Lortab withdrawal symptoms associated with addiction can be difficult to manage without professional medical detox. Lortab is the combination of hydrocodone, a narcotic painkiller, and acetaminophen, a non-narcotic pain reliever. It is used to treat moderate to severe pain. Opiates including hydrocodone can be habit-forming, beginning with the development of a tolerance and possibly leading to physical and psychological dependence. They also carry the risk of causing other health problems and overdose. Because of the potency of opiates, the associated addiction is also said to be a relapsing condition. The right detox program can medically manage withdrawal symptoms, slashing the odds of a relapse. A physical addiction to Lortab is present if withdrawal symptoms develop when use is stopped suddenly or gradually decreased. The fear of withdrawal tends to keep many patients using Lortab. The Waismann Method of rapid detox can medically manage withdrawal, effectively eliminating the awareness of most symptoms.
Withdrawal Symptoms Associated with Lortab Withdrawal
The discomfort and pain of withdrawal can begin within hours of the last use of Lortab. Symptoms can last days or weeks, though the experience of withdrawal is a very individual one. Intense physical and psychological craving is one of the most obvious signs of Lortab withdrawal. Other symptoms can range from mild to severe, depending on factors including the patient’s biochemistry and how prolonged and severe the addiction is. These symptoms include mood changes, agitation, tremors, runny nose, chills, sleeplessness, anxiousness, yawning, sneezing, restlessness, weakness, flu-like symptoms, depression, hallucination, delirium, cramps, diarrhea, sweating, vomiting, muscle and bone pain, confusion, extreme irritability and muscle spasms.
