Hydrocodone Detox

Hydrocodone pill bottleAlthough detoxing from hydrocodone is difficult, as it is an opioid and is highly addictive. Using medically-assisted treatment, a hydrocodone addiction is possible to overcome, with relatively low relapse rates and fast recovery times. The typical detox period for hydrocodone abusers lasts 4 to 7 days.

The Dangers of Hydrocodone

Hydrocodone is especially common due to its use in the medical field. Doctors often prescribe hydrocodone to patients who suffer from chronic pains or have recently undergone surgical procedures. Because hydrocodone is so potent, people who have been prescribed hydrocodone often begin misusing and abusing it by:

  • Taking more than the prescribed amount
  • Using it more frequently than was prescribed
  • Mixing it with other substances to enhance the effects
  • Continuing use after their prescription has run out

Hydrocodone misuse and abuse are inspired by the positive effects that the substance brings, including increased feelings of well-being and relaxation, and reduced levels of worry and stress. Over time, the addicted person’s habits will have severe negative effects on their overall health and wellness, including:

  • Muscle weakness and fatigue
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Bowel obstruction, trouble urinating, and other digestive issues
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Liver damage
  • And more

The Difficulties of Hydrocodone Detox

Opiate addictions are notoriously easy to develop and difficult to overcome. Hydrocodone is no exception to this. The serious short-term physical and mental benefits that hydrocodone brings combined with the excruciating withdrawal symptoms that may last a month or longer are enough to compel hydrocodone abusers to relapse frequently and prioritize their substance abuse over other important things in their lives. When people begin to abstain from using hydrocodone, they are likely to experience the following symptoms:

  • Fever
  • Hallucinations
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Diarrhea
  • And more
