Oxycodone is a powerful “opioid analgesic.” Though these drugs relieve pain, they are highly addictive and can be harmful to the body. You may have taken it by any of several different brand names, including OxyFast, OxyIR, Percolone, Roxicodone, Eukodal, Dinarkon, or Supeudol. Sometimes, it is combined with aspirin, and then you may know it as Percodan, Endodan or Roxiprin. When combined with acetaminophen, it is known as Percocet, Endocet, Roxicet and Tylox.
The more you use Oxycodone, the more you need, which leads to addiction. The National Institute of Health stated recently that 52 million teens and adults use their prescription drugs non-medically. Medical News Today recently reported that an increasing number of babies are born addicted “due to opioid overprescription.” The National Institute of Health reports that drug-related visits to hospital emergency rooms spiked sharply recently – oxycodone-induced visits alone increased 242.2 percent. A recent video from Science Daily points out, taxpayers are footing the bill.
Symptoms of addiction can include shallow breathing, respiratory arrest (you stop breathing), flabby skeletal muscles, or even a drop in blood pressure and your heart rate, which can bring on a coma and death. Oxycodone withdrawal is often a painful process, particularly after heavy use. Your withdrawal symptoms may resemble heroin withdrawal, including sweating, heart spasms, body and muscle ache, diarrhea, watery eyes, sneezing, “goose bump cool” skin, pale and clammy skin, nausea with or without vomiting, chills, trembling, abdominal cramping, convulsions, dehydration, restlessness, leg spasms or kicking, insomnia, and mood disturbances.
In short, detox is tough when you try to go it alone. The Rapid Drug Detox (RDD) Center developed a better way. The RDD Center’s Anesthesia Oxycodone detox is a proven procedure that effectively reduces the pain and discomfort associated with conventional Oxycodone detox. Rapid anesthesia detoxification (The RDD Method™) is a medical procedure that “cleans” the Oxycodone drug from your brain’s opiate receptors. It even eases you successfully through the “rebound anxiety” that often accompanies detoxification. Instead of a difficult, several-week withdrawal period, the Center’s RDD treatment takes 3 days and eliminates most withdrawal symptoms. The actual procedure takes about an hour. After a brief, painless series of tests, you are admitted to the operating room (O.R.). There, an experienced, board certified anesthesiologist gives you a medication to relax and then administers a light, general anesthesia. Then, while you rest comfortably, a team of experienced doctors “scrubs” the opiate receptors in your body, using an infusion of intravenous medications.
Once the Oxycodone is removed from your receptors, the worst of the withdrawal is over. And you slept through it all. After the procedure, you recover under direct medical supervision. The RDD team of experienced medical professionals monitors your vital signs and your overall physical and mental reactions. In the days that follow the procedure, you may sleep more than usual. Administered by professionals as part of a long-term drug-addiction recovery strategy, the RDD Method™ has proven to be significantly more effective than other methods.
