Acetaminophen with Oxycodone is a generic for Percocet, a narcotic pain reliever.

If you are asking if it gets dangerous with time, then the answer is no.

It does, however, lose effectiveness and will not work as well as it did when it was new.

That said, have you seen a doctor for your fingers and what have they suggested you use?
