That is an interesting question. Both have oxycodone as their main drug. Endocet has less of it but it does have 325 mgs. of acetaminophen - which is basically a booster for the oxycodone. However, since oxycodone 15mgs has about 50% more oxycodone than the endocet and oxycodone is by far the stronger drug, I would think the oxycodone 15mgs is stronger.

endocets are weak generic for oxycodone, if you are in real pain i would avoid endocet

they do nothing. youre better off with motrin 800mg.  oxycodone 15mg are a green

little pill with immidete release within 45min and they work for about 3 to 4hrs especially if ya drink coffee or tea with them
