Oxycontine : Oxycontine and Percocet are basically same compound oxycodone. Only difference is oxycontine is slow releasing oxycodone and Percocet is fast releasing so if u take any of those, your drug test will be positive for oxycodone.Thanks.

If you have Rx: People who are on prescribed opioids can legally take them, and unless you are a bus driver or in some other safety-sensitive position, employers have no right to take any action if you are taking medications as prescribed. Drug tests cannot tell the difference between the oxycodone in Oxycontin and the oxycodone in percocet.
