Does Taking OxyContin Lead to Addiction?

“Many people on OxyContin and Oxycodone prescription drugs don’t even realize that they are addicted” reports JF Dubreuil of Narconon Trois-Rivieres.
Feb. 11, 2011 - PRLog -- Does taking OxyContin lead to addiction?  To be addictive, prescription drugs, such as OxyContin, have to be both chemically rewarding, such as giving pain relief, and experienced by the body as being toxic.

When holistic methods of pain relief are used there is no physical addiction because there is no toxicity.

Even the lowest dose 10mg of OxyContin is toxic. By the time you get to 40mg -80mg doses – for anyone not already a prescription drugs junkie – one capsule of 40mg - 80mg of oxy can very easily kill you, as it has many people already. After much ado Purdue Pharma finally withdrew their most toxic OxyContin prescription drugs from the market –they came in 160mg doses (try taking 32 Percocet tablets at once). The new oxy packaging would not appear to do anything to reduce OxyContin addiction, sending already addicted users in search of stronger drugs.

As the body fights off toxic prescription drugs they start to lose their efficacy. You need to take more of the prescription drug OxyContin to get the same effect on pain. As you start to increase the dose – so do the adverse side effects in other parts of the body. “Many people on oxy prescription drugs don’t even realize that they are addicted” reports JF Dubreuil of Narconon Trois-Rivieres.

The downside of using increasing amounts of prescription drugs is that your body keeps adjusting its biochemical patterns. If you fail to maintain prescription drugs levels, the body does a double back flip as it tries to re-regulate. This causes the pain of disequilibrium that we call withdrawal.

In holistic terms the pain of drug withdrawal is the very first symptom of the body beginning to recover from toxic prescription drugs such as oxy. It is easy to see the double bind that doctors put us in when they please big pharma and merrily offer us increasingly powerful prescription drugs for our pain.

Negative emotional feelings are expressed as pain in the body – stomach tight, heart pains and headaches, perhaps a constricted, dry throat. Symptoms of anxiety and depression disappear when you use a CNS pain blocker such as OxyContin. So, users of prescription drugs, like oxy, might find that they develop a psychological need for OxyContin as well as using it for their physical pain. OxyContin is physically and emotionally addictive.

Does taking OxyContin lead to addiction – yes, you will have some level of OxyContin side effects which turn into addiction as from day one. Full recovery will depend upon getting drug free comprehensive help for emotional problems or pain – just as soon as you can.
