I take 10/325 Percocets. 1 1/2 every 4 hours. So basically 9 within a 24 hour time frame and was now prescribed 20 mg. oxycontins. How does this medicine work? Do I take it with my Percocet or do I have to wait for a while before taking my Percocets? I don't want to overdose, it scares me. I am thinking that I should take one Oxy at night before bed and one when I wake up and the rest of the day, just take my percocets. Is this what I am suppose to do. And what is this time released, how long does it really last?
oxycontin and percocet is the same medication, oxycontin has no tylenol in it, percocet has tylenol. so no, dont take it together, drs prescribe oxycontin because for some the pain medication minus the tylenol helps better with the pain, i was given that and prefer the percocet with tylenol. and time release i believe is slow acting, where it stays in your system longer, i think... leanne
