One of the most serious Percocet side effects can be opioid addiction. Percocet addiction can also lead addicts to search for a stronger narcotic such as OxyContin or heroin, both opioid drugs of addiction. There are many former addicts who were addicted to Percocet and other narcotics, who are today fully recovered from their addiction thanks to Narconon.
Opioid addiction is notoriously difficult to overcome once the cycle has begun. Unfortunately, people using Percocet as a prescription drug, very seldom realize, until much damage is done, that they have an addiction. Percocet, due to its oxycodone content, is a highly addictive opioid.
People using Percocet (and Percodan) need to understand that opioids can lead to dependency, and addiction at a mental and physical level. Although the medical profession tends to maintain a separation as between mental and physical disorders – a healthy mind and emotional function is essential to good health in the body, and a healthy body integral to maintaining optimal levels of mental and emotional health. Using Percocet on prescription you can expect some level of dependency to occur within two to three weeks. The opioid found in Percocet, namely oxycodone, was never intended to be used for long term pain relief. Long term in this context means using for more than a week.
Placing Health at Risk
When we use drugs such as Percocet, illicitly, or on prescription, it immediately places our mental and physical health at risk. In our current society, we are so indoctrinated with the idea that drugs are the answer to pain, that we never question the use of drugs, particularly when prescribed by a doctor.
We are so conditioned to using over the counter (OTC) and prescription drugs when something goes wrong with our health that the issue of relevant “side effects” is, again, not something that we question. We expect prescription drugs to have side effects, and in turn we are expected to put up with, and tolerate detrimental, sometimes fatal, side effects as a result of using the painkiller drugs that are available on prescription.
Prescription drugs for pain override and eventually replace the natural systems in the body that can provide natural pain control and relief. So effective are the hard marketing techniques used to sell prescription pain relievers, that many people today don’t even know that the body is perfectly able to provide endogenous pain relief, superior to manufactured narcotics, with no side effects.
An opportunity to seek natural, non-narcotic, therapeutic intervention is subverted, and denied to us when we accept artificial medications without any question.
Side Effects Mean Toxicity
In the context of Percocet side effects, people need to be aware that side effects with drug use mean that the drug is toxic to the body. Percocet has side effects such as nausea, drowsiness and itching. These symptoms actually indicate disruption to the digestive and excretory tracts, to the central and peripheral nervous system, and to cardio-vascular function.
Opioids subdue not only pain, but all our brain and body functions, including the immune response. Chronic sores in heroin addict’s, and a lack of healing of infections when opioids are used for pain relief have been noted and studied, but no conclusions drawn.
A study by the University of Minnesota, published in February 2010, in the American Journal of Pathology has concluded that chronic use of morphine, as a painkiller, causes delay to wound healing in the presence of infection. Although morphine provides pain relief, it also appears to reduce the efficiency of the immune system. Further research is intended as to why this should happen. It is thought that more studies will be helpful to heroin addicts who frequently present with long term slow to heal wounds, also the many people today who suffer stress-related immune deficiencies.
Natural Remedies Should Be an Option Too
It would seem that researchers today in the medical field are forced to wear blinders – as their studies consistently overlook an inherent bias in the work. An underlying and necessary drug regime is always presupposed – with an intention to be inventing and using more drugs in that context. Never is it suggested that we would all be better off using natural, therapeutic and totally drug-free options for relief of pain, and full recovery from illness, or addiction.
Percocet and Side Effects on the Liver
Percocet is one of many “combination” drugs that, in addition to oxycodone contain the drug acetaminophen (paracetamol), a non narcotic analgesic. Paracetamol also has side effects, and can be fatally toxic to the liver. It is only recently that the FDA has clamped down on combination drugs so as to avoid accidental overdosing.
Other Side Effects of Percocet
There is a wide range of contra indications and known side effects for the prescription drug Percocet not to be used when pregnant or breastfeeding. Side effects include the usual opioid effects of constipation, aching limbs, inability to sleep, visual disturbance, depressive mood swings and agitation. Too much Percocet can slow down breathing, and heart rate, can have lethal side effects.
