Find Addiction Rehabs (FAR), a company based in Boca Raton, FL that offers helpful information on addiction treatment and how it is being made more available to those who need it, has released another set of articles about opioid drugs and their effective treatment. One article serves as a guide on the risks of taking an M365 white oval pill, which is one of the most prevalent prescription drugs in the US. The second article takes a look at how long Percocet, a painkiller containing oxycodone instead of hydrocodone, can linger in urine and other information related to its half-life in the body. And finally, the third article examines how fentanyl can cause withdrawal symptoms and how these can persist for a period of time.
The rising popularity of the M365 pill for providing temporary pain relief has been observed to contribute to an increase in cases of substance abuse and addiction with this potent drug. These pills are opioid analgesics that are a form of modified codeine molecule with a similar structure to other opioids. M365 is usually in the form of hydrocodone and 325 mg of acetaminophen and it can be obtained in its generic form or as Vicodin. It is the hydrocodone that significantly increase the addictive potential of this pill. While it is so effective for treating severe to moderately severe pain, it is possible to develop an addiction to this medication even with a prescription for it, particularly it is being used in higher doses or for longer periods of time than it was originally prescribed to them.
Meanwhile, Percocet is a prescription drug composed of the opioid oxycodone and acetaminophen. It is typically prescribed by doctors to patients suffering from moderate to severe pain. The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) classifies Percocet as a Schedule II drug, which means that it is acceptable for medical application but has a high risk of abuse. Even with a prescription, a person who is regularly taking Percocet will have to take it in higher doses and more frequently over time to get the same effects. The half-life of a drug is how long it will take half of the drug to be removed from the body and how long it will take for withdrawal symptoms to take effect. Since oxycodone is an immediate-release and short-acting drug, its half-life is also short. In general, it will require 3 to 4 hours for oxycodone to leave the body. And while the effects of Percocet will typically last for 4 to 6 hours, approximately 20 hours is the amount of time Percocet remains detectable in the body.
Fentanyl, meanwhile, is an incredibly strong synthetic opioid that is about 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine. While it can be obtained through a prescription, it is usually acquired via illegal drug dealers on the street. And many other illegal drugs are typically laced with fentanyl and sold as counterfeit pills. Fentanyl is currently one of the top causes of overdose in the country. When taken orally, the effects of fentanyl can take effect within 15 to 30 minutes and the effects can wear off after four to six hours. However, fentanyl may still be detected in the body for a few days after taking it.
