OXYCONTIN TOPPED THE LIST OF MOST ABUSED PRESCRIPTION DRUGS

 

 

Oxycodone and hydrocodone are the most popular drugs among Americans who abuse prescription painkillers.

 

OxyContin and Percocet are brand names for drugs containing oxycodone. Brand names of drugs that contain hydrocodone include Vicodin and Lortab.

Researchers looked at more than 3,500 prescription painkiller abusers in 160 drug-treatment programs across the United States. They found that 45 percent liked oxycodone and 30 percent liked hydrocodone.

 

Both drugs come in pill form, but almost 64 percent of oxycodone abusers and just over one-quarter of hydrocodone abusers crushed the tablets and inhaled the drug. One in five abusers said they sometimes dissolved oxycodone in water and injected it. Less than 5 percent said they injected hydrocodone.

 

The survey found that 54 percent preferred the high they got from oxycodone, while 20 percent said the high from hydrocodone was better.

Both drugs are opioids, which are prescribed to treat pain.
