Vicodin Addiction

Composed of hydrocodone and acetaminophen (painkiller) in different dosages, Vicodin has become one of the most abused drugs in the US. It consists of a very strong opiate painkiller and a moderate non-steroid pain reliever. It works by blocking the pain receptors in the brain and instigates a sense of euphoria, making Vicodin a highly addictive drug.

Vicodin is a prescription drug and is often prescribed by doctors to ease patients with pain or injury. These patients then build a tolerance for it thereby increasing chances of addiction.

Methods of Vicodin abuse include: Ingesting more pills than prescribed, snorting or intravenously by injecting.

Symptoms of Vicodin Addiction

It is imperative to recognize the signs and symptoms of Vicodin abuse, so one can recognize when they or their loved one is becoming addicted.

Some of the common warning signs to look for are:

  • Slow heartbeat
  • Lightheadedness
  • Confusion
  • Vomiting
  • Headache
  • Blurred Vision

  • Pain in the muscles and bone
