Vicodin is a name-brand prescription painkiller in the hydrocodone class, and is mixed with acetaminophen. Painkillers such as Vicodin have risen to be among the most abused drugs in the nation, ranging from teenagers through older adults.

The Dangers of Vicodin

Prescription painkillers like Vicodin have a high potential for abuse, and some of the dangers of hydrocodone include: nausea, vomiting, constipation, drowsiness, dizziness, lightheadedness, fuzzy thinking, anxiety, abnormally happy or abnormally sad mood, dry throat, difficulty urinating, rash, itching, narrowing of the pupils, slowed or irregular breathing and chest tightness.

Unfortunately many people are prescribed Vicodin and are not fully aware of the potential for dependency. When people take opiates for any extended period of time then their bodies start to become someone dependent, and when they stop taking it they can become sick due to withdrawal. This is when most people get the urge or craving to continue taking the drug - to avoid the withdrawal symptoms and not experience the pain - but prolonged use only worsens the condition by also generating a tolerance to the drug, which requires more to be taken. If you or someone you know needs help to stop using Vicodin, we can help.
