Dihydrocodeine Addiction Effects
Dihydrocodeine can be habit forming as tolerance to the drug is built up. Symptoms of addiction and overdose can include: dry mouth, itching, drowsiness, constipation, nausea, vomiting, flushing, giddiness, hyperactivity and orthostatic hypotension.
LAAM Withdrawal Symptoms
The withdrawal symptoms associated with Dihydrocodeine addiction are usually experienced shortly before the time of the next scheduled dose, sometimes within as early as a few hours (usually between 6-12 hours) after the last administration. Symptoms sometimes include: body ache, muscle aches, back ache, leg kicking, diarrhea, runny nose, watery eyes, sneezing, sweating, goose bumps, cool, pale and clammy skin, yawning, vomiting, irritability, anxiety, chills, shivering or trembling, abdominal cramps, weakness, increased blood pressure, convulsions, dehydration, insomnia and thoughts of suicide.
Rapid Anesthesia Dihydrocodeine Detox
The RDD Method® for Dihydrocodeine detoxification under anesthesia is a medical procedure that eliminates most of the withdrawal symptoms. During the procedure the patient is given medication to relax and then put under light, general anesthesia for about 1 hour. Following the procedure, recovery begins under direct medical supervision.
The patient’s vital signs and overall physical and mental reactions to these medications are closely monitored during the detox procedure. In the days that follow, the patient often sleeps more than usual. Administered by professionals as part of a long-term drug-addiction recovery strategy, The RDD Method® is significantly more effective than other courses of Dihydrocodeine addiction treatment.

If you are using opiate drugs to control pain and feel you are using more and more to get the same pain relief, you may be suffering from a common condition caused from opiate drug use; read about this condition called Hyperalgesia. Also, read about hormones and how the chronic use of opiate drugs can decrease the body’s ability to produce the proper amount of testosterone and estrogen.
We never use other replacement addicting opiates, often prescribed by physicians and detox centers, such as Suboxone®/Subutex (Buprenorphine) or injectable Buprenorphine. These schedule III controlled opiate drugs are routinely and widely used and approved by the FDA for opiate addiction maintenance, like Methadone. Many patients find themselves in the same situation as they were before drug treatment from a doctor or a drug rehabilitation center. We have heard of some in-patient rehab centers also using schedule II controlled liquid Hydrocodone and Dilaudid “cocktails”. Patients soon realize these replacement drugs cause severe withdrawal once they are discharged from these programs. This causes the patient to seek opiates for relief from the severe discomfort of a Buprenorphine withdrawal. The use of these drugs for treatment of opiate addiction is merely switching one opiate drug for another, setting the patient up for failure. This does not solve the patient’s drug addiction problem. As use of these drugs become more common, we are seeing a steady increase of requests for an anesthesia detox from patients addicted to Suboxone®/Subutex (Buprenorphine). With RDD’s Naltrexone Therapy used as a pellet/implant, injectable “IM” shot or the oral pill form, the patient stays clean and cravings are eliminated.
