Yes: In general you are correct to try to avoid taking two medications that act similarly. If you can tolerate fewer meds, this is always better, especially when dealing with opioid medications.

Yes: It seems likely you were prescribed the two different medications by different doctors. It is very important that you receive narcotics from only one physician who is managing your pain as you may be taking an excessive dose. You will have no adverse effects stopping one of the oxycodone medications.
