Percocet Addiction Treatment

Percocet: An Opioid Coated Tylenol

sprout_fl_percocet_treatmentPercocet is a common painkiller and anti-inflammatory. It contains two different drugs; one that’s for the most part harmless and the other is one of the most addictive synthetic opiates. It is essentially acetaminophen (what Tylenol is made of) coated with Oxycodone (an opioid with similar effects to morphine, heroin, and codeine). The Oxycodone is paired with acetaminophen because of the complementary anti-inflammatory effects that it has, but this doesn’t make the Oxycodone any less dangerous or addictive.

Oxycodone

Regardless of what it is combined with, Oxycodone is a habit forming drug. It works by blocking the brain’s pain receptors, and only allowing feelings of euphoria to enter. Users of this drug that have pre-existing mental disorders like depression or anxiety will find that their ailments are temporarily relieved by this drug. This short-term solution is dangerous because the individual can very quickly become dependent on it to feel happiness. Overuse of Percocet or Oxycodone results in the brain producing less of its own happy hormones and continuously relies more on the drug. When this cycle begins, the user needs more and more help from the oxycodone just to feel normal again. Then begins the vicious cycle of addiction.

What Percocet Addiction Looks Like

The effects of Percocet, like other opioids, are short-lived. Soon after experiencing the euphoric high, an addict will start to experience very uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. Here are some of the most common symptoms to look for.

  • Excessive sweating
  • Nausea or Vomiting
  • Irritability
  • Insomnia
  • Aches and pains
  • Anxiety
  • Indigestion
  • Runny nose

The most dangerous part of an opioid addiction is not withdrawal but overdose. Someone with an opioid addiction must get treatment before the risk of overdose becomes too high.
