Percocet is an incredibly addictive narcotic with Oxycodone listed as the main ingredient. While it works great to relieve pain when used appropriately, it can also release the joy from your life if abused.
Thankfully, The Lakehouse Recovery Center has found success in treating those individuals who have to succumb to the grip of prescription drugs through our personalized Percocet addiction treatment program. Our multi-faceted approach can help an individual recover successfully from any addiction situation.
Addiction to Percocet
Percocet is very common – and very accessible. In fact, it is not unusual to find it in your grandma’s medicine cabinet for her arthritis pain or in your kitchen after your teenage sister’s oral surgery appointment.
Formed as a combination of Oxycodone and Acetaminophen (Tylenol), Percocet is a painkiller for everyone. Perhaps this is why it has become such a big part of prescription drugs addiction treatment.
In fact, because every day, ordinary people use this drug, you are usually addicted before you even realize there is a problem. The most common signs are:
- Building up a tolerance and requiring more pills than you used to once use.
- Taking larger doses than advised.
- Seeking out additional doctors to obtain more scripts after your doctor’s refusal.
- Resorting to purchasing Percocet on the street.
If you can relate to any of the above, you may want to seek professional help for Percocet addiction treatment.
Symptoms of Addiction
These symptoms include:
- Runny nose
- Tearing eyes
- Aches and pains
- Upset stomach
- Difficulty sleeping
Individuals who have been taking Percocet on a continuous basis for more than five to seven days should not suddenly stop taking this drug as withdrawal symptoms could occur. This should only be done while being monitored by your doctor who will probably want to gradually reduce your dosage of this powerful narcotic analgesic.
