Lorcet and percocet are two different drugs. They are both opioid pain killers mixed with acetaminophen which is a non-opioid pain killer. There is where the similarities end. Lorcet is hydrocodone and Percocet is oxycodone. Hydrocodone is a Schedule 3 opioid and Percocet is a Schedule 2. this basically means that Percocet has a higher incidence of dependency and misuse potential. Oxycodone is considered a stronger drug than hydrocodone (although some people disagree with that). Lorcet can be refilled and also called into a pharmacy. Percocet can not be refilled and you must take a hard copy script to the pharmacy each fill. They do not accept phoned in prescriptions on Percocet.
