Thanks for your query.

Percocet contains a combination of acetaminophen and oxycodone. Oxycodone is in a group of drugs called narcotic pain relievers. Acetaminophen is a less potent pain reliever that increases the effects of oxycodone.

Percocet starts acting with in 10 to 15 minutes of consuming tablet. So pain reduction starts by 15 minutes of consuming tablets.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
