you do realize that oxycontin contains exactly the same narcotic drug as percocet???? The ONLY difference is that oxycontin is a controlled release drug, meaning that part of the doseage is immediately released, with the remainder being released into your system in about 6 hours. But the narcotic drug is exactly the same in both: oxycodone. Actually, in some ways, percocet can be a more dangerous drug, since it is an oxycodone / acetimenophen combination, while oxycontin contains just the oxycodone. So many people get into trouble by ingesting too much tylenol, causing liver damage.
