Roxicodone is a highly addictive prescription narcotic pain reliever. Roxys contain the active ingredient oxycodone hydrocloride, which provides instant pain relief. Opiates are known for dependence, severe withdrawal symptoms and harmful consequences. Painkillers, like Roxicodone can be taken orally, but many addicts melt the drug down. Roxys can then be smoked or injected.
Mixing Roxys with alcohol or other drugs can be a dangerous combination. The effects of a drug like alcohol combined with any painkiller can cause nausea, vomiting, fatigue, loss of coordination and irregular heartbeat. More importantly, combining painkillers with benzodiazepines can be a lethal concoction. People are usually unaware of the real effects and health risks associated with prescription drugs. We feel that because these substances are found in our medicine cabinets, they are therefore safe and can not cause real harm. Unfortunately, this is just not the case.
The Food and Drug Administration found that, “from 1998 to 2005 the side effects and deaths related to prescription drugs almost tripled to 90,000 incidents.”
