Addiction is a curse that can turn a person’s life into a living nightmare. There is no doubt about the fact that addiction is a dark and negative force that can become potentially life threatening if a person is addictive to a lethal substance such as Biocodone.

Risks of Biocodone Addiction

Available under the generic name of hydrocodone, biocodone is an extremely potent synthetic opioid analgesic that ironically is prescribed by doctors to treat chronic pain. As it is an opioid by nature therefore it is a narcotic and is highly addictive in nature. When a person takes biocodone regularly for a long period of time it attaches itself to the opioid receptors in the brain which blocks the pain and with it gives the user a feeling of extreme euphoria or being high. Steadily the body and the brain become addicted to this feeling of being high and start craving the drug. This is when the body becomes addicted and when it is denied its usual fix of the drug the body suffers from withdrawal that is uncomfortable both physically and mentally. In fact the continuous and non prescription drugs like biocodone can lead severe health consequences that may end in death.

Biocodone Addiction and Symptoms

Any opioid is highly dangerous and that includes biocodone which is also a Schedule 1V narcotic. In simple terms it means that it dangerous enough that the FDA has heavily restricted its distribution. As biocodone is a full opioid the danger of psychological as well physical addiction is extremely high. The reason behind this is the fact that it is a highly effective pain reliever and is known to provide instant pain relief even in the most chronic pain condition, this is the reason it is highly addictive and sadly the addiction of biocodone usually starts through legal means.
Usually symptoms of biocodone drug addiction include high tolerance towards the drug, strong cravings, anxiety, extreme mood swings, sleeplessness, restlessness, depression and when the body does not get its usual fix of the drug it goes into withdrawal that is extremely uncomfortable physically as well as mentally. Withdrawal symptoms include: nausea, vomiting, acute abdominal pain, chills, sweating, flu like symptoms, anxiety, panic attacks, headaches as well as sleeplessness.

Biocodone Abuse Treatment

Biocodone abuse treatment is available in both inpatient as well as outpatient options. Usually, inpatient treatment works best for an abuse treatment as the patient is kept in a highly controlled facility with no access to the drug. Outpatient treatment is not highly recommended by doctors but it works well for people who are unable to take time off work or have serious work obligations. However, usually doctors prefer that a patient chose inpatient treatment over outpatient because inpatient treatment means a controlled and closely monitored environment of a residential drug rehabilitation center where a patient is completely isolated from the addictive substance.
