What is Percocet?
Percocet is a combination of acetaminophen (an antipyretic analgesic) and oxycodone (a very addictive semi-synthetic opioid). The drug produces effects and dependence that are similar to those produced by morphine and should only be taken under medical supervision. The effects of Percocet are felt directly on the central nervous system since it acts as a narcotic analgesic for relieving pain.
Many men and women become addicted to Percocet over long-term use and are unable to stop taking the drug on their own. Percocet is sought after by addicts as an easy way to achieve an opiate high. Our Percocet detox in West Palm Beach FL is here to help individuals that are serious about getting a handle on their prescription pain pill abuse.
Why Do I Need Percocet Detox?
While Percocet is not as strong as heroin, it’s still very difficult to stop taking these pills on your own without any assistance. Detoxification ensures a safe and successful withdrawal from Percocet addiction. It reduces the risks associated with painful withdrawal symptoms and also makes the withdrawal symptoms bearable. ‘Cold turkey’ withdrawal on your own can lead to serious discomfort which may quickly lead back to a relapse. Our medically-supervised Percocet detox in West Palm Beach, Florida will increase your chances of successfully living a healthy life that is addiction-free.
Symptoms of Withdrawal
The severity of a Percocet detox depends on a variety of factors, including how many pills you’ve been taking each day, and the route of administration. However, the classic symptoms of Percocet withdrawal often include:
- Unstable mood
These symptoms can lead to the occurrence of co-existing conditions. The co-existing conditions can lead to medical emergencies which require immediate attention. Some of the crisis conditions are:
- Dehydration and hypertension
- Anxiety and panic disorders
- Impulse disorders
- Mood disorders
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
