Percocet is a combination of oxycodone and acetaminophen.  What you're taking is 10mg of oxycodone and 325mg of acetaminophen.  Although that's the maximum amount of oxycodone found in Percocet or any other drug that mixes oxycodone and acetaminophen, there are a number of forms of oxycodone that come in much higher dosages.  The largest dosage I've seen for a single tablet is 80mg.

TO MY UNDERSTANDING-- THAT IS THE STRONGEST OF THE PERCOCET. I'M ALSO ON IT.MY PAIN MANAGEMENT DRS' ALSO HAVE ME ON MORHINE 100mg. IF UR PAIN IS  BAD ENOUGH THEY WILL GIVE IT 2 U. JUST MAKE SURE 2 ASK ABOUT ALL THE SIDE EFFECTS. AND IF IT WILL B OK WITH UR OTHER MEDS.
