While each user’s Percocet withdrawal symptoms will vary according to their history of use and their ability to metabolize the drug, some of the more common include body pain and cramping, fatigue, stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, joint and muscle aches, hallucinations, depression, anxiety and more. These symptoms can range from mild to severe and develop even in the most cautious and diligent patients. If you or your someone you care about is experiencing these or any other symptoms related to your Percocet use, contact your prescribing physician or seek treatment immediately to ensure the symptoms don’t escalate.
Like other types of opioids withdrawal, Percocet withdrawal is generally divided into early, acute and protracted. For the most serious addicts, symptoms can occur in as little as a few hours after use. The early stages of Percocet withdrawal usually last a day or two before they reach their peak. After about 72 hours, symptoms are at their worst and withdrawal reaches its peak stage. After a few days of acute withdrawal, symptoms generally start to taper but can still linger for weeks or even months. Even after clinical treatment, patients may require ongoing care for their long-term withdrawal symptoms.
Patients who attempt to overcome these symptoms on their own run a heightened risk of relapse and subsequent withdrawal. The pervasive and legal nature of Percocet and other prescription opioids has, over the years, led many to believe that they are somehow less harmful or less addictive than illicit opioids like heroin. Nothing can be further from the truth. Prescription painkillers like Percocet have led to thousands of deaths each year and create serious health and quality of life issues for thousands more. They create serious and profound changes in brain chemistry and can serious disrupt users’ lives. It’s imperative that you have the right kind of help with withdrawal.
