    Is there another name for Percocet, other than Oxycodone?

    Found a pill capsule on the bathroom closet floor.  Looks old, but I can still detect the color.  The color is burgandy and the writing on the capsule is v 4206.  I know I have never been prescribed the name "Oxycodone" , but I was prescribed "Percocet" about a year ago.

    Just curious if this is a percocet.  Thanks!

    Percocet, Qxydocodone, Rocicet and Endocet are all forms of the same drug so. yes, while you were prescribed Percocet you were also taking oxycodone.

    A drug called methocarbamol has the imprint 4026  on it but it doesn't appear to have a burgundy color.

    It is however used to relieve muscle pain.
