Withdrawal from Oxycontin

Oxycontin, as we all know is an addictive drug and withdrawing from it is just as serious as quitting heroin. The symptoms are felt when the body is accustomed to having Oxycontin in its system and then the drug is suddenly taken away. This is actually not a problem if you take the drug as prescribed. The problem though has stemmed from the abuse of the drug since it's release in 1995.

It has been found that most people who abuse the Oxycontin get around the time release structure of the pill by either crushing, chewing or dissolving the pill in liquid. This bypasses the time release structure and gives the rush of pleasure sought after by drug abusers.

Oxycontin withdrawal is very serious and is not to be done on your own without medical supervision. Here are some of the effects of Oxycontin withdrawal.

* Muscle and bone pain
* Restlessness
* Diarrhea
* Vomiting
* Insomnia
* Cold flashes
* Involuntary leg movements

There are also flu like symptoms when withdrawing from Oxycontin but they can be minimized or avoided altogether with medical supervision otherwise called "detoxification". Contact a reputable facility for Oxycontin withdrawal because this is not something you would want to do on your own and is not considered a "weekend thing".

I have been actively exposing Purdue Pharma (a $10 billion criminally convicted pharmaceutical company) and its 3 CEO's Michael Friedman, Howard Udell and Paul Goldenheim for criminally marketing OxyContin. I have worked on this for 6 years. In July 2007, they were charged in Federal Court with marketing OxyContin to patients and physicians as less likely to be addictive or abused. They pled guilty and were sentenced. I testified against them in Federal Court and in front of the US Senate. Their actions have resulted in an epidemic of OxyContin addiction and death in every state in the country. My work now focuses on further action being taken against them and J. David Haddox, the gatekeeper of Purdue Pharma's involvement in the criminal marketing of OxyContin. I am working with government agencies and the FDA to accomplish this next goal. Purdue Pharma has recently begun marketing OxyContin to pregnant women for pain. I have notified all Attorney Generals of this latest marketing ploy which will cause an epidemic of addiction and death to pregnant women and unborn babies. I have also filed a charge against Purdue Pharma with the FDA which they have advised me they are taking "very seriously" as well as notifying all Attorney Generals that I believe Purdue Pharma has violated their probation. We do not need further devastation of OxyContin by an out of control, greedy Purdue Pharma.
