Percocet Drug Class

Percocet® (oxycodone/APAP) is a prescription narcotic pain medicine licensed for the treatment of moderate to moderately severe pain. Although it is commonly used for treating short-term pain (such as pain due to a surgery, injury, or dental procedure), Percocet can also be used to treat migraines, chronic pain, or other types of recurring or long-term conditions that cause pain.
As part of the narcotic drug class, Percocet has significant abuse potential. It can cause both physical and psychological dependence, and is often used inappropriately (for non-medical reasons). Percocet is classified as a Schedule II controlled substance, which means that special laws and regulations control its sale and use.
