What is the differance between oxycodone/Percocet and oxycontin?

Oxycontin is oxycodone without tylenol. It usually is an extended release medication. Percocet (oxycodone/tylenol) and percodan (oxycodone/aspirin) are usually prescribed as an immediate release form pain medication. So the main difference is no additional pain agents added and oxycontin is released slowly into the system. I think I have the main differences correct. Good luck to you. chris

It is my understanding that oxycontin is stronger than percocet, which only contains oxycodone + acedaminifan. Your pharmacist could probably give you more specifics. Tige
