Percocet addiction is caused by continuous use of Percocet.
Percocet is a combination of oxycodone and acetaminophen.
Percocet is available in 4 dosages 2.5/325 mg, 5/325 mg, 7.5/500 mg and 10/650 mg; the dosage is divided into two numbers with oxycodone dosage appearing first and acetaminophen dosage appearing second.
Percocet is used to treat moderate to moderate severe pain.
It should never be administered if the patient has a history of hypersensitivity to either oxycodone or acetaminophen.
Percocet can affect the elderly with a strong soporific effect caused by higher blood plasma levels of oxycodone. The belief is that the higher blood plasma levels of oxycodone in elderly patients are the result of slower metabolic rate and slower digestive motility caused by oxycodone’s effects.
Oxycodone slows motility which in turn slows metabolic rate which in turn increases blood plasma levels.
Percocet addiction is a result of Percocet abuse and Percocet dependency. The final analysis of Percocet addiction is that most if not all Percocet users cannot detox at home, they must seek outside help.
The rationale for outside professional help is due to the fact that Percocet users self-medicate as a matter of lifestyle and are unequipped to detox at home. In addiction the physical withdrawal is only one aspect of Percocet addiction; the second being opiate cravings which usually last days after a successful Percocet detoxification.
