If you need to take oxycodone for a long time, your body can get used to it.
This is not usually a problem, but if you stop taking it suddenly you could get withdrawal symptoms such as:
- feeling agitated, anxious or nervous
- panic attacks
- difficulty sleeping
- pins and needles
- ringing in the ears
If you want to stop taking oxycodone, talk to a doctor first. Your dose can be reduced gradually so you do not get these symptoms.
