Do you nod off, have mood swings and feel irritable or depressed? These are all side effects of OxyContin abuse. A single OxyContin pill (when crushed, snorted or injected) can deliver the same amount of oxycodone as 16 Percocet pills. You risk becoming addicted when using OxyContin this way.
OxyContin can rob you of your life, your family, and your finances. You need help to break the strangle hold that narcotic drugs have on your body and mind. Recovery Connection has been helping people find treatment for years. We can help you too. Call 866.812.8231 now and get started on the road to recovery today.
What is OxyContin Addiction?
If you miss a dose of OxyContin, you will become sick and need medical attention. Your body’s dependence on the drug may lead to you to questionable behavior when you try to avoid the pain of OxyContin withdrawal. For example, you may look for the drug by doctor shopping, get it from friends, steal it from medicine cabinets of homes you visit or buy them illegally.
More Signs of Oxycontin Addiction:
- Slowed breathing
- Muscle rigidity
- Slowed heart rate
- Nodding off
- Mood swings
- Dry mouth
- Sleep disorders
OxyContin is the brand name for the prescription pain reliever oxycodone and typically prescribed for chronic pain and cancer patients. OxyContin is commonly abused because of the high concentrations of oxycodone.
OxyContin has become widely abused because it is an opiate that changes the perception of pain while offering a euphoric effect. You need detox and drug rehab to eliminate abuse after your body has become dependent. Call us at 866-812-8231 and get clean today. We can help you find a comfortable OxyContin detox center that fits your needs.
