Drugs and Alcohol Addiction is a universal problem. There are several ways to overcome it.
Percodan Addiction

Percodan is a moderately potent painkiller, an anti-inflammatory and a fever reducer. This brand is a combination of acetylsalicylic acid or aspirin, and Oxycodone. This drug is classified as a strong narcotic analgesic. Oxycodone binds to the pain receptors in the brain to reduce the sensation of pain. Acetylsalicylic acid has the power to halt the production of prostaglandins which otherwise cause pain. It is derived from thebaine, the opium alkaloid. Hence the similar addictive power. Since the drug contains narcotic elements, it is available only by prescription.



Effects

Percodan provides great relief to those who are suffering from severe pain. But at the same time it is risky if Percodan is taken in a larger dose, more frequently, or longer than the prescribed period. One of the side effects of acetaminophen or aspirin is that it can lead to liver and kidney failure. Gastrointestinal bleeding is another known side effect of using aspirin. If taken with other depressants or taken in high doses alone, the Percodan tablets can prove fatal. It happens as it lowers your respiratory system. Euphoria, drowsiness, constricted pupils, and nausea are some other side effects.

Symptoms of addiction

Using alcohol while taking Percodan may increase drowsiness and dizziness. Those who are addicted to alcohol or drug should use it only with the consent of the doctor, and under close supervision. Do not take Percodan if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Oxycodone is so powerful that even the fetus is vulnerable to addiction, withdrawal symptoms and other side effects.

Addiction

Percodan is highly addictive. Treatment programs including addiction counseling and treatment at a residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation center will help. Overnight Opiate Detoxification and Buprenorphine Detoxification are methods used to tackle uncomfortable situations caused by the use of Percodan.

Treatment

It is dangerous for those who are taking Percodan continuously for more than 5 to 7 days stopping it suddenly. It will cause withdrawal symptoms and make you very uncomfortable. It is safe to gradually reduce the dose. Rehabilitation with support of loved ones is the safest and best line of defense against substance addiction.
