The more mild Vicodin withdrawal symptoms typically set in within the first few hours and last for between one and three days.
Once the early stage symptoms subside they are replaced by more intense and severe symptoms, including:
- Intense muscle pain
- Severe stomach cramping
- More severe anxiety, which might be coupled with panic attacks or hyperventilation
- Nausea, vomiting and diarrhea
- Severely depressed mood
- More significant and disruptive sleep-related issues
The symptoms of withdrawal vary on a person-to-person basis depending on the severity of the Vicodin abuse disorder and the length of time the drug was being abused. Even if the substance abuse disorder was relatively mild, it is impossible to avoid withdrawal symptoms altogether. They can, however, be effectively treated in a medical detox facility like CuraWest.
