    is it true that a 30mg roxicet is equivalent to six 5/325mg percocets? or that they are entirely different pain meds.

    Not exactly.  First of all I don't believe Roxicet comes in 30 mg tablets.  Are you sure you don't mean Roxicodone?  Roxicodone is just a brand name for oxycodone.  Percocet is a combination of oxycodone and acetaminophen.  Percocet 5/325 is 5 mg oxycodone and 325 mg acetaminophen.  Although a Roxicodone 30 mg tablet would have the same amount of oxycodone in it as six Percocet 5/325s, taking six Percocets would give you way more acetaminophen than is safe. 

     

    I hope that helped and I didn't confuse you.

    Hi ' Yes 30 mg of roxicet and 6 percocet are exactly

    the same on the pain killer oxycodone but I think the roxicet has a lot

    less tylenol than the 6 percocets. I would ask for 30 mg oxycodone I.R or

    6 of the 5 mg oxycodone as you do not have too deal with all the buff from

    tylenol and it is cleaner as the tylenol can mess you up if you take this

    medication daily!!!    Take care always' Bill

    Once again, im not sure, but I believe roxicet and percocet are the same drug, just different brands. As far as I know, 10 mg. of either is as high as they go before becoming just straight oxycodone.

     

    Is it possible you got roxicet confused with roxicodone, roxicodone being straight oxycodone, without the tylenol. Roxicodone is not Oxycontin, because it is immediate release, as where Oxycontin is time released. Hope I helped?
