Stages of Percocet Withdrawal

Signs of Percocet Addiction

Percocet addiction can occur in anyone and for those individuals that are living with a chronic pain disorder or recovering from surgery. While your use of Percocet started innocently as a method of pain management, the powerful components of this opioid medication can draw someone into a substance use disorder for a Percocet addiction. Percocet provides individuals with pain relief and euphoria, which can often draw individuals in with underlying emotions or traumas that have not been effectively processed or disorders that have unpleasant symptoms that haven’t been managed into a cycle of prescription drug abuse

Knowing when it is time to seek treatment for yourself or a loved one that is living with a Percocet addiction can be challenging for some if you don’t know what signs and symptoms to be mindful of. The following are common signs and indicators of a Percocet addiction:

  • Developing a tolerance to Percocet where you will have to take more to reach the same desired effect 
  • Having an increased sensitivity to pain 
  • Depression
  • Anxiety 
  • Sleepiness or drowsiness 
  • Seeing multiple doctors receive a prescription for Percocet 
  • Borrowing or stealing prescription drugs to maintain your drug addiction 
  • Isolating from loved ones 
  • Experiencing adverse side effects and consequences within your personal life and relationships due to your Percocet abuse 
  • Loss of interest in hobbies and activities that you once enjoyed 
  • Difficulty concentrating and staying focused on a task

Percocet Withdrawal Symptoms

When you or a loved one addicted to Percocet stops taking Percocet, your body will attempt to readjust to functioning without the influences of substance abuse. As your body and brain begin to learn how to function without taking Percocet, you will experience withdrawal syndrome that will create withdrawal symptoms that are unpleasant or uncomfortable. Common withdrawal symptoms of Percocet addiction are: 

  • Nausea and vomiting 
  • Psychological symptoms such as depression or anxiety 
  • stomach aches 
  • Diarrhea
  • Excessing yawning
  • Sneezing
  • Watery eyes
  • Runny nose
  • Hair standing on end
  • Restlessness
  • Irritability
  • Insomnia or other sleep disturbance
  • Mood swings 
  • Dilated pupils.
  • Cravings for Percocet 
  • Increased blood pressure
  • Elevated heart rate

Percocet Withdrawal Timeline

When you are ready to address your substance abuse within a drug detox and substance abuse treatment facility, many have questions about the upcoming drug detox process, including how long you will be within a drug detox program. At the same time, each individual will have their own unique experience and timeline of Percocet detox. However, a typical Percocet detox will occur within the following timeline:

  •  6 to 12 hours after the last time you were taking Percocet, you will begin to experience withdrawal symptoms, including restlessness or irritability. This stage is often where patients in drug detox will feel mild to moderate symptoms of withdrawal.
  • By days 1 to 3, patients will experience the most severe symptoms of Percocet withdrawal. 
  • Within days 4 to 9, your symptoms of withdrawal will decrease in severity, and you will commonly feel psychological symptoms such as depression and anxiety. 

Depending on the person, these psychological symptoms can occur for weeks or months. That is why you must continue to receive support from a drug rehab program within an addiction treatment center to have the emotional and psychological support you need to remain in addiction recovery.
