The Best Way to Get Off Hydrocodone

Table of Contents

hydrocodone detox

Patients are constantly looking for the best way to get off Hydrocodone. Hydrocodone is a potentially habit-forming opiate used for pain relief. It acts on opiate receptors in the brain to provide moderate to severe pain relief. Hydrocodone is often prescribed in combination with acetaminophen, marketed as Norco, Lortab, and Vicodin.

People who take hydrocodone for an extended period of time or at high doses risk developing a physical dependency. This is when the body comes to rely on the medication and no longer responds to the prescribed dose. Once a tolerance builds up, more and more of the drug is required to achieve pain relief. Many people escalate use at this point, and it’s easy for an addiction to develop. This is when people are compelled physically and/or psychologically to keep using the drug despite increasingly negative consequences. At this point, getting off hydrocodone is difficult unless medical professionals are involved.

There are a Number of Options to Get Off Hydrocodone

To get off hydrocodone, some people may try to quit cold turkey, which can be extremely uncomfortable and painful, especially if the user has been long-term. This can result in seizures and other life-threatening complications. Some people have been successful with gradually tapering their use of the drug. This can take a long time, and some people find it difficult to wean from hydrocodone fully.

Many detox and rehab facilities offer opiate replacement therapy with Suboxone or methadone. This approach to replacement therapy was originally intended to keep heroin addicts from resorting to crime to get their fix. This is now a mainstream approach to opiate addiction but has its own problems. These drugs are opiates, too, meaning they may also cause a dependency and require another detox. Replacing one addiction with another is not the goal of Waismann Method’s opiate detox. We aim to treat opiate dependency once and for all safely and humanely.
