I've taken oxycodone/acetaminophen before and it worked for the pain at that time. Now (years later) I pulled some muscles in my back and the doctor prescribed hydrocodone/acetaminophen (along with a muscle relaxer) and it doesn't seem to be working at all along with I feel a little sick to my stomach.
What is the difference between oxycodone/acetaminophen and hydrocodone/acetaminophen?

This question has also been asked and answered here: Vicodin vs Percocet: What's the difference?
Oxy+tylenol is not generic for percocet they are the active ingredients in percocet, and hydro+tylenol are the active ingredients in vicodin. Oxy is definitely stronger than hydro, but unless u have an allergy to oxy or hydro its the Tylenol that's upsetting your stomachs most likely because something around 1500 mg of tylenol is supposed to make u throw up.
oxycodone/acetaminophen is around 1.5 times stronger then hydrocodone/acetaminophen (depending on the dose). either one of them can upset someones stomach, just depends on the persons body chemistry.
Oxycodone Acetaminophen according to my Rx bottle is generic for Percocet. As for what the active ingredient of "oxycodone" vs "hydrocodon" I don't know what they mean or what the differences are. I would like to know myself.
I know I am having the exact same problem misty.Where it is starting to hurt my stomach from the vicoden but the oxycodone still feels like it doesn't work as good as the vicoden.Keep us updated!!:)
To the best of my knowledege, Oxycodone is the same as Oxycontin, and hyrdrocodone is the same as Vicodin, Oxycodone being far stronger for the pain than the Vicodin.
Just a little bit of FYI, when you come to this site at the very top it will list "Drugs from A to Z and you can look up most any drug you are interested in and it may save you a ton of time waiting for an answer.
Best of luck
