Q: Does Percocet contain codeine?

I am allergic to codeine and a friend said percocet contained codeine.  Just needed to know because I can not take many things to relieve pain.

NO it DOES NOT contain any codiene!  It is oxycodone and acetemetiphine! PROMISE! I am also allergic to codiene and I take 6 percocet 10 a day with no reactions!
