Basically, yes. Percocet is a combination of oxycodone

hydrochloride and acetaminophen (Tylenolâ„¢). Morphine, like

oxycodone, is in the opioid family.

Addition by Echo646: Morphine is stronger than percocet,

however, and it can be more addictive and more likely to cause

dependence, so even more care should be used when taking morphine.

Every other opioid is judged by how well they treat pain compared

to morphine.
