Patient : I am currently taking 400 mg. of mscontin q8 and 30 mg. of oxyir q4 prn. my question is: what, if any is the differance between oxycontin and roxicontin. I am talking about the time released forms of both. I would like to ask my pcp to switch from the mscontin however medicaid will only pay for the roxi not oxy forms of this medication. also would this be an acceptable replacment for the morphine?
