What Is Horizant?

Horizant is a medication used to treat moderate to severe restless leg syndrome. Horizant can also be used to relieve nerve pain following shingles. Horizant is classified as an anti-seizure and anticonvulsant medication.

Horizant Addiction Treatment And Rehab

Just like starting any new treatment, using Horizant may produce certain side effects. Less serious side effects of Horizant include drowsiness, dizziness, loss of coordination and blurred vision. Make sure to tell your doctor or pharmacist right away if these side effects get worse or last an unusually long period. Although many patients do not experience serious side effects of Horizant use, it is important to know them so you can identify them if necessary. Serious side effects of Horizant treatment are slow or shallow breathing, depression, suicidal thoughts or attempts and unusually or sudden mood changes. Tell your doctor and get medical help right away if you experience any of these serious Horizant side effects.

In some very rare cases, patients have an allergic reaction to Horizant. Get medical help immediately if you notice these Horizant allergy signs: fever, swollen lymph nodes, rash, itching or swelling of the face, tongue or throat, severe dizziness and trouble breathing.

Treatment Options For Horizant Addiction Symptoms

Even if you are taking Horizant exactly as your doctor asks, you may develop a dependence on Horizant or an even further addiction to Horizant. Get help right away if you notice these Horizant addiction signs, such as becoming obsessed with finding and taking Horizant and losing interest in the hobbies and activities you once enjoyed. Spotting Horizant addiction early can help you or someone you love get a head start with finding a life-saving program that’s right for them.

Horizant Medical Detox

Set up a meeting with your doctor if you are considering stopping your Horizant treatment. Do not stop taking Horizant cold turkey, as this can produce enhanced and unwanted Horizant withdrawal symptoms. If you are looking to get off Horizant, typically your doctor will lower your Horizant dose over time so your body can adjust accordingly to less and less of the medication.

Horizant Rehabilitation Programs

The Recovery Village has a variety of programs and resources for patients looking to kick their Horizant addiction. The first step in each of The Recovery Village’s rehab programs is to safely detox from Horizant. After the Horizant is removed from the body, patients can participate in group individual or group therapy as well as recreational therapy options.

Inpatient Horizant Rehab

Inpatient Horizant rehab allows patients to live on campus at one of The Recovery Village’s designated inpatient facilities. In this type of program, patients can avoid any of the external environmental distractions that may make the recovery process more difficult. Usually, inpatient Horizant rehab is beneficial for patients experiencing severe Horizant addiction.

While patients are in the inpatient Horizant rehab, patients will learn skills on how to face their own individual physical and psychological Horizant addiction challenges.

Outpatient Horizant Rehab

After finishing inpatient Horizant rehab, patients will enter the outpatient Horizant program. In outpatient Horizant rehab, patients can live at home while they attend scheduled treatment appointments at The Recovery Village. Typically, daily life is easier to participate in if patients choose the outpatient Horizant rehab program. If someone is experiencing less severe or mild Horizant addiction, they may opt to skip the inpatient program and begin treatment with the outpatient Horizant rehab program.

Choosing A Horizant Rehab Center

Finding the Horizant rehab center for you is an important step on the road to recovery. Set up a meeting with your doctor to discuss your individual needs in a Horizant rehab center so you can make an informed decision. You may want to consider how long you have been taking Horizant as well as your Horizant dosage levels when talking to your doctor.
