Roxicodone Addiction Signs

Roxicodone Addiction SignsRoxicodone is an opioid pain medication and cough suppressant. It contains oxycodone and is famed for its powerful sedative properties and notorious for being used illicitly.

Normal Effects of Roxicodone Use

When used as prescribed Roxicodone may produce the following side effects:

  • Lightheadedness and vertigo
  • Feeling calm
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Headache
  • Sweating
  • Constipation

Roxicodone is known to induce dependence and lead many users into addiction, so anyone who has received a prescription for this drug should be aware of this risk and take no more than the required dose and to discontinue use on the schedule prescribed by the doctor.

Effects of Roxicodone Overdose

Anyone who has overdosed on Roxicodone needs emergency help. Some common overdose symptoms are as follows:

  • Pinpoint pupils
  • Labored breathing
  • Lowered heart rate and blood pressure
  • Weakness or limpness
  • Slurred speech
  • Coma-inducing fatigue

Any overdose is a serious issue. Identifying Roxicodone abuse or addiction problems before an overdose occurs is ideal.

Recognizing Roxicodone Addiction before Overdose Occurs

There are several signs that a Roxicodone user has become an addict. The following are just a few of them:

  • The user’s eyes do not dilate in normal light
  • The user seems unusually jumpy, twitchy or restless with frequent slight limb spasms
  • Close friends and loved ones are asked for money frequently or find that money is missing
  • The user is not buying food or paying bills, as money is going toward Roxicodone instead
  • The user has bursts of energy followed by languor, and neither is explainable by normal sleep patterns
  • The user is storing Roxicodone in unusual places such as gum packs or glasses cases
  • The user suffers from chronic constipation, but his or her normal diet should not be causing it

If multiple symptoms of Roxicodone addiction are present, the user’s loved ones should begin to ask questions and find professional addiction resources. Even if nothing is wrong or the addiction scare is a false alarm, it is better to be overly cautious. If you can prevent a Roxicodone addiction or address an existing addiction, you can save a loved one’s life.
