OxyContin and oxycodone are both opioids which serve medically as pain relievers for moderate to severe pain and are highly sought out on the street. Cost of OxyContin pills on the street may vary by location and by dosage.

What Is The Street Price Of Oxycodone?

OxyContin sold on the street costs around $1/mg and comes in 10 mg, 20 mg, 40 mg, 80 mg, and 160 mg size pills.

OxyContin is highly addictive and is one of the most abused drugs on the street today.

As with many prescription drugs sold on the street, an entire bottle will cost hundreds of dollars, and someone battling addiction may find themselves taking multiple pills per day.

Addiction to OxyContin is both extremely expensive and potentially deadly.

How Much Does An OxyContin Pill Cost On The Street?

How much an OxyContin pill costs on the street will vary depending on the contained dose but can cost upwards of $50-$80 per pill. The effects of the pill will last around 12 hours.

Cost Difference Between OxyContin, Percocet, And Oxycodone On The Street

OxyContin and oxycodone both contain the active ingredient oxycodone.

The difference between the two is that generic oxycodone is an immediate-release version that lasts for about five to six hours, while OxyContin is a brand name version meant to last all day.

On the street, a pill of generic oxycodone will cost around $12-$40. OxyContin can go for much higher, at around $50-$80 per pill, mostly due to its brand name.

Percocet is a brand-name pill of oxycodone mixed with acetaminophen. Percocet will cost less, at around $10-$20 per pill, because it contains less of the narcotic oxycodone.
