Oxycodone is a prescription opioid known as an analgesic narcotic because it is used in the medical field. This drug sends signals to your central nervous system, specifically affecting your opioid receptors. When you are in pain, oxycodone intercepts and disrupts the nerves sending pain signals from the brain to the body. By interrupting and disrupting these nerve signals, oxycodone tricks the brain into thinking you are not in pain.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css_animation="" row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" angled_section="no" text_align="left" background_image_as_pattern="without_pattern"][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_empty_space height="6px"][vc_single_image image="2747" img_size="400x380" alignment="center" qode_css_animation=""][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text]This is how all pain medications work, but oxycodone is more powerful and effective than most. Eventually, oxycodone can severely alter your nerve signals and receptors, making your brain think it needs oxycodone to function normally. Additionally, when you use oxycodone for a prolonged period, you can get addicted to the euphoria and relief you experience. You may also start developing a tolerance to oxycodone and have to take increasingly larger doses to achieve the desired effect.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css_animation="" row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" angled_section="no" text_align="left" background_image_as_pattern="without_pattern"][vc_column][vc_column_text]When this happens, you become physically or mentally reliant on oxycodone, resulting in a growing need and eventual addiction.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css_animation="" row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" angled_section="no" text_align="left" background_image_as_pattern="without_pattern"][vc_column][vc_separator type="normal" transparency="0.5" thickness="0.5" up="40" down="20"][vc_column_text] Common oxycodone withdrawal symptoms Oxycodone withdrawal happens because your body has become dependent on the euphoria and pleasure you experience when you ingest the drug.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css_animation="" row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" angled_section="no" text_align="left" background_image_as_pattern="without_pattern"][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_empty_space height="6px"][vc_column_text]A sign of addiction is when you cannot control your need and desire to take oxycodone, even though it is causing harm to your mind or body.

Treatment plans are tailored to the individual's needs and can involve medications, counseling, or other forms of support. During detox, professionals will assess the patient's physical and mental condition and develop a personalized plan for treatment and recovery. This plan may include medication, counseling, support groups, and other lifestyle changes to help patients manage their addiction and break free from Gabapentin. Professional detox can also help the patient manage the cravings that can be associated with Gabapentin withdrawal. After the detox period, individuals can begin working toward long-term recovery. Long-term strategies focus on relapse prevention, which includes ongoing therapy, attending support groups, and living a healthy lifestyle. Individuals in recovery need to seek out a supportive environment and practice self-care regularly. In addition, those in recovery should strive to build meaningful connections with others in the community and find activities that provide fulfillment and joy. Recovery takes time and patience but is worth it to regain health and achieve lasting sobriety.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="30px"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css_animation="" row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" angled_section="no" text_align="left" background_image_as_pattern="without_pattern" z_index="" background_color="#f7f7f7" side_padding="7" padding_top="40"...

Lexapro (escitalopram) is a commonly prescribed medication used to treat depression, anxiety, and other mental health disorders. Lexapro is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), which means it increases the amount of serotonin in the brain, a neurotransmitter known to regulate mood and emotions. While this medication can be an effective treatment for many people, it can also be addictive. When abused, people can experience severe withdrawal symptoms after trying to stop using it. Understanding these withdrawal symptoms and how to cope with them is important.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css_animation="" row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" angled_section="no" text_align="left" background_image_as_pattern="without_pattern"][vc_column][vc_separator type="normal" transparency="0.5" thickness="0.5" up="40" down="20"][vc_column_text] Physical symptoms When someone stops taking Lexapro, they can experience physical symptoms of withdrawal, such as headaches, nausea, and vomiting.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css_animation="" row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" angled_section="no" text_align="left" background_image_as_pattern="without_pattern"][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_empty_space height="5px"][vc_single_image image="2596" img_size="full" qode_css_animation=""][vc_empty_space height="5px"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text]Other physical symptoms include dizziness, insomnia, tremors, and muscle aches. People may also experience heightened sensitivity to light or sound in some cases. People who abruptly stop taking Lexapro may also experience more severe symptoms, such as seizures or delirium. These physical symptoms can vary in intensity and duration from person to person. It is also important to know that some of these symptoms may last several weeks after stopping Lexapro. It is important to note any physical symptoms that arise after stopping the medication and to seek medical attention if necessary.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css_animation="" row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" angled_section="no" text_align="left" background_image_as_pattern="without_pattern"][vc_column][vc_separator type="normal" transparency="0.5" thickness="0.5" up="40" down="20"][vc_column_text] Psychological symptoms Psychological symptoms of Lexapro withdrawal can be uncomfortable and difficult to cope with.
