  • oxycodone is a generic for percoset and has both narcotic and acetaminophen and oxycontin is also reffered as hillbilly heroin it's as strong as morphine and usually given for cronic pain and cancer. The first is used for surgery pain, abcess and stuff like that. And both are highly addictive and if you breastfeed it can hurt the baby.

  • I don't know. I just know that Oxycontin can be very addictive. Check with your physician for a more thorough explanation.
