Oxycodone Addiction Statistics

“Oxy” is shorthand for oxycodone. It is one of the most commonly abused prescriptions in the United States.

If you have also used oxycodone recreationally and are struggling with addiction, you can get professional help now. As with all prescription opioids, rehab should be done with medication-assisted treatment because the withdrawal symptoms have a high risk of complications.

What Exactly Is OxyCodone?

Oxycodone is reserved for medical situations where another opioid treatment is inadequate in pain management. It is a narcotic analgesic, so it doesn’t interfere with the brain’s pain receptors but directly impacts your central nervous system. However, the derivations you have which contain oxycodone as their primary ingredient could have an effect on both. 

You might get a prescription for something like Percocet or Oxycontin, both of which contain oxycodone as their main ingredient.

How Is Oxycodone Used?

Oxycodone is a synthetic drug which means it is not directly derived from the poppy plant like other opioids. Instead, it’s created in a lab where you can get it in tablet or pill form. If you have a prescription, you intend to swallow the pill or tablet, which then releases your dose over several hours. 

When oxycodone is used for short-term pain relief, it inhibits communication between your pain receptors and your brain. It also creates euphoria, so you not only feel less pain, but you feel high. Many users of oxycodone enjoy muscle relaxation in addition to pain relief. However, even when it’s used as prescribed, oxycodone has side effects like the following:

There’s also a risk of overdose. Many people mistakenly believe that overdoses only happen if you have a severe addiction to oxycodone and you take too much, but in reality, the overdose can happen after you take your very first pill. If this happens, you risk extreme sedation where you can’t wake up and complete respiratory arrest, which means your brain stops telling your lungs to breathe, and you die. 

If you use oxycodone regularly, you can develop physical and psychological issues like difficulty breathing, muscle weakness, extreme drowsiness, restlessness, nausea, and abdominal cramping. The longer you use oxycodone to treat pain relief, the more likely you will start abusing it. 

If you are struggling with addiction, let Reign Residential Treatment Center help you. RRTC is a South Florida addiction recovery center that can help you overcome your addiction issues.

the Symptoms

What Are The Symptoms Of Oxycodone Abuse?

The start of addiction and the need for South Florida oxycodone rehab can be quite small. You might skip your prescribed dosage for one day and start to feel an increase in your pain level or develop short-term side effects, so you take a higher dose, and you take it more often.

When this happens, oxycodone abuse starts to manifest in the form of mood changes, problems with pain, and sleep.

When people start the struggle with addiction, they don’t necessarily use the prescription the way it was intended. For example, rather than swallowing the pill, someone with an addiction might crush it or snort it so that they get faster results.

Perhaps the most prominent symptom is cravings. With uncontrollable cravings because of your addiction, you are much more likely to do what’s called doctor shopping. Doctor shopping is when you visit multiple doctors to try and get multiple prescriptions at the same time. You might report the same symptoms for the same ailment to half a dozen doctors within your area and a few hours away.

As your abuse continues, you might show signs of financial struggle or withdraw from social activities because of your dependence.
