Hi.. Oxycontin is an opioid drug.. Sudden withdrawl may cause withdrawl symptoms.. Hence a very slow and gradual withdrawly may be needed.. It is better to get this done under supervision of a specialist or under cover of a rehabiltitation centre or  drug deaddiction centre.. You may need alternative drugs which can counter act the withdrawl symptoms...
