Cold sweats, sometimes unexplained vomiting, lack of sleep, lying, denial, total personality change... what else you wanna know? My ex-husband ruined our marriage by being addicted to pain meds.

When i was on pills i thought about them right when i woke up so most pill heads start early and your right about the vomiting i did that alot. Look for pill bottles i used to keep mine in a advil bottle.

They will also lie about how many they are taking and why they need them. To add to my above list of signs, everyone else on here added some good ones. They do gain a lot of weigh, itch alot, and their skin is very yellowish-grey color. They do talk alot but can't remember what they said. They will even fall asleep mid sentence and then pick up the conversation seconds later when they jolt awake. It's a strange addiction. For someone who is totally uneducated on pills, it is very easy to mistake the symptoms for something else. They become VERY good at hiding it. It does eventually catch up with them though.

I do not understand the big deal about these hydrocodone pills, seems like everyone knows someone on them, what the heck do they do for you anyway!

I'm not entirely sure.... I've just seen it happen on alot who are addicted to hydrocodone.

..maybe it just breaks down the minerals and nutrients in the teeth... who knows....

All im gonna say is i had a bad wreck in 04 and should not have lived thru it but i did . so they sent me home with a giant bottle full of them and they made me very sick at my stomach...if you are on them awhile they will cause the minerals and vitamins in ur body to run difficient so they do more harm to your body than good i have been on them heavy before due to being prescribed to them and it was hard getting off these pain killers will make ur body totally withdrawl so bad till u draw up and cry...its very sad too.....I'm Over It!Thank God!

So glad I never needed to take pills or drugs to drown out my sucky life! It is a hard road, I've watched quite a few family members deal with it! Doesnt make life one bit easier, only makes it harder! U just cant see that when ur messed up! People always have to learn the hard way! They truly waste so much of their lives on the crap!
I am truly thankful for the druggies in my life tho! I was lucky to get to learn from THEIR mistakes!

For starters let me say, I'm not an addict, although I know quiet a few. Symptoms of drug use are similar no matter what the drug. You usually get 1 of 2 side effects a high or a low. some peopele get a high like meth from pills, and some get a low. You can usually tell when they become a chatterbox and ramble on, can't remember things, jittery hands, cold sweats, irritable for no reason...They will do whatever it takes to get the drugs! Beg, steal, borrow, sell, trade. Most people take them to get high because, it's like a rushed and relaxed feeling all at the same time for them. They are highly addictive no matter who you are, like any other drug. Some other symptoms include tooth decay, skin tone changes, dilated eyes, or droopy eyes, slurred speech and balance problems. If you think someone you know is having a problem be up front with them in a polite way, so they don't go on the defense, and ask them if you can help them beat the addiction...Seek proper help if needed, and whatever you do, remain calm with the person, people coming off any type of drug can become very mean and defensive and combative and most have no memory of it what so ever. Please be cautious around anyone you think may be on these pills, mood swings are horrible when they are high.
