What Is Percocet?

Percocet is a combination of two drugs, Acetaminophen and oxycodone, prescribed to treat moderate to severe pain as a result of illness, injury or recovery from surgery. Percocet (often misspelled Percoset) is a highly-addictive drug in the opiate category and can produce both physical and psychological dependence if used for an extended period of time.

The Dangers and Symptoms of Percocet Abuse

In order to achieve or maintain intense euphoria, many individuals will constantly increase the prescribed dosage of Percocet. In fact, looking for the drug may turn into a time-consuming process. Percocet abusers usually inject the drug or mix it with alcohol to heighten the effect. However, if combined with alcohol, tranquilizers or sleeping pills, Percocet may cause difficulty in breathing or loss of consciousness. It is important to note that seniors should exercise extreme caution when using the drug as they tend be more sensitive to the drug’s side effects. If taken in large doses, the Acetaminophen contained in Percocet can cause liver problems and gastrointestinal bleeding. Symptoms of Percocet addiction include:

  • Slow hearbeat
  • Shallow breathing
  • Confusion
  • Seizures
  • Loss of appetite
  • Itching
  • Blurred vision
  • Low blood pressure
  • Sweating, and other disturbing effects

Percocet Withdrawal Symptoms

Although Percocet withdrawal symptoms may not be life-threatening, they can be extremely unpleasant and painful. Some of the symptoms include:

  • Restlessness
  • Nausea
  • Abnormal breathing
  • Sweating
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Irritability
  • Anxiety
  • Thoughts of suicide
