The brand name drug OxyContin is only available in tablet form.  However, its generic oxycodone is available in tablet, capsule and liquid forms.  I could only find capsules in a 5 mg dosage.  The liquid is available in 5 mg/mL or 20 mg/mL.

According to the FDA, the brand name drug OxyContin is only available in tablet form.  As I said before, there are generic versions of oxycodone available in capsule form.
