Vicodin Withdrawal Symptoms

Vicodin is a prescription pain medication that is commonly given to patients who are suffering with mild to moderate pain after an accident, surgery or situation that leads to pain. While it is used medically, Vicodin is an addictive substance that has withdrawal symptoms. Learning to identify the Vicodin withdrawal symptoms will make it easier to get help during the initial challenge of detoxifying after the medication is no longer necessary.

Mood Related Symptoms

The Vicodin withdrawal symptoms often include changes to mood and behavior. Many patients will experience mood swings or similar mood problems after stopping the medication after using it for an extended period of time.

The most common mood changes relate to depression and anxiety. Many individuals who stop taking Vicodin will notice feelings of fatigue, worry, sadness and a lack of motivation. Depression and anxiety are most common in individuals who felt euphoric and energetic while taking the medication.

While many individuals will become depressed or anxious after stopping Vicodin, others will notice extreme irritability. The irritation can result in anger and outbursts during the initial stage of detoxification, but usually reduces over time.

Pain Related Vicodin Withdrawal Symptoms

Symptoms of withdrawal from Vicodin are not limited to mood problems. It also causes feelings of pain and discomfort in many individuals. Even if the injury or situation leading to taking the medication is no longer an issue, withdrawal symptoms of Vicodin can lead to certain painful situations.

The most common type of pain caused by withdrawal symptoms is a severe headache. The lack of medication in the system can cause severe pain in the head during the first few days of detoxification. In most cases, a regular over-the-counter pain relief medication combined with rest will help alleviate the discomfort.

Body aches and muscle pain is another symptom of withdrawal that typically comes with stopping the use of Vicodin. The discomfort in the muscles and body will usually fade over time and is reduced with an over-the-counter pain medication.

Feelings of Illness

While the most common symptoms of withdrawal relate to aches, pains and mood swings, some individuals will also feel sick. The most common feelings of illness include nausea, chills and a slight fever. Rest and hydration are the keys to fighting the feelings of discomfort relating to illness.

While Vicodin is commonly given to patients who are suffering from mild to moderate pain, it is an addictive substance. An extended period of time on the medication can lead to withdrawal symptoms. In most situations, the symptoms are mild and manageable with rest and time.
