Percocet, Molly, Percocet ... Just Because They Sing It In a Song, Doesn't Mean It's Okay to Take

"According to the 2014 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, approximately 6.5 million Americans reported taking prescription medication for non-medical uses—a number that represents 2.5% of the national population. More than 4 million of these individuals abusing prescription drugs reported abuse of pain relievers."

What is Percocet? Percocet is the combination of an over the counter common found household pain reliever and fever reducer, and an opioid analgesic, Acetaminophen and Oxycodone. The attraction can most often be contributed to the lethargic euphoric feeling, heightened pleasure, and the feelings of relaxation; however, it should be known that the side effects of Oxycodone are similar to that of heroin and morphine. No bueno.

Let's cut to the chase, overdose can lead to death. Too much acetaminophen will DESTROY your liver. JUST STOP IT, IT'S NOT WORTH IT! If you feel you are benefiting an any way, you most likely are trying to self medicate another medical issue that needs attending. I am sure a medical professional can get you on a much better path to comfort and recovery as the withdrawal symptoms from opioids are vicious, they include but are not limited to: panic attacks, flu-like symptoms, dizziness and sever muscle pain or weakness. ... Yea that's the goal.
