Patients misuse opioids because of the euphoric high these drugs can create as well as desirable effects, such as relaxation or sedation. With extended-release opioid medications, they are often misused by being crushed, chewed or dissolved. Then, the drugs can be snorted or injected. That delivers a rapid concentration of the drug all at once, as opposed to a gradual, controlled release. Hysingla is supposed to be very difficult to crush or dissolve, but it’s not impossible that someone could use this as a drug of misuse. When someone misuses Hysingla ER, they are putting themselves in danger. Hysingla ER can cause addiction and dependence as well as fatal respiratory depression. On average, 115 people die every day in the U.S. from opioid overdoses, and hydrocodone is part of the opioid epidemic.
Along with uncomfortable or dangerous side effects, mixing alcohol and Hysingla can be deadly. Alcohol can increase the concentration of Hysingla ER in the body, creating a dangerous amount of the opioid in the system. Alcohol is a central nervous system depressant, as is Hysingla. Both slow the functions of the central nervous system. The central nervous system controls vital functions like heart rate, blood pressure and breathing. When two CNS depressants are used together, the person may suffer from respiratory depression, which can lead to coma, brain damage or death. If alcohol and Hysingla are regularly used together, it can cause damage to not only the brain but also the heart, kidneys and liver.

Both alcohol and Hysingla ER are substances that are addictive and can lead to physical dependence. As well as the physical side effects detailed above, when they’re used together, someone is at risk for developing a polysubstance misuse problem. Being dependent on both alcohol and Hysingla at the same time, as well as addicted to two powerful substances, is almost always going to require a professional medical detox and addiction treatment. It’s complex to treat a simultaneously occurring addiction to alcohol and an opioid, requiring specialized treatment.
