It does not take much time to develop a Vicodin addiction. One of the more common prescription painkillers, Vicodin is a combination of acetaminophen and hydrocodone. A potent narcotic, it can be habit-forming and thus, highly addictive. Even those who follow the prescriber’s orders can be at risk of becoming addicted to the drug. Because of its effectiveness as a pain reliever, those who suffer from chronic debilitating pain often tend to start using it habitually.
Clinically known as hydrocodone, Vicodin is an opiate that was created to relieve physical pain by altering the reactions of the brain and body to pain. Vicodin can potentially alter the neurotransmitters in the brain, so in order to avoid addiction, extreme caution must be used. Dependence on the drug is psychological and physical in nature.
Vicodin withdrawal symptoms may include night sweats, confusion, anger, nausea and hot or cold sweats. Often during Vicodin addiction treatment, patients are slowly weaned from the drug by reducing consumption amounts and closely monitoring them during the process.
