Symptoms of Withdrawal from Endocet
Abruptly stopping Endocet or changing the dosage can bring on withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal is usually not life threatening, but can be extremely uncomfortable. Feelings of paranoia, anxiety or some types of hallucinations may accompany the withdrawal. Patients who want to detox from Endocet should seek medical detox treatment and both the physiological and psychological condition should be 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.
