Developing a physical and/or psychological dependence upon opiates is not something to feel shame or guilt over. It’s become a growing problem in many communities due in part to the addictive nature of opiates and the increase in the number of prescriptions being written. As with other opiate-derived medications, Tussionex causes withdrawal symptoms once use is stopped abruptly. Opiate withdrawal can be brutal to manage without professional medical intervention. Tussionex contains hydrocodone, a narcotic cough suppressant and painkiller. The hydrocodone is combined with chlorpheniramine, an antihistamine that reduces the natural chemical histamine produced by the body. The right drug treatment program will provide a safe detox, medical management of withdrawal and a humane approach. The Waismann Method of rapid detox offers all three and never uses shame or guilt to achieve recovery. We know most of our patients didn’t intend to become addicted.
Commonly Reported Tussionex Withdrawal Symptoms
A Tussionex dependence can develop once regular use leads to a tolerance. Once the drug’s effects are diminished, many escalate use to achieve results. A physical dependence is evidenced by the presence of withdrawal symptoms once use is stopped abruptly. Symptoms can develop within hours of last use and persist for days or weeks. There is a wide range of symptoms associated with opiate withdrawal syndrome. Strong physical and psychological cravings are obvious signs. Other symptoms are not limited to but can include mood changes, agitation, tremors, runny nose, chills, sneezing, yawning, sleeplessness, anxiousness, restlessness, weakness, flu-like symptoms, depression, hallucination, delirium, cramps, diarrhea, sweating, vomiting, muscle and bone pain, confusion, extreme irritability and muscle spasms. It is not wise to attempt detox on your own. Medical professionals can help manage symptoms and prevent complications such as seizures.
There is Safe, Reliable and Confidential Treatment for Tussionex Addiction
Seeking medical help for Tussionex addiction is the responsible choice in terms of safety, the likelihood of achieving sustained recovery and relapse prevention. Our in-hospital medical procedure occurs while patients sleep lightly under deep sedation. Our medical team administers intravenous medication to cleanse the Tussionex from patients’ bodies. This takes less than two hours and without the use of opiate replacement drugs including Suboxone and methadone. Patients awake opiate-free without the awareness of the accelerated withdrawal symptoms that occurred while they were sedated. The entire hospital stay is a few days, getting you back to your lives, families and careers much quicker than most traditional detox and rehabilitation programs. Our program is safe, humane and completely confidential. Patients are also given the option to take advantage of our Domus Retreat transitional living facility to continue recovery with programs such as biofeedback, massage, counseling and relaxation.
