Percocet® (oxycodone/APAP) is a prescription narcotic pain reliever that has a significant potential for abuse. In an effort to find it at a lower price, many people will search online sources. Some Web sites offer to provide a prescription for Percocet after a "consultation," usually consisting of a short questionnaire. This is not considered a legitimate prescription, however, and no legitimate pharmacy would fill such prescriptions.
Legitimate pharmacies will not sell Percocet without a prescription. Because you can be assured that you are getting the "real thing" (not a counterfeit or expired medication) only from a legitimate pharmacy, buying this drug without a prescription increases your risk of getting a substandard or dangerous product.
Some people may also try to buy Percocet cheaply from someone who has access to the drug. However, it is illegal to buy Percocet without a prescription, and it is illegal to sell or give your Percocet to someone else. Doing either of these things is against federal (and most state) laws, and you can be prosecuted under both.
