Roxicet addiction is a common problem among patients who use the drug over a long period. This drug is only recommended for use on a short-term basis in the treatment of mild to severe pain after undergoing an operation.

Although the drug can be legally purchased from a drug store, users need to have prescription from their doctor authorizing the transaction. People who are addicted to opiates such as heroin, morphine and methadone among other common opiates are at a greater risk of developing addiction to this particular medication, since it affects the body in a way similar to these substances.

In fact, opiate addicts suffering from withdrawal effects can suppress these symptoms by taking the drug, as it has similar narcotic effects. Addicts abusing other forms of drugs such as opium find themselves able to obtain a higher ‘kick’ after combining the substances. Nevertheless, combining a variety of drugs in this way means these patients are at a higher risk of overdosing.

The recommended maximum amount of Roxicet that should be taken in a day is 4 grams, but with continued use of the drug, patients tend to develop resistance to the substance, and this compels them to keep increasing the amount of drug used daily. This means that addicts take larger quantities of the substance than recommended by the doctor to achieve the initial effect of the drug. The frequency of using the drug also keeps increasing.

In many cases, you will realize that an individual has developed an addiction to Roxicet since they develop compulsive affinity to the drug, such that they will seek out more supplies to supplement their regular dose. Extended abuse of this medication is also a warning that the patient has become dependent on the drug.

Roxicet addiction is characterized by strong withdrawal effects that cause many patients to continue abusing the substance. In fact, it is the fear of the withdrawal effects that causes many addicts to abuse this medication. The best option when you realize that an individual is addicted to the substance is to seek professional medical assistance 800-303-2482. Medical professionals in a treatment center will be able to administer alternative drugs to help addicted users deal with the physical and psychological effects of withdrawal.

Generally, patients with a history of drug and alcohol addiction are advised to avoid using the substance. Roxicet produces effects similar to those of opiates such as opium, making relapse into addiction very easy. In people who have been abusing alcohol, the risk of developing liver cirrhosis is increased by acetaminophen in the drug.

The simplest way a patient can avoid getting addicted to Roxicet is through taking the recommended amount of the drug. The amount of the drug should not be increased or decreased without first consulting a physician. In addition, the duration of using the substance should not be extended, since this puts the user at risk of addiction.

Roxicet addiction may have greater risk in expectant and breast-feeding mothers, as this medication can produce harmful effects in the fetus or newborn.
