Dihydrocodeine Side Effects

Side effects are a possibility with any prescription medication. They can range from mild to uncomfortable to dangerous if misuse is a factor. Dihydrocodeine is an opiate (narcotic) medication used to treat chronic cough, pain and shortness of breath. Side effects can begin after first use or shortly thereafter. They can last a relatively short amount of time or linger for the duration of use. Each patient will experience Dihydrocodeine side effects in a different way. It can depend on the person, his or her body chemistry, the amount of Dihydrocodeine taken and whether the drug is taken in conjunction with other substances. Side effects can include nausea and dizziness, but Dihydrocodeine can also cause more serious problems such as tolerance, physical addiction, psychological addiction, withdrawal and overdose. Dihydrocodeine and other opiates tend to be habit-forming when used regularly for a period of time. It is also considered a drug of abuse, as some recreational users take it to experience a high or state of euphoria. Patients with legitimate prescriptions and those who misuse it are equally as likely to experience side effects with Dihydrocodeine. The same goes for patients on short-term and long-term therapy. Many side effects will dissipate once the body becomes used to the medication.

Dihydrocodeine Side Effects

Side effects can be physical and psychological in nature. All opioids have the ability to impair mental and physical ability. That’s why patients are urged to wait and see how they respond to the medication before driving or performing other important tasks. Each prescription comes with a print-out that details instructions on use and possible side effects, interactions and allergic reactions. Other instructions include warnings, risks and precautions. Side effects can include nausea, heartburn, vomiting, upset stomach, constipation, cramping, dizziness, drowsiness, lightheadedness, involuntary shaking or tremors, heightened irritability, behavioral changes, wild mood swings, a change in heart rate, itching, flushing, hyperactivity, headaches, dry mouth, sweating, sexual problems, skin rashes, difficult urination and difficult breathing. The above list contains side effects that are possible. Patients may not experience any of these symptoms at all. Others may experience several.

Medical Opiate Detox Can Rid You Quickly of Dihydrocodeine Addiction

Patients who regularly use the medication for an extended period of time may develop Dihydrocodeine addiction. This is serious and needs to be treated with detox to rid the body of the drug. Waismann Method treats opiate addiction with medical detox that is supervised and performed in an accredited hospital. We use intravenous medication to cleanse the Dihydrocodeine from patients’ receptors. This occurs while patients sleep lightly under sedation in a private room of our accredited hospital. The procedure takes little more than an hour and patients awaken without conscious awareness that they experienced an accelerated withdrawal. The symptoms pass while they are sedated and most people experience very minimal effects upon waking. We also have a recovery retreat for a few days, where patients are cared for around the clock through out the regulation period.

Our exclusive recovery center Domus Retreat is located in Anaheim Hills and offers treatments and amenities unmatched by any rapid opiate detox facility in the world.  In fact, Waismann Method Treatment‘s recovery success is due, in large part, to the success and care our patients receive at Domus Retreat. Ongoing support and after care for a few days is truly necessary during the journey towards complete recovery. The healing can take some time, and experts at our recovery center have made this transition easier and safer for thousands of people from all over the world.
