Depending on the amount taken, traces of Oxycodone can stay in the body for as little as three days or as much as three weeks. The likelihood of this drug appearing on a drug screening test will largely depend on what type of test you are taking and how sensitive the test is. Some modern drug screening tests are so sensitive that they can pick up traces of drugs taken up to three weeks previously. It is far more likely that a blood test will pick up traces of the drug than urine tests as blood tests tend to be more sensitive in picking up chemicals related to drugs.
What is OxyContin
OxyContin is a brand name for the drug Oxycodone. Oxycodone is used as a pain relief medicine for very severe pain. It is in the same drug group as morphine, heroin and codeine. This group of drugs are referred to as opioids. The drug comes in tablet or pill form and is used for many types of moderate to severe pain relief, including treatment for the pain caused by cancers.
This is an extremely strong, prescription pain relief drug and should not be taken recreationally or unless advised to do so by a doctor or medical professional. The use of the drug can be potentially harmful to your body and its use should only be under a doctor's guidance only. Side effects can include fatigue, memory loss and euphoria. High doses or overdoses can cause respiratory and heart problems and even death. The drug is highly addictive, in the same way that heroin is, and is not advisable to even try unless prescribed.
