They are both oxycodone which is the opiate that kills pain in these pills. Oxycontin is a sustained release formula of oxycodone and has no tylenol.
Percocet is quick relaese oxycodone alone with caffine and tylenol and other buffers.
Percocet should only be used for acute pain ie: broken bones, post-op pain ect. A month should be the longest if you are taking it daily.
Oxycontin should be used for chronic pain were a opiate painkiller is need on a daily basis... Dave
