Percodan Drug Rehab
What is Percodan?
Percodan is a brand name for one of numerous painkillers (analgesics) that are made from a combination of two-painkillers – oxycodone and aspirin. Oxycodone is classified in a family of drugs that are referred to as narcotic analgesics and is synthesized from thebaine, an opium derivative. Aspirin is considerably less potent than oxycodone but it is also an anti-inflammatory and helps reduce fevers. Additionally, many physicians today have put heart attack or heart disease patients on a daily regimen of aspirin.
Surprisingly, oxycodone is nothing new as it was developed in 1916 Germany as a semi-synthetic opioid along with several others in order to improve the current opiates and opioids specifically codeine, heroin, and morphine. Today, Percodan is most commonly prescribed for relieving pain that is moderate to severe in nature and is taken orally. It comes either as a compound medication (see above) or as the only ingredient in the drug.
Percodan Side Effects
As with any prescribed medication, Percodan is not free of side effects. The following is a list of the most common ones so that you are aware of them:
- Diaphoresis (excessive sweating)
- Dry mouth
- Euphoria (an emotional or mental state of profound well-being)
- Pruritus (itchiness and the compelling desire to scratch)
Additionally, Percodan has been found to cause abdominal pain, appetite loss, dimness in vision, diarrhea, hiccups, and nervousness.
Percodan Addiction Recovery
Percodan is a powerful narcotic painkiller and can cause dependency which indicates that an addiction is present. Because no two individuals are ever alike, each person’s body handles Percodan differently from the next person. It is powerfully habit forming and addictions to the drug frequently occur over the long term. Here are some of the ongoing warning signs to look for if you feel you or someone you know is addicted to Percodan:
- Accidental injury
- Blurry vision
- Dizziness and even frequent fainting
- Mental and/or physical impairment
Chances are if you or someone you know has been experiencing any combination of these, an effective drug rehab program may be the only solution.
