What are the signs of snorted Percocet addiction?

by Concerned

What are some signs of a Percocet addiction where the abuser snorts the drug? Would a nose sore that doesn't heal or other skin sores (not track marks) be signs? How about an overall pale color to skin and inability to gain weight? Would these be more likely to be a case of someone who snorts the drug or could be/likely to be someone who just abuses the drug?

Yes these seem consistent with opiate addiction.

Dear Concerned,

The signs you've listed are consistent with opiate addiction, and the issues with the nose are consistent with snorting the drug.

Percocet is a combination of Oxycodone and Acetaminophen. Snorting it is simply a quicker way to receive the high that the opiate delivers.

Pale skin, no being able to gain weight, nose problems are all symptoms of opiate addiction. One thing that it's important to realize, snorting opiates is no different from injecting them, they are just as additive and harmful either way.

Hope that answers your questions,

Debbie
