Equal Amount: Percocet 10 contains 10 mg of oxycodone and usually 325 mg of actaminophen and roxicodone 10 mg contains 10 mg of oxycodone.

They are the same: Oxicodone is the opiate in Percocet and roxicodone (oxycodone). They are equal in dosing. However, your doctor should have told you this when it was prescribed, and if not prescribed to you then you should seek help for taking opiates illicitly. Be well.
