I don't know why Percocet is C-II (the same as plain oxycodone). The "oxy-" synthetic opioids are supposed to be very euphoric, though (oxymorphone more than oxycodone), so maybe that's it.
I don't like to discuss personal stuff on public forums, but pharmacology and psychiatric medicine are interests of mine. I first became interested when I read _Listening to Prozac_. (That was more than a decade ago, when it first came out -- I was only about 12 or 13 years old, I think. Now I'm studying this and related material in school.)

I recommend it.
