Hysingla is an extended-release version of the opioid pain reliever hydrocodone. Hyslinga ER is intended for use in people with severe, ongoing pain. It’s an around-the-clock medicine, usually prescribed to be taken every 24 hours, and not on an as-needed basis.

What Are Common Hyslinga Withdrawal Symptoms?

Hyslinga ER is an extended-release version of the opioid pain reliever hydrocodone. Hyslinga ER is intended for use in people with severe, ongoing pain. It’s an around-the-clock medicine, usually prescribed to be taken every 24 hours, and not on an as-needed basis. People who are prescribed to take high doses of Hyslinga should already be opioid-tolerant. Hyslinga ER is different from other prescription, brand-name hydrocodone drugs in two major ways. First, it isn’t a combination drug, so it doesn’t contain acetaminophen. The other way Hyslinga is a different medication from other opioids is because it has certain features that make it harder to misuse. For example, if someone were to try and dissolve the tablet to inject it and get high from it, the tablet would turn to gel. Despite these protections, there is still a risk of misuse, addiction and also dependence on Hyslinga. When someone is dependent on an opioid, their brain and body become used to the presence and function of the drug. If someone stops using Hyslinga suddenly when dependent, they will likely have withdrawal symptoms. Common symptoms of Hyslinga withdrawal can include:

  • Joint pain
  • Muscle aches and pain
  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Insomnia and sleep disturbances
  • Shaking
  • Chills

Hyslinga Withdrawal Timeline And Symptom Duration

The specifics of the Hyslinga withdrawal timeline can depend on the individual and their scope of use. In general, it can take up to 48 hours for withdrawal symptoms to appear. This is because Hyslinga is a long-acting opioid. For some people, it could take even longer. Within the initial day after withdrawal symptoms appear, the person will usually experience nausea, cramping and sweating. This is also when aching of the muscles and joints begins. Symptoms peak within a few days after they originally begin. The first three to five days after someone first experiences Hyslinga withdrawal symptoms will usually be when vomiting, diarrhea and sweating occur. Within a week, physical symptoms may start to subside, but psychological symptoms can start to occur. Psychological Hyslinga withdrawal symptoms can include depression, anxiety and cravings. Some people may experience psychological symptoms of Hyslinga withdrawal for a month or more.

Managing Symptoms Of Hyslinga Withdrawal

Managing symptoms of Hyslinga withdrawal is typically best done with a tapering down schedule. Stopping Hyslinga suddenly is called going cold turkey. This is going to result in the most severe, persistent withdrawal symptoms for most people. On the other hand, when the dosage of Hyslinga is gradually tapered, it can mitigate many if not all of the withdrawal symptoms. However, no one dependent on Hyslinga should try to taper down their dosage without the guidance of a medical professional.

Hyslinga Medications And Detox

Medications can make Hyslinga withdrawal more manageable and less uncomfortable. It’s important that someone is able to make it through the detox period fully for them to begin addiction treatment. Specific medications are approved to help treat symptoms of opioid withdrawal including buprenorphine. Buprenorphine can help manage cravings along with many of the withdrawal symptoms of Hyslinga and other opioids. Clonidine is a medication often used in opioid detox as well, and it can help with symptoms such as muscle pain and vomiting. Naltrexone is a medication that can help block the effects of opioids, and it can shorten detox time for some people. Methadone is a maintenance drug sometimes used during opioid detox, although it has its own potential for dependence.

How To Choose A Hyslinga Center

For people with a Hyslinga dependence, the best option can often be a medical detox. During a professional medical detox, patients stay in a facility with around-the-clock medical care. A team of both physical and mental health professionals can help provide the necessary treatment to manage symptoms and eliminate the risk of dangerous complications. When choosing a Hyslinga detox center, it’s good to look for a facility that’s part of an addiction treatment program. Otherwise, the patient will have to transfer somewhere else for actual addiction treatment. Looking for a dual diagnosis program can be helpful as well so that the individual can receive an assessment for co-occurring mental health issues that may exist. They can begin receiving treatment for these disorders during detox.
