  5. Why is vicodin so addictive?
Asked: 2018-08-13 07:42:35
I’ve been prescribed vicodin as I’ve had this recurring injury for years, but my brother is dead-set against it, as one of his friends ruined his life as a result of his addiction to Vicodin. What is so addictive about it?

Well, firstly, people don’t see it as so bad – cos they get it from their doctor. But it is an opiate and they are highly addictive. Vicodin gives a pleasurable feeling, a high, and the body craves that.

The euphoric effect that it produces makes it pretty popular and it gets widely abused. You’ll find that you’re wanting more and chasing that high.
