Percocet Withdrawal
Effects

Percocet is a narcotic (oxycodone) and acetaminophen combination. They are combined to get a synergistic effect on pain. Oxycodone is similar to other narcotics in terms of effect and addiction. Acetaminophen is better known as Tylenol. Percocet addiction can affect the young, middle aged, or elderly. Individuals addicted to Percocet may come from any walk of life, hold entry level or high positions, be parents or grandparents, single or married. Often, the addiction to percocet develops without the individual realizing it until it begins to control their life. When an individual exceeds the dosage prescribed or seeks to obtain Percocet after the time prescribed by their physician, they should be awear of the posibility that they have developed a Percocet addiction. Abruptly stoping or reducing the intake of Percocet can cause severe withdrawal symptoms. These begin six to eight hours after the last dosage.

Percocet addiction withdrawal symptoms include but are not limited to:

  • feeling as though you have the flu
  • gastrointestinal distress
  • anxiety
  • nausea
  • insomnia
  • muscle pain
  • fevers
  • sweating
  • runny nose and eyes

 

  • Drug Facts
  • Addiction is a major risk with prolonged use (over 2-3 weeks) of percocet.
  • Percocet is an addictive narcotic and even a normal dose can be fatal.
  • Percocet can cause spasms of the stomach and/or intestinal tract.
  • Percocet when abused can be taken orally in pill form, chewed, or crushed (then snorted like cocaine).
