Hello, Todd! How are you? I'm sorry about your confusion and I'm happy to help clear it up for you.

Oxycontin contains the opiate Oxycodone in a time released formulation.

However, Percocet contains Oxycodone coupled with Acetaminophen.

Oxycodone is also available as a regular release formulation and an instant release, called Roxicodone and Oxy IR, respectively.

The FDA lists this as being a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

Is there anything else I can help with?

I have been prescribed Belbuca 150 mcgs to take in addition to Percocet 10/325 tid. Should this provide adequate pain control for severe chronic pain? I didn't think the Belbuca was doing much. Not sure how it helps pain if it's used to help with withdrawals. Any insights?Thank you!
