Due to the effects of Vicodin, it is one of the most commonly prescribed medications following a surgery, an injury, or for chronic pain disorder.  For these same effects, Vicodin is also popular on the street as a recreational drug.

Either method of getting the drug can lead to abuse if any of the following signs of dependence are present:

  • Taking larger amounts than directed
  • Visiting more than one doctor to get a prescription (doctor shopping)
  • Needing to take more of the drug to get the same effects (tolerance)
  • Feeling guilty about the amounts of the drug taken
  • Having symptoms associated with withdrawal

Most Common Side Effects Of Vicodin

Effects Of VicodinA person may become dependent on the effects of Vicodin within a few weeks of taking the drug.  Over time, the individual does not feel they can function properly without taking the drug.  Using Vicodin is like using heroin, the euphoria or “high” that it produces tricks the brain into thinking that it is normal behavior.  Therefore, the brain requires more of the drug to satisfy that feeling.

The most common side effects of Vicodin include:

  • Anxiousness
  • Dizziness
  • Drowsiness
  • Nausea and Vomiting
  • Upset Stomach or Constipation
  • Headache
  • Mood changes
  • Blurred vision
  • Dry mouth
  • Anxiety
  • Lightheadedness
  • Urination problems

Effects Of Vicodin Withdrawal

Some examples of withdrawals symptoms are as follows:

  • Agitation
  • Insomnia
  • Night sweats
  • Tremors
  • Nausea and Vomiting
  • Gastrointestinal issues
  • Fever and Chills
