Is Oxycodone Addictive?
Yes, Oxycodone is dangerously addictive. Often, Oxycodone is prescribed as a pain-relieving drug. The prescription is indicated for the management of severe to moderate pain. Oxycodone is available in immediate releases, in formulas, or in combination with other analgesics, thus the different brand names.
Some of the common brand names include:
- Lortab- Hydrocodone and acetaminophen
- Percocet- OxyContin and acetaminophen
- Percodan- OxyContin, and aspirin
- OxyIR and OxyFast-oxycodone immediate release
Oxycodone is synthetically modified from opioid molecules obtained from poppy. Although oxycodone is fabricated in a lab, it carries similar traits and imparts in a similar way to the other opioids. It shares agonist properties and has a significant effect on the central nervous system, a phenomenon that is associated with the use of morphine and heroin. Also, like any other opioid in the market, oxycodone can deliver a powerful feeling of "highness," also known as euphoria, thus rendering the drug potential for substance abuse.
Prolonged use of oxycodone has been associated with the development of tolerance and dependence. And even though heavy opioid users develop a considerable amount of tolerance to the illegal drugs, they do not develop a tolerance towards the lethal side effects of the drugs. Most of them are frequently hospitalized or even die due to the effects of the drugs.
Many individuals who are addicted to Oxycodone began their addiction journey through a legal prescription, only for them to unwittingly become dependent on the drug. Owing to desperation, tolerance levels, and limited access to the oxycodone, most of the addicts turn to stronger opioids such as heroin. While the transition from a mundane and health benefiting drug to hardcore opiates might seem absurd, opiate withdrawals can be attributed to the bizarre and incongruous decision.
Oxycodone Addiction Signs and Symptoms?
There`s a thin line between a responsible use of oxycodone and oxycodone abuse. Then, you may ask, how does one know he/she`s headed to an addiction? In general, one gets addicted to oxycodone if he starts using the drug in ways not prescribed by a doctor. This is to mean that if you start to take the drug for its effects, rather than the pain purpose, then you`ve crossed the line.
The signs and symptoms of the oxycodone vary from individuals, depending on their health status, or period of use.
