Does the fear of suffering through a painful withdrawal keep you from seeking help for a Vicoprofen addiction? Medical advances in the last decade have made it possible to essentially skip this dreaded phase of detox. The Waismann Method of rapid detox offers a renowned Vicoprofen detox that is safe, quick, confidential and medically-based. Vicoprofen is the combination of hydrocodone, a narcotic pain reliever, and ibuprofen, a non-narcotic painkiller. It is meant for the treatment of short-term, moderate to severe pain but has the potential to lead to abuse, addiction and withdrawal. Symptoms can vary from mild to severe and may begin within hours of last use. They can persist for weeks or months, leaving patients feeling sick and often flu-like. Most of our patients become dependent upon Vicoprofen or other opiates by accident. A legitimate prescription, if used regularly, can lead to the development of a tolerance. Once the drug’s effects on the body have been diminished, many patients escalate use or misuse it in other ways. Addiction can develop quickly and should be treated by medical professionals.
Commonly Reported Vicoprofen Withdrawal Symptoms
A strong physical and/or psychological craving for Vicoprofen is characteristic of withdrawal. Other signs to watch for 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. These symptoms can be more pronounced in long-term users, those who misuse or abuse it, or those who are taking the drug in combination with other substances. It is strongly discouraged that patients do not attempt to detox “cold turkey” on their own. The right course of treatment will rid patients of the addiction, while medically managing painful withdrawal symptoms. This will ensure safety and decrease the risk for complications such as seizures, convulsions and spikes in blood pressure. Medically-managed withdrawal also helps to ensure a sustained recovery and prevent many of the triggers that can lead to relapse.
Waismann Method: A Safe, Humane, Confidential Approach to Opiate Detox
Our cutting-edge detox procedure and follow-up care increase the chances for long-term recovery. The Waismann Method procedure occurs in the hospital where medical professionals monitor every step. We begin with the administration of intravenous medication to cleanse the Vicoprofen from patients’ systems. This happens while patients sleep lightly under deep sedation and takes less than two hours. We don’t use opiate replacement drugs including Suboxone and methadone to wean patients. They awake from our procedure 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 entirely confidential. After-care is closely monitored and patients can opt to extend their stay at our Domus Retreat transitional living facility. The serene and supportive environment gives patients the chance to focus on continued recovery with counseling, biofeedback and other holistic therapies.
