Pain medication: There is oxycodone which has no Tylenol (acetaminophen). There should be zero effect on the liver in the absence of Tylenol (acetaminophen). A more important question would be why are you in so much pain that you require narcotic medication and why was your liver unable to tolerate a small amount of Tylenol (acetaminophen) that is in Percocet?
