Oxycodone Addiction

Oxycodone Addiction

Oxycodone, a prescription painkiller, is frequently prescribed to people with severe pain, those suffering from bone, cancer, and other severe illnesses. In many cases of oxycodone addiction, the addicted person started out taking the medication per their doctor's instructions. A person's tolerance is built up over time so that they eventually become addicted. In other situations, the addiction starts through illegal acquisition of oxycodone. If you or a loved one are suffering from oxycodone addiction, give The View a call at (877) 310-4343 for help today.

Symptoms of Oxycodone Addiction

 Symptoms of oxycodone addiction include:

  • Drowsiness
  • Euphoria
  • Nausea & vomiting
  • Constipation
  • Low blood pressure
  • Respiratory issues

If a person can't get their oxycodone, they typically start to go through withdrawal within 4 to 6 hours of their last dose. Symptoms will peak after 72 hours and usually subside within a week. A person going through oxycodone addiction might experience aches, chills, sweats, goose bumps, nausea, stomach cramps, and headaches. Overdose deaths are also a problem with oxycodone. In 2015, over 15,000 people died from overdoses involving prescription opioids, like oxycodone.

According to the DEA:

  • Nearly 60 million oxycodone prescriptions were written in 2013.
  • In 2012, more than 16 million people reported abusing oxycodone at some point in their lifetime.
  • Oxycodone is addressed by law enforcement more than any other prescription drug.
