Understanding Endocet Abuse
From the Doctor to the Dealer
Endocet is one of many opioid painkillers containing a combination of oxycodone and acetaminophen. It is used to treat moderate to severe pain and is extremely addictive. While Endocet abuse may be less common than that of other drugs like OxyContin, Vicodin or Percocet, it still represents a common cause of addiction and subsequent overdose in the United States. Endocet is available in oral tablets ranging from five to ten-milligram strength. It is only legally available through a physician’s prescription and should never be taken in a manner inconsistent with doctor’s orders. If you or a loved one is suffering from Endocet abuse, you don’t have to go through this alone. Call RU Encore today.
Potential Side Effects of Endocet
Any medication containing oxycodone and acetaminophen comes with the danger of potential side effects. These effects can be amplified based on factors like patients’ medical history, genetic background, age, gender and more. Some of the possible effects of Endocet use include, but are not limited to:
- Dizziness and Drowsiness
- Blurred Vision
- Dry Mouth
- Nausea, Vomiting and Constipation
Talk to your doctor about adjusting your dosage if you’re experiencing any one of these symptoms. Once legitimate use turns to abuse, these effects become much more dangerous and are accompanied by other serious medical issues, such as hallucinations, aggression, irritability and much more.
