generic products from the marketplace (as the result of patent lawsuits and settlements).
 
These products include:
 
Only the 10, 20, 40, and 80 mg OxyContin tablets are being manufactured in generic form at this time.
 

Combination Oxycodone Dosage Forms

Oxycodone also comes in combination with acetaminophen, ibuprofen, or aspirin. There are many different oxycodone and acetaminophen (also known as oxycodone/APAP) medications available, including:
 
  • Caplets -- Roxicet 5/500 mg
  • Capsules -- Tylox 5/500 mg
  • Tablets:

 

    • Percocet 2.5/325 mg

Many, but not all of these oxycodone/APAP products are available in generic form (see Generic Oxycodone/APAP).
 
Oxycodone and aspirin combination medications are sold under the brand names Endodan® and Percodan® and are available in the following strengths:
 

 

  • Oxycodone hydrochloride 4.5 mg, oxycodone terephthalate 0.38 mg, and aspirin 325 mg (this is a generic form of the older version of Percodan that is very similar, but not exactly equivalent to the current Percodan or Endodan formulations).
     
The oxycodone and ibuprofen combination medication is sold under the brand name Combunox, containing 5 mg of oxycodone hydrochloride and 400 mg of ibuprofen per tablet, and is available in generic form.
