Can you mix percocet and acetaminophen?
....really? Percocet is a mixture of two different active ingredients. Oxycodone and Tylenol. Tylenol is also known as acetaminophen. So there is already acetaminophen in percocet. There is no reason to take MORE Tylenol. However, if you really feel the need it won't hurt to take a Tylenol or two with your prescription. You need to be careful though, too much Tylenol is known to cause liver damage. Keep it reasonable and you will be fine.
You shouldn't. It intensifies the high and is very harmful on the liver. If you do it regularly, the comedown intensifies and you are more likely to use it every time with alcohol. Percocet contains acetaminophen and you should not mix it with alcohol. It will damage your liver meaning you will never be able to drink again and you may possibly die.
oxycodone is the base pain killing ingredient in percocet, percocet = oxycodone and acetaminophen there for if same "mg" of oxycodone instant release = same "mg" in percocet, all things being equal there is no difference. (excluding the acetaminophen). adding the effects of the acetaminophen with the same mg of oxycodone, then the percocets would be technically a little stronger in natural pain relief. The narcotic in both medications is the oxycodone, the only difference…
Hydrocodone is not percocet. Percocet is a combination oxycodone and acetaminophen. Hydrocodone is the active ingredient in brand name Vicodin, which also has acetaminophen in it. The difference is that oxycodone is a little more potent than hydrocodone, but both are very effective for treatment of pain.
No. These are two very similar drugs. You will be mixing two "synthetic codeines" together and doubling you dose of acetaminophen. Either way the potiential for overdosing is big. Additionally, there is no reason to. The active ingredient in Percocet is oxycodone and the active ingredient in Lorcet is hydrocodone. Either one should be able to handle your pain problem alone.
