Are percocet 30 and oxycontin the same thing
The answer to your question is no they are not the same Oxycontin is a much strong drug then Percocet. Percocet is actually a mix of ibuprofen and Oxycodone. They do make 30mg Oxycodone but the only difference between the two is percocet is Oxycodone and ibuprofen together in a pill form.
Percocet is oxycodone and acetominophen (tylenol) and comes in the following dosages:
Maximal Daily Dose
Percocet 2.5 mg/325 mg
Percocet 5 mg/325 mg
Percocet 7.5 mg/325 mg
Percocet 7.5 mg/500 mg
Percocet 10 mg/325 mg
Percocet 10 mg/650 mg
The first number is the amount of oxycodone while the second number is the amount of acetominophen.
Oxycontin is oxycodone without the acetominophen and comes in a controlled release formula ranging from 10 to 80 mgs. There is a 30mg oxycontin.
Hope this helps,
First of all, percocet is oxycodone and acetaminophen and as Laurie's answer shows it comes in those doses on her post. Now there are immediate release forms of oxycodone (name brand Roxicodone and OxyIR, among others) that come in 5mg, 15mg and 30mg doses that do not contain acetaminophen-only oxycodone. These are NOT the same as OxyContin which is a slow release form of oxycodone These come in:
OxyContin® (oxycodone hydrochloride) Controlled-Release Tablets 10 mg 15 mg 20 mg 30 mg 40 mg 60 mg* 80 mg* 160 mg*. I hope this clears things up for everyone!
