They both come from the same family
To Balbanese's great answer, I will add this, as a just in case. If you are in pain management, are trying for a job or have to drug test for work, or on probation, both these meds are considered in the broad family or opiates or opoids, BUT, since they are 2 different opiates, they will test more specifically as different opiates. Most people do find more relief from the percocet( oxycodone and acetaminophen) rather than the loracet( hydrocodone and acetaminophen) and the percs are considered by most, to be the stronger of the 2, although they may match the opiate amount in mg to mg. if you are on loracet, and have taken a few percocets, because you ran out of didn't have them with you, on today's drugs screens, you will test positive for 2 separate opiates and it will show a postive for hydro and OxyContin. If your dr has just switched you from loracet to percocet, they may feel a bit stronger to you. Patti
