Withdrawal from Endocet: An OverviewEndocet® (oxycodone/APAP) is a prescription pain medication. The medication is a narcotic, and you may experience withdrawal symptoms if you stop taking it too quickly (especially if you have taken it for more than a few weeks). Although Endocet withdrawal can be rather uncomfortable and unpleasant, you can be assured that it is not usually life-threatening.
Over time, the body becomes accustomed to the various effects of Endocet. If you stop taking it too quickly (or even if you decrease your dose too quickly), withdrawal symptoms may occur. This can occur with chronic, legitimate use of the drug, as well as with abuse of Endocet. Withdrawal is a normal, predictable, physical response to stopping a narcotic; it is not necessarily a sign of abuse.
