I could add a dozen more side-effects, serious or less, but i think the list above communicates the danger of having a daily Percocet pill. In Oklahoma, Percocet, Vicodin and Oxycontin have grown in popularity over the past years, from the lower social classes to the richest. The Oklahoma athletic scene in particular has been affected by painkiller abuse. Taken from a news article:

Austin Box might be the among the most well-known victim of the prescription painkiller deadly dilemma in Oklahoma. Box, a 22-year-old linebacker for the University of Oklahoma, died from a variety of prescription painkillers in his system. Oxycodone, hydrocodone and morphine were just three of the six prescription medications discovered on autopsy following the young man's death in May.

No one was aware of the football standout's prescription drug use. If an individual who has such a diverse support system could experience this type of drug misuse and abuse, is it any wonder that the average person -- with far less oversight -- can develop a problem with taking prescription painkillers?

State autopsy data shows the most prolific killers are the painkillers hydrocodone and oxycodone, often in combination with the anti-anxiety drug alprazolam.

In 2010, hydrocodone was a factor in 153 overdose deaths in Oklahoma, followed by oxycodone at 144 deaths, according to the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs Control.

Both are opioid painkillers, chemical cousins of heroin and morphine. Pain meds containing hydrocodone are marketed under the brand names Lortab and Vicodin. Oxycodone is the main ingredient in Percocet and OxyContin. Alprazolam, marketed as Xanax, contributed to 139 overdose deaths.

Other prescription painkillers accounted for significant numbers of deaths. Methadone, used to help wean addicts off other narcotics, as well as to treat chronic pain, contributed to 99 overdoses. Morphine contributed to 85 and fentanyl to 53.

Nonprescription street drugs were noted in the deaths of 147 Oklahomans. Meth was present in 99 overdose victims and cocaine in 48. The number of fatal drug overdoses in Oklahoma more than doubled in the past 10 years, climbing to 739 in 2010, according to the state medical examiner’s office. The number of drug overdose deaths was higher than the number of motor vehicle fatalities, which totaled 683.
