Brief Answer:
Not in the screening urine test

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Welcome and thanks for your query.
Percocet contains oxycodone which is metabolized and excreted similar to hydrocodone. The screening urine test looks at codeine and morphine and metabolites. So both will be detected. Blood tests and special urine tests can differentiate between the two.
