Can someone tell me if pentazocine is even close to a percocet?

In brief: DEA Schedule 4 vs 2

Pentazocine is a schedule 4 analgesic while Percocet is a schedule 2.
In my experience Percocet is generally more effective in severe pain.

In brief: Pentazocine

Not similar to Percocet chemically but the pain relief from the two is similar.
