Found tiny bits of orange pill broken in purse into a bottle. Is this Percoset ?

I think my daughter is on Percoset. She is a adult living with me. She was hooked on Percoset years ago. I had a feeling she was on something. I found tiny bits and pieces of orange pills broken in her purse in a bottle. Could this be Percoset? I didn t have time to look for a logo. And they were broken up so I don t think I could have found a logo. Thanks.

Hello debidavis
By the information you have given it is very difficult to ascertain definitely whether she is taking percoset or not. Usually percoset or oxycodon is a drug of opioid group and it has been used in cough formulations and in pain medications.
Usual strengths prescribed by doctors are not orange colored but if you want to clearly assured then you have to investigate more.
Other option is to talk with her directly as she is your child and you can talk with her, talking always help.
It is possible that she can easily clarify your doubt.
thanks, hope I tried to clear your doubt.
take care
