maso has given a great answer.
I'll boil it down to one sentence; hydrocodone has tylenol in it, oxycodone does not, it is narcotic ONLY.

tylenol with Codeine #3 is basically just tylenol with the narcotic Codeine in it and it can come in different strengths. Codeine is actually a natural opiate. Oxycodone can come with tylenol too and that is Percocet, endocet, Roxicet, and a few other names that I can't remember right now, Oxycodone is actually a synthetic opiate, but it still comes from Opium. Hydrocodone also comes with Tylenol and the brand name is Vicodin and it too is a Synthetic. bottom line is they are all narcotic pain meds and they can be used to treat other conditions. I do know that some people who are allergic to codeine, Myself included, can often take Oxycodone and Hydrocodone with no problems. Hope this helps!
