Oxycodone Side Effects

por Diane Beet (2020-01-12)

A person suffering from moderate to severe pain may receive a prescription from the doctor for the combination of the generically named medicines acetaminophen and oxycodone. Perloxx can make the person produce abnormal stools while using the medicine. It may turn the stools to the consistency and color of tar. It also can cause the person's stools to appear lighter than normal in color. Either of these side effects needs immediate medical intervention, Mayo Clinic indicates. Like most narcotic pain relievers, the oxycodone in Perloxx can cause the person to find it difficult to focus her vision, Indicates. She may have trouble with near or far object recognition, or it may occur as a general blurriness.

Going by such brand names as Percocet, OxyContin, Tylox and Percodan, oxycodone is an opiate that is highly addictive and is being abused by many. When taken repeatedly, one can become tolerant to the drug, therefore requiring higher doses to experience the same effects. Oxycodone is often mistakenly referred to as oxycotton. While OxyContin is a brand name of the drug, oxycotton is just a misspelling of the name. This drug is also referred to as oxy and hillbilly heroin on the street. There are many different types of drug tests available that detect oxycodone. When searching for one, look for those that test for opiate abuse. Also look for drug tests that test for another opiate, hydrocodone.

Oxycodone is an narcotic analgesic used to control pain and an anti-cough medication. A common brand name is Oxycontin. Oxycodone addiction and use has been increasingly dramatically in the past ten years. In fact, the average use of oxycodone in the United States has increased by 300% of the past decade. Likewise, the number of emergency room visits related to oxycodone addiction and use has increased by 500%. A feeling of relaxation and satisfaction that can last for many hours then follows the initial high created by oxyocodone in the person with a oxyocodone addiction. Along with the feeling of relaxation, the respiratory system is affected causing a decrease in the rate of breathing. This slow down in the person with the addiction can be fatal.

I started using the Fentanyl Patch about 2 years ago for chronic fibromyalgia pain. When I first started them I read the common side effects on the paper the Pharmacy put in the bag. When I first started using the patches I thought it was an answer to Prayer, a miracle because the patch helped my pain so much. You would have thought I was a representative for a pharmaceutical company, I told everybody about them and how much they relieved my pain. Besides pain, oxycontin can decrease anxiety, cause euphoria, mental relaxation, constipation, and suppression of cough. It can also be used to treat moderate to severe pain associated with trauma, injuries, muscle pain, dislocations, fractures, arthritis, lower back pain, and pain associated with cancer.

If you aren't getting the relief you need (with or without the use of Cox-2 inhibitors), you may want to consult a pain specialist. Some large hospitals (such as Stanford University) have departments devoted to pain management.
