A Vicodin addiction is a serious matter. Most individuals begin taking Vicodin because it was prescribed by a doctor to manage pain and they do not intend to develop an addiction to the drug.  Unfortunately, it doesn’t take long to develop high tolerance levels and the individual might decide to take more of the drug without consulting their physician, and this is how some addictions begin.  Addictions to painkillers like Vicodin have led thousands of individuals into a life of misery and ruin, and some have died needlessly before they could seek help.

As with any prescription drug, Vicodin can present difficult side-effects during use.  Some of these side-effects include blurred vision, constipation, difficulty breathing, mood changes, nausea and vomiting, drowsiness and headache.  These can become dangerous if the user drives an automobile or operates other machinery while taking the drug.

Withdrawal Symptoms from Vicodin Addiction

Vicodin AddictionVicodin comes in a pill-form tablet that is a mixture of hydrocodone and acetaminophen. Hydrocodone is a potent pain reliever and is a narcotic drug and  Acetaminophen is the active ingredient used in Tylenol to relieve mild pain; but when mixed with hydrocodone, increases the effects of the drug. Without realizing it, a dependency develops to the drug and stopping usage of Vicodin can suddenly lead to painful withdrawal symptoms.  This is what keeps individuals self-medicating themselves and feeding their Vicodin addiction.

Withdrawal symptoms can feel like the flu and are described as “dope sickness”.  Some common withdrawal symptoms of a Vicodin addiction include unbearable pain, sweating, diarrhea, nausea, and/or vomiting, aching body parts, depression, anxiety, and panic attacks.
