Before Using Hydrocodone (Waston) Medicine:
Hydrocodone is a very efficient anti-cough drug which helps to reduce cough problems. It also acts as an opiate and is used to treat moderate pain. This drug is considered similar to morphine in its pain relieving abilities. It has been seen that if this drug is taken according to the doctor’s prescription then it does not show any harmful effect, in fact it is very good for relieving any kind of pain. But if anyone starts taking it without the doctor’s prescription he may get harmfully addicted to it.
Hydrocodone is a narcotic which attaches itself to some proteins known as opioid receptors. When this narcotic attaches itself to proteins in the gastrointestinal tract, brain and the spinal cord, they have the ability to change the way in which a person feels. This drug also has the ability to control the sensory units for which a person feels pleasure. Thus over dosage or regular dosage can lead to physical addiction. Thus this drug should never be taken without the doctor’s advice.
Addiction to hydrocodone is seen as a crisis. Some illegal drugs like marijuana, cocaine and heroin are very popular but not everyone knows about drugs like hydrocodone. It is one of the most widely abused drug in United States but not everyone knows that. About 20 tons of this drug is manufactures even now. This needs to be stopped very soon. But for this awareness has to be spread. People should be aware of the harmful side effects that it causes like decreased physical and mental performances, lower sex drive, allergic reactions, constipation, hives, dizziness, breathing trouble and much more. Thus people should stay away from this drug as much as possible and not take it if the doctor does not prescribe it and aware other people about this as well.
