There aren't any: Let me explain - "Cet or cette" at the end of medications means it contains acetaminophen or tylenol. The active opiate in the medication is Oxycodone, and oxycodone comes without tylenol in both brand-name and generic versions, including Roxicet, which comes in 5, 10, 15 and 30 mg strengths. It also comes in sustained release long-acting versions in doses ranging from 10mg - 80 mg. ...Read more

Tylenol within labeled limits is safe for most people. Taking more can kill. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Novoprofen is plain ibuprofen, same thing that is in Motrin and many other brands. Depends on what you mean by "stronger" to some extent. If you had inflammation, like a sprained ankle, Ibuprofen is likely to reduce that inflammation over time far more than tylenol (acetaminophen) and oxycodone. However, the oxycodone will have more effects on immediately reducing pain than Ibuprofen does. Also has more risks. ...Read more
