Xodol Abuse

Table of Contents

The regular or prolonged use of opiate painkillers can lead to abuse which in turn can lead to dependence. It’s important to know the signs of abuse so you can evaluate your use and determine if professional medical detox is the right solution. Xodol, a prescription medication, is the combination of hydrocodone and acetaminophen. Hydrocodone is a narcotic pain reliever and has the potential to be habit forming. Xodol is used to treat moderate to severe pain. This combination is also marketed as Lorcet, Lortab, Vicodin, Norco and Zydone. As with all of these medications, Xodol abuse can develop quickly with regular use. Once this happens, the body no longer registers the medications’ effects at prescribed dosages. Increasing the dose or escalating use can be dangerous and lead to addiction. Using the medication outside of its recommended uses can be considered abuse. It’s important to know a pattern of abuse or compulsive use can be halted. The Waismann Method of rapid detox has a premiere Xodol rapid detox program that has seen unparalleled success over the last decade.

Signs That Point to Xodol Abuse

Xodol can be abused by patients using it for legitimate therapeutic reasons and recreational users seeking sedation or a state of euphoria. If your use of Xodol has become excessive, or if you are consumed by obtaining and consuming it, it’s time to seek help. Other signs of Xodol abuse can include tampering with the medication in ways that promote rapid release of the hydrocodone. This can include chewing, breaking or crushing the pill. Combining it with other substances to heighten effects is a bad idea because Xodol is a central nervous system depressant. Other medications that have this effect, including alcohol, sedative/hypnotics, tranquilizers, street drugs and other opiates, should not be used with Xodol. Opioid medications are also subject to criminal diversion. It’s easily diverted and sold on the black market. Common actions among abusers can include doctor-shopping to secure several supplies, bogus call-ins for refills and falsification of prescriptions.

There is Safe, Humane Detox Available for Xodol Addiction

Xodol abuse can quickly escalate and result in physical and/or psychological addiction and overdose. The Waismann Method knows you didn’t intend to have this problem. That’s why we offer a safe, confidential and supportive environment. We won’t shame you into recovery. Our procedure is performed in an accredited hospital under close supervision of doctors and other professionals. The Waismann Method of rapid detox uses medicine to cleanse Xodol from patients’ opiate receptors. This can happens when anesthesia assisted rapid detox is indicated and patients sleep under sedation administered by board-certified anesthesiologists. The withdrawal phase is accelerated and occurs while the patient is sedated. They awake opiate-free without awareness of withdrawal symptoms that occurred while they were out. We don’t use the opiate replacements Suboxone or methadone in our treatment. The entire hospital stay is a few days, compared with much longer requirements with many other drug treatment programs. Our transitional living facility, Domus Retreat, is included for a few days to all our patients with the possibility of extension for those who want to continue recovery.
