What is the difference between the pain med Ic Oxycodone HCL narcotic analgesic and Ic Oxycodone HCL non-narcotic analgesic?
Oxycodone is a narcotic. It is derived from thebaine, an alkaloid of opium. There is no non-narcotic preparation that contains oxycodone. Perocet is a medicine that contains both oxycodone and acetaminophen (Tylenol). So there are meds that are joined with oxycodone that are non-narcotic. But anything that has oxycodone in it is a narcotic.
