Roxicet (Roxy) Rehab

Victory Bay Drug Guide

Roxicet (otherwise known as “Roxy”) is a brand name drug that combines oxycodone and acetaminophen. It’s prescribed to patients who are in need of moderate to severe pain relief, but can also give users a feeling of euphoria that causes them to use the drug recreationally.

Roxicet and Percocet are brand names of the same opioid painkiller that affects the central nervous system and changes the brain’s perception of pain. These types of painkillers are easy for patients to become addicted to and accounted for about 10 percent of Americans that had a substance use disorder in 2015.

Roxicet Abuse


Roxicet tablets can be taken orally, crushed and snorted, or dissolved and injected and while each method of use may affect an individual differently, they all produce common symptoms that can lead to Roxicet addiction. These symptoms include:

  • An overall relaxation
  • Increased happiness
  • A state of euphoria
  • Relief of anxiety
  • A warming sensation
