Xodol is the combination of hydrocodone, a narcotic painkiller, and acetaminophen, a non-narcotic agent used to treat pain. It also has cough-suppression properties. The hydrocodone component can be habit-forming, leading to tolerance, addiction, even overdose. A hydrocodone addiction can necessitate a medically-managed detox. The acetaminophen can be toxic at excessive levels so patients taking Xodol should do so carefully. Taking more than the recommended daily dose can lead to liver damage. This poses a problem because acetaminophen is in many over-the-counter products unbeknownst to many people. The list of possible side effects from taking the prescription medication Xodol can include nausea, sedation and constipation. Not everyone will experience the same side effects and some can set in after first use. Other patients may not feel the onset of side effects right away. It’s important to know however that the opiate-based painkiller can be taken without any side effects at all.
Possible Side Effects Associated with Xodol Use
Even with short-term use, patients can experience constipation, nausea, vomiting, sedation, euphoria, lightheadedness, vision changes, mood changes, dizziness, fatigue, depression, tremors, sleeplessness, anxiousness, flu-like symptoms, upset stomach, dry mouth, pupil constriction, itching, hallucination, delirium, sweating, muscle and bone pain, confusion, extreme irritability and muscle spasms. Medical help should be sought immediately if patients experience any of these more serious side effects: severe respiratory depression, slow or irregular breathing, slowed heart rate, hearing loss, changes in the amount of urine, confusion or stupor, coma, clammy skin, circulatory collapse and cardiac arrest. Acetaminophen can also cause liver damage in excessive amounts. Signs to watch for include yellowing of the skin or eyes, severe nausea, dark urine, stomach pain or extreme drowsiness.
Opiate-Free, Discreet Detox for Xodol Addiction
The Waismann Method is a rapid drug detox program that has had huge success treating addiction to Xodol and other opiates. We want you to know you no longer have to fear withdrawal. Our procedure medically manages painful symptoms in the safest, most comfortable manner. Many conventional drug detox programs use opiate substitution therapy to treat opiate addiction. The Waismann Method doesn’t use opiates to treat your addiction, eliminating a second addiction and need for another detox. Performed in an accredited hospital, our procedure utilizes intravenous medications to cleanse Xodol from patients’ opiate receptors. This happens while they sleep lightly under deep sedation. Once they awaken, they have no conscious awareness of the withdrawal that took place during the procedure. Our highly successful and humane treatment can reverse prescription painkiller addiction in a matter of days, getting you back on your feet quicker than other drug detox programs. Our Waismann Method program, along with our Domus Retreat aftercare facility, is completely discreet.
