Zohydro is a potent opiate analgesic made with hydrocodone. This prescription medication is used to treat ongoing, chronic pain. The approval for this drug comes at a time when prescription drug-fueled overdoses and deaths are at an all time high. While painkillers can be taken responsibly and without incident, they can lead to dependence and addiction.
Zohydro Treatment is available for people who have developed a problem with this painkiller. People who need around-the-clock pain management may be prescribed Zohydro. If taken as indicated, it can be a helpful tool in the fight against pain. Misuse or abuse or of this drug can quickly escalate, requiring patients to undergo Zohydro detox.
Zohydro addiction is a serious matter that can get out of control quickly. Understanding the difference between dependence and addiction is important. Physical dependence to Zohydro means the body gets used to the drug’s presence, and comes to rely on it. Absence of the drug when physical dependence is presence will cause withdrawal. A tolerance to Zohydro will develop with prolonged use and this means the drug won’t work as well as it did when a person first began taking it. It’s important that patients not increase their dosage, but rather speak to a doctor about options.
Zohydro addiction is characterized as a disease that manifests with an inability to control cravings and use, despite negative consequences. Strong cravings for Zohydro should be considered a warning sign that professional opiate detox is needed. The terms “addiction” and “dependence” are often used interchangeably and this can be confusing. There are people who take Zohydro responsibly and safely, though they may still be physically dependent upon it. This can he managed by a doctor who will safely taper the medication if need be.
Zohydro withdrawal can develop after relatively short-term use of the drug is stopped. If your body has become dependent upon Zohydro, withdrawal symptoms will develop if you stop taking the medication for any reason. These symptoms can range from extremely uncomfortable to dangerous.
Zohydro withdrawal symptoms can include anxiety, extreme agitation, nausea, diarrhea, fever, runny nose, goose bumps, vomiting, abnormal skin sensations (“crawling”), pain, rapid heartbeat, muscle rigidity, sweating, insomnia, shivering and tremors. Some people see, hear or feel things that aren’t there.
