Hysingla was designed for people who cannot tolerate immediate-release opioid medicines or for those with pain that non-opioid medicines cannot treat well enough. It is intended to manage pain that is severe enough to require long term and 24-hour treatment. This drug is a narcotic which contains an opioid. This drug puts you at high risk for death or overdose as it is an extended-release (long-acting) pain medicine. The danger of misuse that can cause death, abuse and opioid addiction is very high if large doses are used for getting high. The withdrawal symptoms are severe because Hysingla is a long-acting hydrocodone formulation that is designed to be used around the clock.
Risks of Using Hysingla
One cannot suddenly stop taking Hysingla if you’ve been on it for a while because patients quickly become dependent on this opioid. The dosage has to gradually be tapered off. The return of pain and withdrawal symptoms will occur if the person is rapidly tapered off. It can cause breathing disorders related to sleep. There are many cases of reported central sleep apnea and hypoxemia. If a child accidentally ingests even one dose of Hysingla it can result in an overdose of hydrocodone due to respiratory depression and ultimately it causes death. When a patient converts from one opioid to this one if the dose is not properly adjusted it can cause an immediate overdose as well.
Hysingla Withdrawal Symptoms
The withdrawal symptoms from Hysingla can include sweating, nightmares, cold-hot sweats, trouble sleeping, runny nose, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, and muscle aches. Restlessness, mental and mood changes, anxiety, depression, fatigue, headaches, goosebumps, and even suicidal thoughts can occur as well. These withdrawal symptoms can persist for one to 3 weeks. If a pregnant woman has been using Hysingla their newborn will be at risk of neonatal opioid withdrawal symptoms and this is deadly if not recognized promptly. If not treated quickly with the essential supervision rendering to the procedures established by neonatal specialists the newborn will likely not survive.
According to ASAM, the American Society of Addiction Medicine, there are over 2 million people in the USA that struggle with some form of opioid addiction. The longer someone was using Hysingla and the levels of the doses will determine the severity and the amount of time the withdrawals will go on for. For someone with health conditions that were already there previously, there will be more dangers when getting off of Hysingla. If a person already had mental health issues the withdrawals can make these health issues come back and progress even more than before as well.
