Lorcet Withdrawal and Detox

Siobhan Morse, the executive director of The National Institute for Holistic Addiction Studies, discusses Lorcet Withdrawal and Detox in this Special Report.

What is Lorcet?

Lorcet is a narcotic opioid pain medication. In combination with acetaminophen, it is a less potent pain reliever that increases the effects of the hydrocodone.

Lorcet is used to relieve moderate to severe pain. In some circumstances, the medication can be used to treat recurring long-term conditions that cause pain.

Occasionally, health care providers may also recommend off-label Lorcet uses such as for treating insomnia or coughing.


Lorcet Withdrawal and Detox

What is Lorcet withdrawal?

Due to Lorcet being an analgesic, over time, the body becomes accustomed to the effects of the medication. If Lorcet is stopped too quickly, withdrawal symptoms may occur.

These symptoms can occur with chronic, legitimate use of the drug as well as with Lorcet abuse.

Withdrawal is a normal, predictable and a physical response to stopping the medication, although it is certainly more likely to occur in cases of hydrocodone addiction.

Withdrawal from Lorcet can be extremely unpleasant. It can be so uncomfortable that people start taking the drug again in order to relieve the withdrawal symptoms.

What are the withdrawal symptoms of Lorcet?

The withdrawal symptoms of Lorcet include: restlessness, muscle pain, bone pain, insomnia, flu-like symptoms, involuntary leg movements, irritability and panic.

What is Lorcet detox?

When Lorcet use is stopped abruptly, the withdrawal symptoms can be severe.

Persons who are addicted to Lorcet usually enter a substance medical detox in which the withdrawal effects and symptoms can be minimized at a safe and steady pace under the supervision of a medical doctor.

This kind of medical drug detox program has been proven safer, faster, and more comfortable than other systems currently in use.
