Painkillers are often considered addictive especially if taken frequently. One such painkiller, Oxycodone, scientifically known as 1, 4-hydroxydihydrocodeinone, is one such strong painkiller which stores enough potential within itself to make anyone addictive. A medical drug available as a white, odorless mass with a bitter taste is extracted from the opium alkaloid thiamine. The medical drug and its side effects are concerned mainly with the central nervous system. Thus, taking of Oxycodone leaves several severe effects inside the body.
Although it is an effective solution for pain relief, Oxycodone addictiveness is indeed a worrying issue. Some of the common symptoms normally observed are breathing problems or shallow breathing. Nausea is also observed which can get chronic in some cases. Addictiveness can also be observed from digestion disorders like vomiting, constipation or loss of appetite. In certain cases, the victim may also suffer from mild itching in some body parts. In most cases, the nervous becomes less active and the person suffers from drowsiness, dizziness.
Oxycodone addiction is best rehabilitated if given proper treatment as soon as possible. Oxycodone addiction rehabilitation is best performed by Meta therapy. Meta-analysis is performed on the basis of various trials with different outcomes respectively. The mental and physical condition of the patient is noted and treatments are performed accordingly. Each step of the treatment in the rehabilitation therapy depends on the level of addiction of the patient. Treatment through Meta-analysis is slow but very effective.
In the initial stage, full support from the family members and friends is must. Later, slowly the patient should be made to adjust without the drug. Although sometimes, it is hard for the body to accept the absence of it but proper ways of treatment can gradually do so. In chronic cases where the physical state of the victim refuses to accept the absence of the drug, substitute medicines are provided to fool the Central nervous system while recognizing it.
Gradually, the patient recovers from the effect. However, in some cases, there is always a chance for the person to fall prey to depression and craving for Oxycodone returns. The later stage of rehabilitation includes support from near and dear ones to overcome the depression and accept the life without the Oxycodone drug. It is only through strong will power and determination to resist the cravings for the drug that makes a man completely resistant to drug addiction.
