The Alvogen Oxycodone is strictly Oxycodone. The dose listed is for Oxycodone which is an immediate release.
Percocet is a combination drug. It is Oxycodone with acetaminophen (Tylenol) and they work well together. In attempting to describe the effect I’d say the Acetaminophen relaxes you and the Oxycodone is strictly for pain relief.
I cannot compare because I don’t have your dosages.
The dose should appear next to the name. It may read 5/325. In this case you have 5mg of Oxycodone and 325mg of Acetaminophen.
If your dose of Alvogen Oxycodone is 5mg than both are equal.
If it’s 20mg than it’s 4 times stronger than Percocet.
Acetaminophen is found in many OTC meds especially sleeping aides. You need to gather all your meds and write down how much Acetaminophen you are taking in total for a 24 hour period.
Acetaminophen can cause liver damage if you are taking 4 grams or more in 24 hours.
I hope I explained clearly enough.
