One of the many brand names of the opioid hydrocodone, Hydrococet is a prescription pain pill. Like all opioid pain pills, it’s often abused – although it’s safe to use under a physician’s instructions.
Hydrococet addiction can be easy to fall into. Taking more Hydrococet than prescribed, sharing pills, or taking the drug after it’s no longer needed all count as drug abuse. Hydrococet abuse causes a person to become more tolerant of the drug’s effects, meaning they have to take more Hydrococet to feel the same effects.
Hydrococet abuse can be lethal, and recovery from Hydrococet addiction is complex and difficult. Clinical, monitored detox must the the first step.
