What Does Percocet Treat?

Percocet® (oxycodone/APAP) is a popular narcotic pain medication. Many people may wonder, "What does it treat specifically?" Percocet is approved for the treatment of moderate to moderately severe pain. It is commonly used to treat short-term pain due to a surgery, dental procedure, or injury. Percocet is also sometimes used to treat migraines, chronic pain, or other types of recurring or long-term conditions that cause pain.
On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend Percocet for something other than pain relief. Off-label Percocet uses include the treatment of insomnia and coughing. Although Percocet may be effective for these conditions, most healthcare professionals will not prescribe the narcotic for such uses, as there are more appropriate medications available to treat coughing or insomnia.
