Percodan Withdrawal

Percodan is a narcotic pain reliever that combines aspirin and oxycodone and is prescribed for the treatment of moderate to severe pain.

  • Aches and pains
  • Anxiety
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Diarrhea
  • Goose bumps
  • Hallucinations
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia
  • Loss of appetite
  • Mood swings
  • Nausea
  • Pain
  • Fever chills
  • Sleep difficulties
  • Sweating
  • Tremors
  • Upper respiratory symptoms

  • Airway constriction
  • Breathing difficulties and wheezing
  • Hives, itching, rash
  • Swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue

Percodan Overdose

When a person is prescribed pain medication, it is rarely with the intent to abuse the drug; however, self-medication for physical pain, emotional pain, misdiagnosed depression, anxiety or trauma typically provokes abuse. Abuse can lead to a dangerous overdose.

Seek help immediately if you or a loved one experiences any of the following symptoms of an opiate overdose:

  • Chest pain
  • Coma
  • Fever
  • Irregular, slow heartbeat
  • Lack of responsiveness
  • Muscle stiffness or tremor
  • Pinpointed pupils
