Vicodin is known by various names, including Norco, Hydromet, Hydrocodone, Lortab, and Lorcet. It has similar effects to other drugs such as heroin or morphine. It has a high addictive risk that causes affected individuals to have a high level of tolerance, requiring them to use the medication even without medical benefits.
Addicted individuals seek the comforting effects that repeated use produces. A Vicodin addiction can be identified by the following symptoms:
• Chronic illness
• Repeat doctor visits for new prescriptions
• Ignoring prescription recommendations or instructions
