I KNOW WHAT OXYCONTIN IS AN THEY COME IN 10,20,40 AND 80MG. IT IS GOOD FOR PAIN AND YOU ONLY NEED TO TAKE THEM MAYBE TWICE A DAY. IT IS SIMILAR TO METHEDONE BUT DOES NOT LAST AS LONG. ALSO THEY MAKE YOU ITCH. I DONT KNOW HOW YOU WOULD REACT TO IT SINCE YOU ARE SENSITIVE TO PERCACETS AND CODEINE, BUT THEY DO NOT HAVE THAT INGRIEDENT. JODY
