Hydrocodone is an opioid used in issues involving pain relief. It can be acquired by prescription, but like all opioids those who use it run the risk of developing an addiction.
When a hydrocodone addict decides to break his or her addiction, hydrocodone withdrawal ensues. Like any opioid that the user has developed a dependence to, hydrocodone withdrawal can be very unnerving and painful.
Hydrocodone withdrawal consists of:
- Excessive sweating & yawning;
- Runny nose & eyes, bouts of diarrhea and vomiting;
- Shivering & goose bumps
- Muscle aches & cramps
- Restlessness & insomnia
- Irritability & anxiety
- Loss of appetite
- powerful cravings
Although hydrocodone withdrawal symptoms can be difficult, the outcome when finished is a life of being addiction free.
