Does Percocet contain codeine?

Answer

Percocet does not contain codeine, according to Drugs.com. Percocet is a combination of acetaminophen and oxycodone. The combination is also sold as Endocet, Primlev, Roxicet and Xartemis XR.

Doctors prescribe Percocet for relief of pain that is moderate to severe. Drugs.com states that the acetaminophen in Percocet has little potency relative to the opioid oxycodone, but that it improves the efficacy of the opioid drug. Percocet poses health risks. Acetaminophen is capable of causing liver damage when taken in large quantities, while oxycodone has an addiction risk. No patient should share the medication with others, especially not with anyone with a history of drug addiction or abuse.
