Percocet is a pain killer mixture of oxycodone and acetaminophen. Percocet’s original use is intended to manage moderate to severe pain for a length of time. This particular drug was never intended to be used on an as needed basis which is why so many people have become addicted to the substance.
Percocet side effects can include, but are not limited to, stomach issues, dizzy feeling, headaches, itchy sensation, excessive sweating, bowel movement issues, frequently tired, and decrease in pain. Overdose can occur from an overuse of Percocet.
Difficulty breathing, respiratory arrest, low blood pressure, decreases in blood circulation, and shock. All which can lead to death if not addressed immediately. If you suspect you, or a loved one, is experiencing an overdose from Percocet, call 911 now.
Percocet should not be mixed with other drugs (without a medical prescription and advisement) or alcohol. Mixing Percocet with other substances may lead to death.
