Brief Answer:
No difference in efficacy

Detailed Answer:

Thereotically there should be no difference in the effectiveness of pain management of 3 '10 mg' oxycodone and One '30 mg' oxycodone. You can take them till the refill is done. However do not abuse it over the prescribed dose and the efficacy would not last long as they have addiction potential.
