Customer: replied 11 months ago.
oxycodone contains tylenol. what about opana?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 11 months ago.

oxycodone doesn't contain tylenol

hydrocodone doesn't either

opana would be fine too

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
on the perscription bottle it states oxycodone-actaminoph 10-325. it is my understanding that actaminoph is tylenol.
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
you're a doctor and didn't know oxycodone and hydrocodone don't include acetaminophen?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
do contain
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 11 months ago.

That pill is called percocet. Percocet contains tylenol

Oxycodone can be taken by itself and has no tylenol

I'm a doctor and I know that. ;)
