OxyContin OC (OxyContin Extended-Release) is a brand name for a controlled-release formulation of the opioid medication oxycodone. It's used for the management of moderate to severe pain when around-the-clock pain relief is needed for an extended period.

The "OC" in OxyContin OC stands for "OxyContin Controlled-Release," indicating that the medication is formulated to release oxycodone gradually over an extended period, usually around 12 hours.
