In brief: See below

Do you mean ms-contin? Both MS-Contin & Oxycontin are time-release formulations.
Ms-contin is morphine; Oxycontin is oxycodone. Caution is advised for MS-Contin in pancreatitis. Both can cause biliary spasm. Oxy is 1-2 times as potent as ms-contin. Both have high addictive potential. Both can cause nausea, constipation, respiratory depression, etc.
