Hi,

Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. The simple answer to your question is that YES, oxycet is a highly addictive drug as it contains oxycodone. Oxycodone is a synthetic opioid which has effects of euphoria and elation. It can be addictive for patients if used for a prolonged period of time (that is for greater than a month). Once a patient starts to use it chronically then missing even a single dose can lead to withdrawal symptoms.

So YES, oxycet is a highly addictive drug IF it is used for more than a month usually. However using the drug for a short period of time, usually less than 2 weeks for management of painful conditions usually does not lead to addiction.

Do you have any more questions?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
