WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF WITHDRAWAL FROM OXYCODONE?
Oxycodone is an extremely powerful drug that can often render patients tolerant in a very short time. Withdrawal is one of the clearest indicators of dependency and should be treated by a doctor or nurse who is trained in symptoms. While each patient’s oxycodone withdrawal symptoms will vary according to the scope and severity of their abuse, some of the more common symptoms include changes in mood, headaches, moderate to severe joint and muscle pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, hallucinations, sweating, flu-like symptoms, shaking and tremors, depression, anxiety, suicidal ideations and so much more.
The duration of oxycodone withdrawal varies from patient to patient; however, the longer oxycodone abuse persists, the more difficult withdrawal is likely to be. The drug creates serious and profound changes in biochemistry and causes patients to crave the drug beyond anything else in their lives. If you or a loved one are experiencing these or any other symptoms, speak to your prescribing physician or seek oxycodone withdrawal treatment right away.
CAUSES OF OXYCODONE WITHDRAWAL
People become dependent on oxycodone for a variety of reasons. Many start taking the drug out of sheer curiosity and wind up getting more than they bargain for; others wind up misusing their legitimate supply and quickly developing tolerance. One of the primary drivers of the prescription painkiller epidemic is the assumption by many users that these drugs are somehow less harmful than illicit drugs like heroin. They think that since their legal, they must be safe. The reality is that these drugs represent a serious and enduring threat that can have a serious impact on users’ overall health and quality of life.
