Meperitab is the oral form of demerol. It works very well for pain when given by injection, but not nearly as well by mouth. Oxycodone/APAP 5/325 is also known as Percocet. For most people, it works better for pain. However, each person is very different, and what works for one won't work for another. The only way to know for yourself is to try each. One may work great and the other may have no effect, but only by trying them will you know. Best regards.
