Vicodin Withdrawal

Vicodin withdrawal takes place any time an individual becomes physically dependent on hydrocodone. Withdrawal symptoms are not usually a major danger to the individual but they can prove to be rather uncomfortable and difficult to deal with. In fact, Vicodin withdrawal is typically what leads the individual back to the drug as they are willing to do whatever it takes to make the withdrawal symptoms go away and in most cases this means either allowing time for the symptoms to take course or taking more of the drug to counteract the withdrawal. Unfortunately, this leads to the very vicious cycle of addiction.

Withdrawal from Vicodin

The difficult process of overcoming physical dependence on Vicodin is marked by many withdrawal symptoms that make it difficult for the addict to stay away from the drug. In an effort to “feel” better, the addict will often use more Vicodin just to get rid of the discomforts that they feel when they begin to withdraw.
