OxyContin Side Effects/Withdrawal


OxyContin Side Effects and Withdrawal Symptoms

Many people have been asking us: What are the side effects of OxyContin?

They are asking about the common symptoms that might be experienced by someone taking OxyContin, whether for relief of pain or when indulging in OxyContin abuse.

Before we detail the simple, common side effects, there are three major categories of OxyContin side effects that should be well understood before ever agreeing to take this drug:

Common OxyContin Side Effects

OxyContin is an extended-release version of the opioid painkiller oxycodone. The common side effects of just taking the drug are much the same as those for oxycodone itself—a fairly short list of symptoms commonly experienced by people using, or abusing, OxyContin.

The most common OxyContin side effects are:

  • Constipation
  • Dizziness
  • Drowsiness
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Sleeplessness
  • Vomiting
  • Weakness

Labeling for OxyContin suggests that you should check with your doctor if any of these common side effects persist or become bothersome while taking OxyContin.

However, the labeling warns users to seek immediate medical attention if any of the following severe side effects occur:

  • Severe allergic reactions
    • Rash
    • Hives
    • Itching
    • Difficulty breathing
    • Tightness in the chest
    • Swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue
  • Confusion
  • Difficulty urinating
  • Fast, slow, or irregular heartbeat
  • Seizures
  • Severe dizziness
  • Lightheadedness or fainting
  • Slowed or difficult breathing
  • Tremor
  • Vision changes.

When you add these common and severe OxyContin side effects to the drug’s risk of dependence, addiction and sudden death, it’s no wonder that federal and state officials are being urged to ban OxyContin by concerned citizens and consumer watchdog groups across the country.

OxyContin Withdrawal Symptoms

OxyContin withdrawal symptoms are often referred to as “the worst flu you can ever imagine” by those who have tried to get off the drug, and include:

  • Frequent nausea and vomiting
  • Relentless abdominal pain
  • Rapid or irregular heartbeat
  • Heavy sweating
  • Hot and cold flashes
  • Anxiety and agitation
  • Sleeplessness
  • Dilated pupils
  • Diarrhea
  • Runny nose
  • Coughing fits
  • Goose bumps

Why Novus Is The Obvious Choice For OxyContin Detox

OxyContin withdrawal symptoms can always be expected, whether one withdraws “cold turkey” or attempts withdrawal at any of the drug detox centers across the country. OxyContin withdrawal symptoms are too difficult for most people to tolerate. Almost everyone who has tried to withdraw from OxyContin is soon taking the drug again.

Few drug detox centers provide the kind of modern medical OxyContin detox offered by Novus Medical Detox Center, where OxyContin withdrawal symptoms are greatly reduced.

Also, without medical assistance, OxyContin withdrawal can actually be dangerous for people with delicate health problems—and most addicts have compromised their health due to their drug abuse.

Many people seek help at Novus Medical Detox Center because each patient is carefully screened, and an individual program is created to match his or her precise health requirements.

Finally, OxyContin withdrawal normally takes several days at a minimum, and for some people continues for a week or more, even two or three weeks. The time required for a complete, successful OxyContin detox at Novus Medical Detox Center has been scientifically reduced to the absolute minimum, yet another reason people are choosing to handle their drug problems at Novus.

OxyContin By Any Other Name . . .

OxyContin is frequently misspelled or mispronounced. You often see or hear “oxycotton withdrawal symptoms” or “oxycotin side effects”. Among other terms for OxyContin are:

  • oxycotton
  • oxycoton
  • oxycotin
  • oxycottin
  • oxicontin
  • oxy cotton
  • oxy cotin
  • oxy cotten
  • oxy cottin
  • oxy contin

On the street, no one cares how it’s spelled or spoken, and the simple “Oxy” is often all you hear. And regardless of the spelling or the pronunciation, OxyContin is one of the world’s most dangerously addictive and deadly drugs. It acts on the body just like heroin and is used interchangeably with heroin.

A Safe and More Comfortable Withdrawal Is the Best  Option.
