What is Percocet?

Percocet (also known as Percs, Paulas, Roxicotten, Roxi's, Blue dynamite, & 512's) is a legal compound painkiller commonly prescribed to relieve moderate to severe short-term pain. The main ingredient in Percocet is oxycodone, a Schedule II narcotic analgesic which is derived from opium and utilized for its calming effects and pain relief. The other major ingredient is paracetamol (also known as acetaminophen) which is more commonly used as the over-the-counter pain and fever reducer Tylenol.
