Zydone is a drug used to treat pain. Similar to Vicodin, Zydone is composed of two substances: acetaminophen and hydrocodone. The only difference is the amount of acetaminophen in each product. Acetaminophen blocks the production of prostaglandin in the body, while hydrocodone creates the feeling of euphoria and partial sedation. The combination of these two substances makes Zydone an effective painkiller.

Fatal hepatitis may be induced if an addict takes in too much alcohol while on Zydone because both alcohol and acetaminophen are metabolized by the same chemicals in the liver, leading to the liver running out of these chemicals.

Addiction Signs and Symptoms

drug addictionThe first step to recovery is the acceptance that an addiction is present. Although this may not be easy to do, there are signs and symptoms that can help identify if a person is in need of Zydone addiction treatment. There is no definite period that can be used to measure when a person can be considered an addict; this is highly dependent on the amount of drug used by an individual. Signs of addiction may include:

  • Becoming irritable and restless when not getting the drug
  • Exhausting all means to get the drug
  • Having the grave desire to have doctor appointments to get more drugs
  • Faking injuries and illnesses just to get the medication prescribed to them
  • Lying about the amount of dosage taken
  • Being unable to function and think straight without the drug

When these signs are noticed, one must immediately seek professional help, as these may worsen with time. These signs may eventually lead to degradation of one’s professional and social life as taking drugs becomes the priority in life.

If you think you have an addiction, seek Zydone addiction treatment right away. Give us a call today at to speak with our expert advisors.


According to the 2009 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), an estimated 21.8 million people admitted to have used illicit drugs a month prior to the survey — this number being the highest in eight years.

Zydone Addiction Treatment and Detox

In most cases, detoxification is the beginning of Zydone addiction treatment. This involves a medically supervised withdrawal from the drug, as the effects of withdrawal may be very uncomfortable for a patient. The intensity of the withdrawal symptoms differs depending on the amount, dosage and length of drug abuse. Reactions to the withdrawal may include:

  • Hot and cold flushes
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Extreme anxiety
  • Sweating
  • Agitation

Drug rehabilitation facilities have board-certified physicians and psychiatrists who care for addicts, especially during the withdrawal stage. Alongside the detoxification process are psychiatric evaluations and medical treatments. It is thus necessary that an addict stays in the facility 24/7 for timely monitoring. A 28-day period for cleansing is generally offered in most Zydone rehab centers.

It is recognized that the short-term treatment given in Zydone addiction treatment centers is not a guarantee for complete recovery. As such, long-term treatment is needed. This may involve checking in a facility for months or even years. Some recovering addicts hire personal psychiatrists outside the centers to further treatment. Surrounding a recovering addict with support from family and friends will be of much help in ensuring that he or she stays clean. Most importantly, a recovering addict should have an inner motivation to stay clean and live a new and happy life away from Zydone.

Drug maintenance has also been recognized as an option to long-term Zydone addiction treatment. This involves dispensing opiates under medical supervision. Addicts come in specialized clinics where they are given methadone in liquid form daily. Another drug prescribed for maintenance is the partial opioid agonist buprenorphine. This drug is taken three times a week.


The First International Opium Conference was held in 1912 at The Hague, where discussions and agreements about opium trade were made. This brought about the introduction of the first Opium Law in 1919.
