325 milligrams of acetaminophen is a low theraputic dose. The FDA suggests taking no more than 4 grams in a 24-hour day. 4 grams is equal to 4,000 milligrams. Trust me, 325 milligrams is next to nothing, assuming you aren't allergic to it. And 5 milligrams of oxycodone, in my opinion, is a threshhold dose. You will probably ask yourself "am I really feeling it or am I making it up" with only 5 milligrams. If you are in pain, however, 5 milligrams will be effective in reducing it.
It sounds to me like you might want to do a bit of reading on common pharmaceuticals before you start swallowing pills. Acetaminophen knowledge is pretty much a must-have for anyone swallowing anything containing the drug. Do your research.
SWIY should do a search for cold water extraction (swim knows that someone had to say it...)
With this easy process involving only some water, a microwave, and a fridge, swiy can remove the acetaminophen, leaving only the oxycodone behind. 10-15 mg of oxycodone is a good starting dose, and after doing the extraction swiy's liver will be pretty safe. This way swiy won't even have to worry about the acetaminophen (although 325mg in a pill isn't that much).

Reason: Full and correct substitution of abbreviated drug name.
^^^you probably wouldn't. to swim's knowledge that's the minimum amount that has to be present in a pill in order to still make it available as oxycodone. if there were none, you'd be left with pure oxycodone, and they'd have to put a time release on it to still make it legal.

the amount of acetaminophen (tylenol) is nothing to be concerned about.
about 500 mg of it is found in each tylenol and people usually take 2 or 3 of those to relieve pain. you would have to REALLY take a lot of tylenols (or endocets for that matter) to worry about acetaminophen overdose. well of course the main ingredient for endo's (oxycodone) is stronger so taking a lot of these can be lethal, but if you took like 3 or 4... you will be fine. the ingredients in the endo's CAN be dangerous if you take a lot or if you are a long time user and can eventually cause liver damage over time, but i wouldn't worry about it if you are being prescribed to 1 or 2 scripts, or you can talk to your doctor about getting a narcotic painkiller without acetaminophen so it can cause LESS liver damage. if you are a long time user. but other than that you really cannot get less tylenol than that in a percocet but sometimes it is replaced by aspirin (percodan).
