Read the Medication Guide provided by your pharmacist before you start taking extended-release Oxycontin OC 60mg each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

The drug may be more effective if you take it with food if you have nausea. In addition to lying down for one to two hours with as little head movement as possible, ask your doctor or pharmacist how to decrease nausea.
