Symptoms will start in 12 to 24 hours from the last dose. They usually peak at 48 to 72 hours and then lessen. The total time for Percocet withdrawal to be completed varies somewhat depending on the level of tolerance built up.
For those addicted, psychological symptoms will outlast the physical symptoms. There is a crossover from physical symptoms to psychological - for instance, anxiety and depression. Drug seeking and an inability to focus, except on obtaining more is considered a psychological symptom, but it is driven by physical withdrawal.

The standard detox for Percocet at an inpatient drug treatment facility would last about a week. Again, this only addresses the physical dependence. If someone is truly addicted to narcotics, the treatment can be life-long. Addicts are considered to be in remission or recovery, not cured.
The manufacturer recommends that anyone who has been taking Percocet regularly (four times daily) for “more than a few weeks” should be weaned off the drug to prevent Percocet withdrawal symptoms. The tapering off period is two weeks, with a gradual decrease of dosage as recommended by a physician.
The severity of the symptoms depends on how long someone has been using (Percocet or a similar narcotic) and how high their daily dose is. Because the addictive ingredient in Percocet (oxycodone and acetaminophen) is related to morphine, the symptoms of Percocet withdrawal are similar.
Regular use of any opioid will create a physical dependence over time.
