Vicodin can have devastating effects on individuals who unaware become addicted when they start using it. What starts off as assistance to help with a recovering injury can become a problem. This can become a problem as individuals start using painkillers for non-medical purposes. They tell their doctors they still have nagging pains, despite contrary indicators. They look physically healthy, but they constantly complain about having to use painkillers.

Can a drug test detect Vicodin?

Vicodin is an opiate which can be detected using different drug tests such as:

  • Blood tests: test positive for up to 12 hours
  • Urine tests: test positive from 2 to 4 days
  • Hair follicle tests: can be tested for a maximum of 90 days

Abusing painkillers will have extremely negative effects on an individual's life such as:

  • Slurred speech
  • Staggering or becoming clumsy
  • Unusual sweating
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Numbness in extremities, including hands and feet
  • Dilated or constricted pupils
  • Dizziness
  • Confusion
  • Constipation

Another troubling factor about Vicodin addiction is the ease with which individuals can acquire painkillers. Massachusetts does not have an adequate system to watch over painkiller purchases, even in its biggest cities like Boston, Lowell, Worcester, and Springfield. ''Doctor's shopping'' which consists of going to various doctors and pharmacies in order to get painkillers is something that has been observed in Boston and many other Massachusetts cities.
