Opiate Addiction Rehab: Oxycodone and Prescription Addiction
Oxycodone dependency is commensurate with whether an individual takes the medication as directed.For those that do, physical and emotional dependence is still a very real risk. For those ingesting the drug without medical supervision, the dependency risks are extremely high, often resulting in prescription addiction.
Tolerance to this class of drug builds quickly with, increased risk to those taking Oxycodone by chewing, snorting, or injecting for the “rush”.
Oxycodone oral medications are generally prescribed for the relief of moderate to severe pain. Currently it is formulated as single ingredient products or compounded products. Some common examples of compounding are oxycodone with acetaminophen/paracetamol or NSAIDs such as ibuprofen. The formulations are available as generics but are also made under various brand names.
