Both drugs contain the opioid pain reliever oxycodone 5mg but Percocet also contains 325mg of acetaminophen along with the oxycodone. The oxycodone HCL is oxycodone alone.
To be completely clear, Oxycodone HCL is an opioid pain reliever. Percocet is a specific trade name for a tablet that contains Oxycodone HCL and Acetaminophen (trade name: Tylenol) in 2.5/325, 5/325, 7.5/325, and 10/325 proportions (mg oxycodone HCL/mg Acetaminophen).
Is oxycodone HCL 5 The same as percoets
I know its 5 years too late but since people have recently posted I just have to say that tracitropics was so ignorant and wrong in her response. I think the question has been answered sufficiently since then; however, I will add, and I'm assuming that everyone who is taking some form of these drugs, whether it is oxy hcl or oxy/apap, has a prescription and hence a legal right to be taking these meds. So if ever in doubt, instead of consulting a forum of amateurs, and I include myself, why not just call the pharmacy to query the pharmacist? LOL, it just seems like the safest and fastest way to get the correct info.
What works better roxy 5 mg or Percocet5
The answer to your question is Percocet is a hybrid drug that is combined with acetaminophen, which is the active ingredient in Tylenol, whereas Oxycodone HCL is NOT!
