Roxicodone abuse can be very dangerous because it is a potent narcotic analgesic. Serious health and legal problems could develop along with physical and psychological dependency. Roxicodone is the brand name for oxycodone hydrochloride, used to treat moderate to serious pain. The opioid medication has a strong potential to be abused and is subject to criminal diversion based on its potency. It’s considered a Schedule II Controlled Substance in the U.S., a classification that takes abuse potential into account. Abuse and misuse could be considered any behavior that goes against the drug’s label and directions. This could include taking more than what’s prescribed, taking it more often than what’s recommended, combining it with other substances to increase its effects or tampering with the medication.
Roxicodone Abuse Can Stem From Therapeutic or Recreational Use
Roxicodone can depress the central nervous system. Combining it with other substances that have this effect could prove fatal. These include alcohol, other narcotics, tranquilizers, sedatives and sleeping medications. Abuse can result from recreational use or therapeutic use that becomes out of control. Some people mix Roxicodone with other substances to increase the “high” or euphoric feelings it can produce. The Waismann Method has been successfully and safely treating opioid dependence for over a decade. The majority of our clients become addicted to Roxicodone through no fault of their own. Oftentimes, it begins with a legitimate prescription from a doctor for pain relief. With regular use, the body can become used to the drug, building up a tolerance so that the prescribed dosage no longer produces the desired effect, be it pain relief or euphoria. This can lead patients to escalate their use by increasing their dose. This is dangerous, not only because it can lead to dependence, but also because abuse can lead to a fatal overdose. Other signs of abuse and addiction include a mental preoccupation with obtaining and consuming the drug. Others may falsify prescriptions or shop around for different doctors to secure more than one supply.
