Welcome Steve, You will find this site to be very helpful. Best yet there are a lot of loving, caring and self educated people on here who are willing to be there for you, regardless of your issues.
To answer your question. Oxycodone 5/325 APAP contains 5mg of oxycodone and 325mg of acetaminophen (tylenol). APAP is an abbreviation of acetyl-para-aminophenol - the chemical name of acetaminophen.

Hi pampgh, I don't really understand your answer. Oxycodone w/APAP is generic for percocet 5 (meaning 5 mgs. of oxy) and yes APAP is for acetaminophen. Now this is where you lost me propoxyphene is generic for Darvon. That would mean if he had a script for Darvocet, that would be propoxyphene w/APAP (acetaminophen) Thanks Fall Queen
