How will I know if I’m addicted?

If you’re addicted to oxycodone, you may find it difficult to stop taking it or feel you need to take it more often than necessary.

If you stop taking it suddenly you may suffer from withdrawal symptoms. These include:

  • feeling agitated, anxious or nervous
  • panic attacks
  • difficulty sleeping
  • shaking
  • pins and needles
  • ringing in the ears
  • sweating

Talk to a doctor if you’re worried about addiction or if you want to know more about how to prevent withdrawal symptoms.
