Percocet is also called Oxycodone, an addictive narcotic based pain reliever. Although it is approved by the FDA for treat chronic lower back pain, high doses may cause serious health problems.
Los Angeles, CA (Merxwire) – Percocet is an addictive narcotic based pain reliever, also known as Oxycodone. It is a mixture of highly potent synthetic narcotic oxycodone and powerful pain medication acetaminophen. Percocet has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of chronic lower back pain in the United States. It can also be used for short-term relief of pain caused by arthritis, tendonitis, or muscle spasms. But you must be aware that Percocet may develop habits, and if you use Percocets regularly, they may cause serious health problems.
To be sure, Percocet really function as an opioid! Although oxycodone and acetaminophen have a reputation as pain killers, if you take high doses, they have a different effect on the body. Therefore, the doctor prescribes only a very small amount of two substances in each prescription. The severe pain caused by a small amount can still be stopped by stopping the delivery of the drug.
Oxycodone has been around since the 1940s and was first used to treat patients with opiate addiction. Over the last decade, it has been abused by prescription drug abusers and non-opiate drug abusers. There have been a number of cases of Percocet addiction arising from users. As a result, Percocet has become a very addictive narcotic. In addition to being highly habit forming, it can cause serious and life-threatening complications in users who use it for prolonged periods. When these complications arise, the drug is no longer able to function like an analgesic and can actually cause withdrawal symptoms.
Long term use of Percocet can cause serious liver toxicity, respiratory depression, and even death. In fact, the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence has listed Percocets as one of its five most dangerous narcotic drugs and warned against its use. While not classified as a Schedule I narcotic, the drug has the potential to become such a dangerous drug that it may be banned in certain countries.
The question remains, then, how long does Percocet remain in the body? Well, that depends largely on the dose taken, as well as factors such as how often the drug is taken, and whether or not it is used in conjunction with other substances. If it is combined with alcohol, benzodiazepines, or other substances that will alter the normal chemistry of the body, the drug will have more of an effect on the body than if taken alone.
