Each patient who takes the prescription drug Oxy IR will have a different experience when it comes to side effects. Most people will experience some effects, though most will be mild and short-lived. Oxy IR is prescribed for pain relief that is moderate to severe. The opiate (narcotic) medication can cause a host of side effects that range from headaches and nausea to physical and psychological dependence.
For most people, side effects appear shortly after therapy with the drug begins. In most cases, they dissipate once the body gets used to the drug. With the exception of chronic conditions and illnesses, most opiate painkillers are meant to be prescribed for relatively short periods of time due to their potency and ability to cause dependence. How a person responds to Oxy IR can depend on factors including the individual’s body chemistry, how he or she responds to the drug and whether other medications and substances are being taken with the drug and the dosage.
Signs of Common and More Serious Oxy IR Side Effects
Oxy IR and other opiates can also cause serious side effects such as tolerance, allergic reactions, interactions with other substances, physical and psychological dependency, overdose and withdrawal symptoms when use is stopped abruptly. Any change in side effects should be reported to a doctor, especially when they become more intense.
The information packet that accompanies Oxy IR lists possible side effects, which include constipation, sedation or euphoria, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, drowsiness, skin rashes, abdominal pain, insomnia, lightheadedness, weakness, headache, visual disturbances and hallucinations. Signs of a serious reaction include rash, hives, itching, facial swelling, difficulty breathing, confusion, breathing problems, seizures, fast or slow heart beat, severe dizziness, tremors, fainting and coma. Emergency medical help should be summoned immediately if any of these serious symptoms develop.
Waismann Method Can Get You Opiate Free in Two to Four Days
One of the troubling and serious side effects of opiate therapy is that addiction can develop with regular or prolonged use. This is scary but it’s important to know it’s treatable. For more than a decade, the Waismann Method has offered rapid opiate detox for drugs including Oxy IR, OxyContin , Demerol, Percocet, Lortab and Norco. We use intravenous medication to clean Oxy IR from patients’ opiate receptors. They are lightly sedated under general deep sedation during this and awake without awareness they experienced accelerated withdrawal. Speeding up withdrawal minimizes the symptoms, providing the most comfortable detox for patients.
We also don’t use opiate replacements such as methadone or Suboxone to gradually wean patients. Our procedure takes just over an hour and we require a hospital stay of 2 to 4 days. Following discharge, patients can return to a productive, opiate-free life or decide to extend their stay in our Domus Retreat aftercare facility. Some patients opt to make the transition at Domus while enjoying therapeutic and pampering services in the privacy of our tranquil facilities. These include massage, relaxation, biofeedback and group and individual counseling. Our detox program and aftercare are thoroughly compassionate, supportive and discreet.
