Percocet contains paracetamol also along with oxycodone.

if it suited you more then may take Paracetamol tabs 500 mg separately with present medication.

Sometimes if you have been on long time course of percocet, paracetamol may cause liver toxicity and so beware , trust your physician's choice or else Liver function tests may be done along with serum creatinine if both normal, then your liver, kidney are safe and you may use paracetamol but with docs permission
