Talwin Addiction and Abuse
A person taking Talwin should not mix it with other narcotics or alcohol. Combining Talwin with alcohol greatly increases the risk of respiratory depression since both substances slow the function of vital organs.
Talwin may cause minor side effects in some patients. Common side effects of Talwin are constipation, headaches, dizziness, drowsiness, nausea, vomiting, and sweating.
If someone begins misusing Talwin in such ways, it’s important to get help from a doctor or professional detox center.
Mixing Talwin with other substances is dangerous and may cause severe side effects. Potential serious side effects of Talwin include:
- Shallow breathing (weak breaths)
- Slowed heart rate
- Extreme dizziness
- Severe muscle weakness
If any of the aforementioned side effects occur, seek immediate medical attention.
Talwin addiction often causes behavioral changes. People may start to display mood changes such as angry outbursts, irritability, lack of sleep, and a noticeable decrease in their interest in other activities (work, school, hobbies).
