Endocet is in a class of drugs called narcotic analgesics. This medication is a combination of a narcotic (oxycodone) and a non-narcotic (acetaminophen) used to relieve moderate to severe pain. Acetaminophen comes as a tablet, chewable tablet, capsule, suspension or solution, drops, extended-release tablet, and orally disintegrating tablet (tablet that dissolves quickly in the mouth), to take by mouth, with or without food. Oxycodone works by binding to opioid receptors in the brain and spinal cord, and acetaminophen decreases the formation of prostaglandins, therefore relieving pain. Acetaminophen also comes as a suppository to use rectally. Acetaminophen is available without a prescription, but your doctor may prescribe acetaminophen to treat certain conditions. Acetaminophen may also be used in combination with aspirin and caffeine to relieve the pain associated with migraine headache.
