M 5 Pill

QUESTION: What is M 5 pill?
ANSWER: M 5 pill is 5mg Oxycodone hydrochloride, a generic variation for brand-named OxyContin, a product of Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals. Unlike Mallinckrodt's "512" pill, "M 5" contains no acetaminophen, just pure oxycodone, which is an opioid pain reliever.

DESCRIPTION: Round, white, debossed with an "M" inside a square shape on one side, and a "5" placed over a score on the other.
