Is It Hydrocodone/APAP Addiction or Something Else?People whose pain is not adequately controlled often display signs that mimic hydrocodone/APAP addiction. For instance, if your prescription is not strong enough for your pain, you may display unusual changes in behavior due to the pain, or you may take the medication more frequently than prescribed. If you feel your pain is not adequately controlled, please discuss this with your healthcare provider. However, many people start down the slippery slope of hydrocodone/APAP addiction by using inadequate pain control as an excuse (for both themselves and others).
Mental illness can also cause symptoms that mimic signs of hydrocodone/APAP addiction.
