There are a lot of different medications that one can take for pain out there on the market. There are over the counter medications, which normally reduce inflammation and are good for the heart but can be bad on the stomach. There are natural remedies, which are essential oils, foods, and herbs. Then you have your pharmaceutical options, which are normally non-narcotic to start, but then move to be narcotic if a stronger medication is needed. There are a bunch of different pain medications that a person can be prescribed to, and most of them are controlled substances. Oxycodone, which everyone confuses for Oxycontin, is essentially Percocet. Oxycontin is also Oxycodone, however, it is Oxycodone HCl.
People begin to have issues when they are one medication like this. These pills can be very addictive. They can help to manage pain successfully when they are taken properly, however, people can abuse them and it creates a problem. Pain medications like Oxycodone have a number of side effects that can cause a person’s issues at work.
Serious side effects
There are quite a few side effects to Oxycodone but the main ones are dizziness, drowsiness, sleepiness, lightheadedness, and slow reaction time. This can be horrible for people who work around any kind of human being. People that drive can cause accidents, people at manufacturing plants can cause incidents, and people in the finance industry can make mistakes that cost other people millions. There’s no if, and, or buts about it, a person who is taking a medication like this and abusing it can be a great danger to themselves and the other people in their vicinity.
Less serious side effects
The other side effects of this medication are constipation, nausea, vomiting, upset stomach, itching, headache, blurred vision, dry mouth, sweating, and decreases in the ability to feel pain. These are the less serious side effects and are less likely to impede on job performance, but even some of these can affect a person adversely at work. These side effects are more about the individual than the other people they work with, but can still pose an issue on the job site. A decrease in the ability to feel pain can be very detrimental to a person who plays sports or works in construction. If there is an accident during one of these jobs, how is the person to know that they are even hurt if they cannot feel it?
Essentially, this is the reason most workplaces that can be dangerous in some way issue urine screens prior to employment and randomly through it. This is the only way to make sure that employees are doing everything that they are supposed to be doing when it comes to the owner’s business. Ovus Medical has come up with a way for employers to make sure that their employees are doing what they are supposed to do and maintaining sobriety.
