Percocet® (oxycodone/APAP) is a prescription narcotic drug often used to relieve moderate to moderately severe pain. It comes in tablet form and is available in a number of strengths, including:
 
  • 2.5/325 mg Percocet tablets (2.5 mg of oxycodone hydrochloride and 325 mg of acetaminophen)
  • 5/325 mg Percocet tablets (5 mg of oxycodone hydrochloride and 325 mg of acetaminophen)

The recommended dose for the lowest strength (Percocet 2.5/325 mg) is one or two tablets, taken every six hours as needed for pain. For all the other strengths, the recommended dose is one tablet.
 
Be careful not to exceed the maximum recommended daily dose of Percocet, as this could lead to overdose symptoms or to poisoning from the acetaminophen component, which can cause liver failure. You should take no more than eight of the 7.5 mg/500 mg tablets in one day.
