Conzip, like all synthetic opioids, can be highly addictive. Individuals with a family history of substance misuse are typically more prone to developing an opioid misuse disorder, but all patients are susceptible to developing opioid dependency.

The minimum effective dose should be used to reduce the risk of adverse effects when taking Conzip. Conzip is not indicated for the treatment of short-term pain.

Conzip Signs, Symptoms And Side Effects
Conzip is an analgesic opioid that’s used to treat moderate to severe chronic pain. It is an extended-release formula of the drug tramadol. Extended-release medications carry a higher misuse potential due to their generally higher drug content.

Conzip comes in 100 mg, 200 mg and 300 mg tablets. Daily doses of tramadol medications should never exceed 300 mg due to the risk of overdose and death. The time-released feature of Conzip can be bypassed by crushing the tablet to snort or inject it. This greatly increases the risk of severe respiratory failure and fatal overdose.

Conzip achieves its pain-relieving effects by acting on opioid receptors in the body and inhibiting the reuptake of two critical neurotransmitters in the brain: norepinephrine and serotonin.

Symptoms of opioid misuse include constricted pupils, lethargy, drowsiness and chronic fatigue. The individual may consistently have difficulty staying asleep during normal waking hours. As the individual becomes more dependent on Conzip, they may seek out other opioids to achieve the same level of euphoria.

The patient may engage in drug-seeking behaviors, such as visiting multiple doctors in search of prescriptions to supply their frequent drug use. Emergency room staff are trained to look for signs of opioid misuse. Concerted efforts are being made amongst hospitals in the US to track the distribution of controlled substances to specific patients between hospitals and pharmacies.

As opioid dependency progresses, the patient may begin to lose interest in activities that they formerly enjoyed. They may socialize less or switch friend groups in favor of people who have more direct connections to drug sources. Roughly five percent of people who are introduced to prescription pain medications in a medical setting go on to use street heroin at some point.


Conzip Signs, Symptoms And Side Effects
Long-term use of opioids like Conzip is known to result in a condition called adrenal insufficiency. Adrenal insufficiency is characterized by an inability of the adrenal gland to produce enough of the stress hormone cortisol to keep up with the body’s demands. Symptoms of adrenal insufficiency include chronic fatigue, headaches and mood swings.

Conzip use can also lead to chronic constipation and reduced motility of the smooth muscles in the intestinal tract. The digestion of foods may become delayed, leading to an obstruction of the intestine. Other side effects of Conzip use may include respiratory depression, bradycardia (low heart rate), hypotension (low blood pressure) and syncope (fainting).
