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 10's are stronger. Percocet contain oxycodone (a narcotic) and paracetamol (Tylenol). The smaller number (if you see 5/325 or similar) in the dosage is the amount of oxycodone, in milligrams. The larger number would be the amount of paracetamol in milligrams.
