The strongest Percocet prescribed is Percocet 10/650.

Percocet pills are white, oval-shaped tablets that are available in 2.5, 5, 7.5, and 10-milligram strengths of oxycodone with 325, 650, or 700 milligrams of acetaminophen; the strength of each drug will be listed on the prescription as 2.5/325. 7.5/650, etc.

Percocet is the brande name for Oxycodone.

Oxycodone is a semi-synthetic narcotic analgesic which historically has been a popular drug of abuse among the narcotic abusing population.

Oxycodone is synthesized from thebaine, a constituent of the poppy plant.

Also oxycodone is more potent than hydrocodone.

This means that it takes less oxycodone to produce the same effects as hydrocodone.

Oxycodone is also more likely to be abused than hydrocodone because it produces stronger effects.

This also means that oxycodone has a higher risk of overdose.

Standard oxycodone takes 30 to 60 minutes to work, but this wears off after 4 to 6 hours.

Slow-release oxycodone can take 1 to 2 days to work fully, but the pain relief will last longer.

Oxycodone and acetaminophen combination can cause serious unwanted effects or fatal overdose if taken by children, pets, or adults who are not used to strong narcotic pain medicines.
