Narcotic combination: Percocet is oxycodone and Tylenol (acetaminophen). Oxycontin is a long-acting form of oxycodone, which is used to reduce the need to take short-acting Percocet. Using this combination, Oxycontin is taken twice per day every day. Percocet is taken only as needed for break-through pain that "breaks through" the treatment with Oxycontin, and should not be taken regularly but only when pain is present.
