EFFECTS OF ENDOCET
- May 2, 2020
Here is more on the dangerous effects of Endocet.
Effects of Endocet
Endocet abuse occurs when you take gradually larger amounts of the drug, or the same amount of the drug more frequently than recommended. You may disregard the prescribed dose, and use the pills excessively to experience a high. Or you may have legitimate pain and take Endocet exactly as prescribed. As is the case with many narcotic medications, addiction can occur merely by taking the drug. Addiction to Endocet is first a physical dependence, then an emotional dependence, second.
The result of such an addiction is the continuation of the medication even when there is no longer any pain. In such cases, the abuser is not willing to admit to problems like nodding off, the inability to care for children or to a loss of productivity at work.
After you have become addicted to Endocet, you are generally taking higher doses than recommended to get high from the action of oxycodone on opioid brain receptors. Because Endocet combines oxycodone with acetaminophen, increasing the dose for the opiate means larger doses of acetaminophen, which produces liver toxicity in large doses. Endocet addiction isn’t your fault; addiction is a serious disease that requires long term, intensive medical treatment.
Signs of Endocet Addiction
Endocet abuse or addiction can ruin your life, as well as the lives of those around you. Deceit becomes a component of your everyday life; it becomes increasingly difficult to work, take care of all of your responsibilities, or to simply engage in life when you are addicted to Endocet.
The biggest sign of an addiction to Endocet addiction is habitual use and extreme denial, despite the obvious negative consequences. Denial at extreme levels is also likely to be manifested in the friends and family members of addicts. Statements such as, “You don’t know how much pain I’m in,” or “I’m not using that much, and you should mind your business anyway,” are typical defense mechanisms and excuses from the addict. However, a spouse, friend or other relative may also conjure up the same excuses for their addicted loved one.
