    Percodan is the same as percocet except that percodan has ASA in it while percocet has tylenol.That's the only difference between the two....Dave

    ASA is the pharmaceutical reference to Aspirin.

    So, as Dave said, that is the only difference, Percodan contains Aspirin and Oxycodone and Percocet contains Acetaminophen and Oxycodone.

    For some people, the Aspirin works better for them with the Oxy to relieve their pain, and for some people the Acetaminophen. Sometimes it also depends on other body conditions, like liver or kidney function or problems, so that can have an effect on what the doc prescribes. There are also some new formulations that use Ibuprofen.



    My information is not guaranteed correct. I do not get them right all the time, but I do enjoy the hunt~

    Percodan always worked better for me but that was in the 70s. I don't know if they've changed the formulation or not other than the aspirin vs. Tylenol. Ibuprofen tears my stomach up. The aspirin didn't.
