Is Stadol addicting?
Stadol® is an addictive substance and may be habit forming. Within a few weeks of consistently taking Stadol® ,the body adjusts to the presence of the drug and a tolerance develops. As a tolerance to Stadol® develops, the body requires more and more Stadol® to relieve the symptoms it was prescribed to treat. Taking higher doses of Stadol® can increase the risk of experiencing uncomfortable side effects.
While the health consequences of developing a Stadol® addiction are serious and potentially life threatening, the social consequences of the drug are equally disturbing.
