Percasets

Were you looking for information about Percocet? Percasets is a common misspelling of Percocet.
 
Percocet® is a prescription drug used to treat pain. It is actually made up of two medications -- acetaminophen and oxycodone hydrochloride. Oxycodone is a semi-synthetic narcotic opioid pain reliever. It is chemically related to codeine. Acetaminophen is a pain reliever and fever reducer commonly found in non-prescription medications such as Tylenol®. Combining the two makes both medications more effective at relieving pain and may limit the abuse potential of oxycodone.
