The Term OXY is probably one of the most used here in the forums when the topic centers around pain medication.
Many times there is a lot of confusion regarding this medication and others that start with OXY.....
Oxycodone APAP contains tylenol [/u] and is marketed under the names of Percocet, Roxicet, Tylox, Endocet
Oxycodone HCL (Hydrochloride) [u] does NOT contain tylenol[/u]
That can come in the format of:
Oxycontin ER (Extended Relief) 10,20,40,80 and at one time 160mg
Oxycodone IR (Immediate Relief) 5mg- Capsules 5,15,20mg-Tablets ** Latest updated per RiteAid and Hospital Pharmacy
Another name that comes up so often and should not be confused is Hydrocodone
which [u] does contain tylenol (acetaminophen)
This is marketed under the names:
Anexsia, Dolorex Forte, Hycet, Liquicet, Lorcet, Maxidone, Norco, Polygesic, Stagesic, Vicodin, Xodol, Zydone
This can all get confusing, especially when you see a prescription written and then you see what is on the pill bottle.
Bottom line the proper source for all information regarding medications is with your pharmacist and your doctor.
