Table of Contents

Percocet warnings should be taken very seriously

If you are taking the prescription painkiller Percocet, there are numerous warnings and precautions that should be heeded before use begins.
Percocet contains oxycodone, a potent narcotic painkiller. Another ingredient is acetaminophen, a non-narcotic analgesic. This synthetic opioid is one of the most commonly prescribed painkillers, used to treat moderate to severe pain.
Percocet warnings can include tolerance, physical and psychological dependence, withdrawal and even overdose. Percocet has the potential to be habit-forming and carries stern warnings on the label in regard to use and possible dangers. Because of its addictive nature, it should not be prescribed to people who have become addicted to drugs or alcohol in the past. Opiate drugs are subject to misuse, abuse, recreational use, theft and diversion for illicit means.
It’s possible to take Percocet safely and effectively as long as patients follow instructions exactly.
If some Percocet warnings as Nausea, vomiting, constipation, lightheadedness, dizziness, or drowsiness may occur, you should call your doctor or pharmacist
Safe Use of Percocet is Important to Ensure Safety
Percocet is most often taken therapeutically for legitimate purposes but is also used recreationally, abused and sold and traded illegally.
Taking too much Percocet can cause serious problems including liver damage. This is because acetaminophen, in high doses, can injure the liver. Opiate abuse and misuse is extremely dangerous.
Even those who use the recommended dosage of Percocet can develop a problem once a tolerance takes hold. This is when the drug builds up in the body and effects are diminished, causing patients to need more and more to achieve pain relief. Dependence can follow quickly and patients may find they are addicted soon after. Other issues that can develop include serious side effects, allergic reaction and overdose. An uncomfortable withdrawal is a certainty for patients who become physically addicted to Percocet and try to detox without help.
Medical-Based Percocet Detox Can Help Patients Recover Quickly
Waismann Method provides a rapid opiate detox that helps ease patients through the difficult withdrawal phase. Other Percocet addiction programs rely on opiate replacements such as Suboxone and methadone to wean patients off other opiates. These medications are also opiates, meaning they could potentially cause a second dependence and the need for another detox.
Waismann Method Medical Group, uses intravenous medication to cleanse the Percocet from patients’ receptors, in order to precipitate the withdrawal and block the receptor sites. This anesthesia-assisted detoxification takes less than two hours and patients rest under sedation through it.
The procedure is performed in a private room of an ICU Unit, of our full service accredited hospital. This helps patients maintain their comfort and dignity through an otherwise difficult time. In most cases patients stay in the hospital 2 to 3 days and are transition to our Domus Retreat exclusive recovery facility where therapeutic services include yoga, massage, biofeedback, and individual counseling.
Different detoxification methods are available, based on specific medical and dependence needs. Programs offered by Waismann Method and Domus Retreat are safe, effective, humane and entirely discreet.
