What is Percocet?
Percocet is the brand name for acetaminophen and oxycodone and is a powerful narcotic used to treat moderate to severe pain. The synthetic opioid is one of the most commonly prescribed painkillers. Percocet is available in capsules and tablets. Adults should not take more than 4 grams (4,000 mg) of acetaminophen in a 24-hour period as it can cause liver damage. The combination of narcotic properties in Percocet works by binding to opioid receptors in the brain and spinal cord. The analgesic component reduces pain.
Percocet® relieves moderate to severe pain and may also be used to treat other conditions determined by your healthcare professional. Also known as Oxycodone, Percocet® is in a group of drugs called narcotic pain relievers.
Percocet ® is a combination of an analgesic, colloquially known as a painkiller, an antipyretic, a drug used to lower the body’s temperature and a narcotic, a drug used primarily to induce sleep. The narcotic works by binding to the opiod receptor found in the brain and spinal cord, while the analgesic/antipyretic decreases the formation of specific chemicals which greatly reduce the pain threshold.
Some medications can interact with Percocet and diminish its effectiveness or cause difficult breathing and sedation. Alcohol, tranquilizers and sleeping pills should be avoided while taking Percocet. Others who should avoid taking it include those who are allergic to any ingredient in Percocet, those with severe diarrhea due to antibiotic use and those taking naltrexone or sodium oxybate (GHB). It is not recommended for children and caution should be taken by elderly users, as they may be more sensitive to the side effects.

Narcotics such as Percocet, Darvocet, OxyContin and Heroin are highly addictive. Percocet can be habit-forming and lead to dependence if used at high doses for long periods of time.
Millions of people worldwide suffer from chronic pain. Users can develop a tolerance, causing them to take more in the pursuit of pain relief. Some of those who become addicted choose to stay that way out of fear of withdrawal and the return of pain.
