Percodan is an opiate painkiller, the combination of oxycodone, a narcotic, and aspirin, a non-narcotic pain reliever. It’s used for treating moderately severe to severe short-term pain. Withdrawing from it can be intense and pose health problems such as seizures. It’s important to find a professional detox program to help manage withdrawal. The fear of a painful and intense withdrawal is often what keeps many people from getting help for addiction. Withdrawal is the process the body goes through when it begins to detox from a drug. The withdrawal syndrome associated with opiate addiction can be intense and hard to manage without professional medical detox. Symptoms are wide-ranging and can vary based on the length and severity of the addiction and the individual’s biochemistry. Physical and psychological symptoms typically set in within hours of last use and could last days or weeks. When patients are legitimately prescribed Percodan for pain, regular or prolonged use can lead to the development of a tolerance. Once the body becomes used to the drug, it no longer registers its effects. This may cause some to misuse or abuse it. An addiction can develop quickly, requiring professional help to treat it.
Trying to Wean “Cold Turkey” from Percodan Can Be Dangerous
Not everyone experiences withdrawal in the same way. One of the most obvious signs of Percodan withdrawal is intense physical and psychological cravings for the drug. A patient who doesn’t realize he or she is addicted may experience the discomfort of withdrawal and take another dose to feel better. Suddenly stopping or gradually decreasing the use of Percodan can lead to withdrawal. Trying to go “cold turkey” is dangerous, especially among long-term users and abusers. Health complications including seizures could develop. Other common signs and symptoms of withdrawal are mood changes, agitation, tremors, runny nose, chills, sneezing, yawning, sleeplessness, anxiousness, restlessness, weakness, flu-like symptoms, depression, hallucination, delirium, cramps, diarrhea, sweating, vomiting, muscle and bone pain, confusion, extreme irritability and muscle spasms. Not having enough of the medication and the prospect of going into withdrawal can make patients engage in risky behaviors to get it.
