- About OxyContin
Besides pain, OxyContin can decrease anxiety, cause euphoria,
mental relaxation, respiratory depression, constipation, meiosis
(papillary constriction) and suppression of cough. Like all opioid
analgesics, with increasing doses there is increasing pain relief.
With OxyContin, like morphine, there is no definite maximum dose;
the upper limit of pain control is controlled by side effects.
Recent reports indicate that non-medical use of OxyContin is
relatively high among teenagers. The increased misuse of the drug
has led to numerous emergency admissions and even deaths.

When a father intercepted a text message to his 21-year-old son
Monday night that he says asked if the boy wanted to buy another
supply of OxyContin, the father said he had had enough.
Responding to the text message, the father said he asked the
suspected drug dealer to go ahead and come to his home. The father
said he only meant to confront the man at his home on a quiet
little street just off of South Ham Lane.
