Doc has got me all perc'd up
. They work pretty well, but is there anything better in that class? He's obviously not going to give oxycon
but anything else I should ask for?
Percocet and Oxycontin both the same drug: Oxycodone.
The drugs themselves are the same. The preparations are different. Oxycontin contains more oxycodone than percocet, but it is also prepared as a "sustained release", or "time release". This means they can give a large dose, which will slowly be released over a period of time to maintain a steady concentration in the body. Recreational users crush the Oxycontin pills, releasing the oxycodone from its microencapsulation, and getting a high dosage of powder (which contains binders and fillers making it inappropriate for injection and increasing the damage done by snorting).
Hm, so you don't end up pulling a Heath Ledger, you might want to read more.
