OxyContin Addiction

OxyContin is a branded formulation of the strong, semi-synthetic opioid painkiller Oxycodone. It acts as a potent painkiller bringing relief to people suffering from bone or neurological degeneration, end-stage cancer or similar illnesses.

When taken in prescribed doses, OxyContin works as a safe and efficient medication providing relief from excruciating pain. However, the overuse or abuse of this drug can be extremely dangerous leading to addiction and even mortal peril.

OxyContin can be taken orally in the form of pills, through snorting in the shape of a powder produced by crushing the pills, or intravenously by injecting the powder. The abuse of OxyContin leads to severe physical anomalies and complications.

Symptoms of OxyContin Addiction

OxyContin addiction advances quickly and may easily lead to heroin addiction. It is important to note the physical symptoms of OxyContin addiction so that one may recognize if and when one of their loved ones gets addicted and take necessary steps.

The symptoms of OxyContin abuse are similar to those of opioid abuse and include:

  • Drowsiness, sometimes to the point of nodding off
  • Sedation
  • Euphoria
  • Lightheadedness
  • Itching
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Constipation
  • Low blood pressure
  • Respiratory suppression
  • Headache
  • Dry mouth
  • Sweating
