Zohydro ER is a medication prescribed to patients who are experiencing severe, ongoing pain, such as pain due to cancer. Zohydro ER is classified as an opioid analgesic, as it effectively reduces pain by changing the way that the brain and body respond to it. This medication should only be used to treat ongoing pain and it is not meant to be taken as needed.

Common side effects associated with Zohydro ER use include nausea, vomiting, constipation, lightheadedness, dizziness, and drowsiness. These common side effects should go away as the body adjusts to Zohydro ER. If they do not go away or get worse, be sure to let your doctor or pharmacist know.

Other serious side effects have also been associated with Zohydro ER, although they are relatively uncommon. Serious side effects of Zohydro ER include mood changes, agitation, confusion, hallucinations, stomach or abdominal pain, difficulty urinating, and signs of the adrenal glands not working, such as loss of appetite, unusual tiredness, and weight loss. Make sure to tell your doctor right away if you notice these serious side effects. You should get emergency medical attention immediately if you notice the following after using Zohydro ER: fainting, fast or irregular heartbeat, severe dizziness, seizure, slow or shallow breathing, severe drowsiness, and difficulty waking up.

Zohydro ER Signs, Symptoms and Side Effects

Zohydro ER patients who use the medication responsibly may still develop a Zohydro ER dependence or addiction since opioid analgesics can be very addictive. If you think that someone in your life has started abusing Zohydro ER, seek professional help as soon as possible. Signs which may point to a Zohydro ER addiction can include becoming obsessed with finding and taking Zohydro ER, losing interest in the hobbies and activities you once enjoyed, performing poorly at school or work, and experiencing financial losses due to spending money on obtaining Zohydro ER.

People who have abused Zohydro ER for a long period of time will likely experience adverse effects due to its abuse. Long-term effects of abusing Zohydro ER include addiction, tolerance, liver problems, mental health issues, and more. For this reason, you should never use Zohydro ER unless it has been prescribed to you by your doctor.
