What is Magnacet?

Magnacet is a pain medication prescribed for moderate to moderately severe pain. It contains two active ingredients, the narcotic pain reliever oxycodone and acetaminophen, a less potent pain reliever. By combining these drugs, Magnacet can use a lower dose of each to provide better pain relief. Used in combination, these drugs provide better pain relief at a lower dose than would otherwise be necessary, which reduces the risk for side effects.
