Duodin Addiction

Duodin is a semi-synthetic opiate which in simple terms means that a part of this drug is derived from the poppy plant. Duodin is usually a prescribed medication that is used in the treatment of pain and as to suppress coughs. Commonly prescribed in liquid and pill form, this drug when taken as instructed by the doctor is not usually addictive. However, one should not forget that this drug is a partial opiate and opiates are by nature narcotic and highly addictive. When a person forgoes the instruction from a doctor and takes the medicine without any consultation then the chances of addiction and abuse are extremely high. The reason behind this is simple.

When a user takes Duodin in a larger dose than recommended by the doctor, he gets a feeling of being high or in a state of euphoria. When a person starts using the drug regularly his body becomes addicted to the feeling of being high and craves it. This is when the user becomes a true victim of drug addiction and will go to any length to get his fix of the drug. When an addicted person does not get his usual fix of the drug his body suffers severe withdrawal symptoms.

Withdrawal Symptoms

Withdrawal symptoms of duodin are generally like the symptoms seen and experienced in other opiate drug addiction patient. These symptoms include:

  • Severe Muscular and Bone Pain
  • Vomiting and Nausea
  • Stomach and Abdominal Pain
  • Shallow Breathing
  • Narrow pupils
  • Anxiety
  • Severe mood swings
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Fever and flu like symptoms

The body usually feels these symptoms when the brain is left bereft of duodin and the brain is left without the drug blocking the receptors. When the brain tries to function without the opiate blocking the receptors, the body finds the effort too much and goes into withdrawal. This is why it is almost impossible for a person to get rid of his addiction without proper treatment. Usually when a person tries to kick the habit without proper rehab facility, the chances of a relapse are quite high.

Duodin Detoxification

Under the duodin detoxification program, the patient is slowly weaned off the drug with the help of opiate antagonist like naloxone and suboxone. Both these prescription drugs are used to prevent the body from suffering the severe withdrawal symptoms. Suboxone blocks the withdrawal by tricking the brain into thinking that duodin is working again, however the brain does not feel high. The patient is slowly but steadily cured off his addiction and the use of suboxone is first decreased and then eliminated entirely. However, it is extremely necessary that the medication must be taken as prescribed by the doctor under the detox program, so that the withdrawal symptoms do not reappear.
