Prescription drug abuse is becoming a well-known problem. Often, doctors prescribe Vicodin to their patients to help them cope with pain as a result of injuries or illnesses. Many individuals are able to take this very powerful prescription painkiller in correct amounts, and are able to stop their usage when the pain has subsided. However, other individuals dealing with unresolved underlying issues often become physically and psychologically dependent on the drug.
While an individual is taking Vicodin, they may develop a physical tolerance, thus needing more and more of the drug to obtain the desired or original effects. There are several signs and symptoms to look out for if you suspect you are addicted to Vicodin, such as physical withdrawals (feeling sick or achy when you stop taking it), irregular heartbeat, nervousness and anxiety, or sudden shifts between feelings of euphoria and severe depression. One of the more recent and serious trends we are seeing among Vicodin dependent people is what we call “doctor shopping.” In an attempt to gain access to a greater amount of Vicodin, individuals will move from doctor to doctor, faking ailments in order to receive their prescriptions. This is a very serious matter, as an individual can often find their way to lethal amounts of Vicodin by this method.
