maso has given a great answer.
I'll boil it down to one sentence; hydrocodone has tylenol in it, oxycodone does not, it is narcotic ONLY.
Best wishes,

You are wrong. Perks are usually percribed with Ty in it. But you can also get Perks without the Ty in it too . I take 5mg Perks/325 Ty. So to say Perks only have Oxycodone in it no Ty has no idea what they are talking about. Also. You have to take 1.5. #4 pills to = 1- 5mg /325 perks

tylenol with Codeine #3 is basically just tylenol with the narcotic Codeine in it and it can come in different strengths. Codeine is actually a natural opiate. Oxycodone can come with tylenol too and that is Percocet, endocet, Roxicet, and a few other names that I can't remember right now, Oxycodone is actually a synthetic opiate, but it still comes from Opium. Hydrocodone also comes with Tylenol and the brand name is Vicodin and it too is a Synthetic. bottom line is they are all narcotic pain meds and they can be used to treat other conditions. I do know that some people who are allergic to codeine, Myself included, can often take Oxycodone and Hydrocodone with no problems. Hope this helps!

I am allergic to hydrocodone or any derivative of it. It make me super sick and causes me to puke A LOT! So the drs tried the Percocet/ oxycodone and I don't get sick from it. It has to do with the different ways they process them that cause my reaction the dr said

tylenol gives me horrendous bloating & gas; contrary to other answers, hydrocone IS available without tylenol as that's what i was prescribed when i complained about the effects of the tylenol

I am also allergic to codeine. I needed to know if I could take the oxycodone safely. Your post completely answered my concerns. Thank you!
