Zohydro ER is a pain-reliever given to patients to treat their severe, ongoing pain. This medication is not meant for treating mild pain or to be used “as needed.”

Zohydro ER is classified as an opioid analgesic, which means that it reduces pain by influencing how the brain responds to it.

People who begin treating their pain with Zohydro ER may notice side effects during the beginning of treatment. Common side effects of Zohydro ER include nausea, vomiting, constipation, lightheadedness, dizziness, and drowsiness. Most of these symptoms should go away as the body adjusts to Zohydro ER. If these symptoms do not go away, let your doctor or pharmacist know.

Serious side effects associated with 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. Be sure to tell your doctor right away if these serious side effects become apparent.

Patients should seek emergency medical attention right away if they experience the following severe side effects after using Zohydro ER: fainting, fast or irregular heartbeat, severe dizziness, seizure, slow or shallow breathing, severe drowsiness, and difficulty waking up.

Zohydro ER Addiction Treatment and Rehab

Patients who are using Zohydro ER may develop a Zohydro ER tolerance or an addiction. This is due to the fact that Zohydro ER is an opioid. Opioids can be particularly addictive because of the euphoric effects that they produce and the tolerance it induces in patients. For this reason, seek help as soon as possible if you suspect that someone in your life is addicted to Zohydro ER. Addiction symptoms of Zohydro ER include becoming obsessed with finding and taking Zohydro ER, losing interest in the hobbies you once enjoyed, performing poorly or irregularly at school or work, and more.

Patients who no longer wish to treat their ongoing pain with Zohydro ER should set up a meeting with their doctors before adjusting their treatment schedules. In fact, you should never adjust your Zohydro ER dosage levels or treatment schedule without explicit instructions from your doctor. In addition, Zohydro ER should never be stopped suddenly or “cold turkey.” Abruptly stopping your Zohydro ER treatment will greatly increase your risk of experiencing severe Zohydro ER withdrawal symptoms.

To avoid withdrawal, doctors will gradually lower Zohydro dosage over time. This strategy of tapering off the medication will allow the body to slowly adjust to less and less of the medication.

Patients seeking to recover from Zohydro ER addiction can greatly benefit from the resources and programs offered through The Recovery Village. Regardless of whether a patient enters the inpatient or outpatient rehab option, they will be required to completely detox from Zohydro ER. Once all of the medication is safely removed from the patient’s system, they will be able to attend group and individual counseling sessions and participate in recreational activities during their time at The Recovery Village.

Inpatient Zohydro ER rehab is a program that requires patients to live at one of The Recovery Village’s designated inpatient centers while they recover from their substance use disorder. This program can be particularly beneficial for patients who are suffering from severe Zohydro ER addiction and those who may find recovery to be too difficult in the outside world due to distractions from home.

Upon completing the inpatient rehab program, patients will enter outpatient Zohydro ER rehab. Here, patients will live at home while they attend scheduled treatment appointments at The Recovery Village. This rehab option may be beneficial for patients with less severe Zohydro ER rehab who wish to opt out of the inpatient program.

Finding a Zohydro ER rehab center that will suit your recovery needs is an important step in living a healthy, substance-free life. You may want to set up a meeting with your doctor to discuss what features you should look for in a Zohydro ER rehab center.
