Dolophine is an opioid analgesic used by patients to relieve their severe, ongoing pain, such as pain due to cancer. Because it is an opioid analgesic, Dolophine effectively reduces pain by changing how the body feels pain. Dolophine can also be used to treat opioid addiction as part of a thorough treatment program because it can stop withdrawal symptoms caused by other opioids.

When used for pain, Dolophine should only be used to treat severe ongoing pain, rather than mild pain that may go away in a few days.

Dolophine Addiction Treatment and Rehab

Patients who begin their treatment with Dolophine may notice side effects. This is completely normal, as the common side effects of Dolophine should subside after the body adjusts to the medication. Dolophine side effects that do not require medical attention include nausea, vomiting, constipation, lightheadedness, dizziness, dry mouth, drowsiness, and sweating. If any of these Dolophine side effects persist or worsen with time, let your doctor know.

Serious Dolophine side effects are rare, but it is important to be aware of them in case of an emergency. Tell your doctor as soon as possible if you notice the following serious side effects after using Dolophine: mood changes, agitation, confusion, hallucinations, abdominal pain, difficulty urinating, loss of appetite, unusual tiredness, and weight loss.

You should seek medical attention right away if you notice the following after using Dolophine: fainting, seizures, severe drowsiness, difficulty waking up, or signs of an allergic reaction such as rashes, swelling of the face, severe dizziness, or difficulty breathing.

Dolophine addiction is a very serious matter and, for this reason, you should seek help immediately if you suspect that someone in your life is developing a Dolophine addiction. Signs which may point to a Dolophine addiction can include losing interest in the hobbies and activities you once enjoyed, becoming obsessed with finding and taking Dolophine, performing poorly or irregularly at school or work, and financial problems. Spotting Dolophine addiction early on will help patients get the help they need, which will provide them with the tools they need to live a happier, healthier, substance-free life.

If you no longer want to use Dolophine, schedule a meeting with your doctor to discuss your treatment options. You should never stop taking Dolophine suddenly or “cold turkey,” as your risk for unwanted withdrawal symptoms will dramatically increase. You should never adjust your Dolophine dosage levels or treatment schedule if your doctor does not tell you to.

Doctors will typically lower a Dolophine patient’s dosage gradually, over time, so that the body can adjust to less and less of the medication. This strategy, called tapering down, will help patients avoid severe Dolophine withdrawal symptoms.

The Recovery Village has many resources for patients who want to overcome their Dolophine addiction. Before entering either inpatient or outpatient Dolophine rehab, patients must first completely detox from the medication. Once all the Dolophine is safely removed from the patient’s body, they can participate in group and individual counseling sessions while they are at The Recovery Village.
Inpatient Dolophine rehab requires patients to live on campus at one of The Recovery Village’s designated inpatient centers while they recover from Dolophine addiction. This rehab program is very helpful for patients diagnosed with severe Dolophine addiction or those who may find it harder to recover at home due to distractions from their daily lives.
After a patient completes the inpatient Dolophine rehab program, they will begin outpatient Dolophine rehab. The outpatient program allows patients to live at home while they come to The Recovery Village for their scheduled treatment appointments. Some patients may choose to begin treatment with outpatient Dolophine rehab and skip the inpatient option entirely if their addiction is mild.
Choosing a Dolophine rehab center is a very important step in the recovery process. It is recommended that patients consult with their doctors about what features they should seek in a rehab center to make the most informed decision possible.
