Percocet came in the market in mid 1990. Since then, doctors have been routinely prescribing the drug for the management of pain ranging in intensity from moderate to severe. It is an effective drug that is commonly used for relieving the pain after surgeries, injuries or the dental procedures. The drug is composed of two active ingredients, Oxycodone, and acetaminophen. It is legally available in the United States as a prescription drug. The addictive property of Oxycodone has brought its name on the list of widely abused prescription medications. Similar to other opiates, higher doses of the drug produce the euphoric effects, which makes the person fall in the habit of continuous misuse. The abuse can prove to be very harmful to the individual.
