Brief Answer:
it is not over the counter

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for your query.

You have not mentioned the reason for pain. All pain are not the same hence different meds are required.

Anyway, it seems that you have taken tramadol but it didn't work. Oxycontin is more effective but it is not available over the counter. You will need doctor's prescription for that. So the best way to go about it is visiting a doctor or the ER.

Sometimes over the counter Tylenol (paracetamol) can help.

Hope this helps.
Regards
