I have been prescribed and taking oxycodone 10 hcl, 1-2 tablets every 6 hours. Today saw my spine surgeon (nurse practitioner) to get a refill prescription and what I was given was oxycontin 10 mg extended release, the prescription says to take 1-2 tablets every 6 hours. Isn't this too much from what I have been taking? My pain level has been maintained on the oxycodone 10 hcl every 6 hours along with tramadol 50 mg every 6 hours and neurontin 600 mg 4 times a day.

No, it's still the same dosage of the relevant medication, because Oxycontin also contains Oxycodone. The different, however, is that what you were taking was the regular release formulation and the Oxycontin is the time released formulation.

It's the time interval that could be problematic, because the Oxycontin is usually taken every 12 hours.

Did you ask them about the change?

I did ask about the change and finally this morning we heard back. The oxycontin prescription was a mistake and they provided a new prescription for the oxycodone, so all is well.

Thank you Verwon for your response.
