Norco contain the medicines hydrocodone and acetominophen while the oxycodone is the medicine oxycodone and possibly acetominophen depending on the formula you have. Oxycodone and hydrocodone are very similar except that oxycodone is considered a stronger pain med than the hydrocodone. Percocet is oxycodone with acetominophen.
So to answer your question the oxycodone is consider a stronger pain med than the Norco.
Hope this helps,

Norco is Hydrocodone and Acetaminophen. Oxycodone could be the time released form, mine are prescribed Percocet, but they are filled Endocet, which are Oxycodone with Acetaminophen. They have less acetaminophen, but the narcotic is stronger in my opinion. Not exactly sure about labeled Oxycodone. Sure someone else with more knowledge will answer you soon.
