Overview Information on Percocet
Pharmacist Tip
Percocet may be taken with or without food, but taking it with food may decrease nausea.     
Percocet® is a medicine that contains a combination of acetaminophen and oxycodone. Percocet is the combination of the opioid (or narcotic) medicine oxycodone and the nonnarcotic medicine acetaminophen. Your doctor may have given you Percocet to treat your pain that is moderate or moderately severe.

The combination of the two medicines come as the brand names Endocet®, Magnacet®, Primlev, Roxicet, and Xolox®.

Opioids, such as oxycodone in Percocet, change how the body feels and responds to pain by blocking the transmission of pain messages to the brain. Acetaminophen elevates the body's pain threshold and reduces fever.
