Physical Effects of Continued Percodan Abuse and Addiction

There are common side effects associated with Percodan abuse and addiction. These side effects worsen as an addiction continues and increases in severity. Because Percodan is a hepatic medication (meaning it is processed and ingested through the liver), there is a greater risk for liver disease or failure the longer Percodan is abused. Heart conditions may develop as a product of overuse of Percodan. Heart rhythm abnormalities or murmurs may occur due to extended use. Shallow or difficulty breathing may be a sign of deteriorating health, because the oxycodone and acetaminophen in Percodan work on the central nervous system and can stop function altogether in severe cases.

The emotional effects are the hardest to overcome and the main reason many people relapse. If the emotional triggers of addiction are not properly dealt with an addition will continue to worsen despite attempts to physically get clean. There is a point at which an addiction becomes a chronic disease. Through intensive inpatient programs and continued aftercare even a daunting illness like addiction can become manageable.
