No, percoet contains a narcotic and acetominophen, and it does NOT increase your white count.

I have been taking the percocet for a bak injury and am also taking xanax bor anxiety could the combination of the two give a high white blood cell count?
Expert:  Dr. Owen replied 7 years ago.
No, the combination of xanax and percocet would not increase the white count - a white count usually increases for infections, and sometimes for disease processes such as leukemia, and also some drugs, but not for the 2 medications you just named.
