Endocet is a narcotic pain reliever that contains a combination of oxycodone, a powerful opioid, and acetaminophen, an analgesic/antipyretic which decreases certain chemicals in the brain and the experience of pain. Acetaminophen works to enhance the effects of oxycodone. Endocet is used to relieve moderate to severe pain and is administered in tablet form (a variety of strengths), capsule and liquid form.

Symptoms of Withdrawal from Endocet
Abruptly stopping the ingestion of Endocet, or an arbitrary alteration in a lesser dosage can bring on withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal, while most of the time, is not life threatening, can be extremely uncomfortable. Feelings of paranoia, anxiety or some types of hallucinations may also accompany the withdrawal. It is recommended that a patient wishing to detox from Endocet seek medical detox treatment and that both the physiological and psychological condition be closely monitored by a physician certified in addiction medicine. Detox should immediately be followed by addiction treatment to teach the addict how to handle daily stressors, reasons for addictive behavior, medication management if needed, relapse prevention and more.
