Nuromol is an over-the-counter pain relief medication. When taken in the recommended dose, it is completely safe for bodies. However, like other over-the-counter drugs and prescription medication, there is a risk that you could become dependent on Nuromol.

In this case, Nuromol addiction can occur which can have huge physical and psychological effects. Here, we look at the signs and symptoms of Nuromol addiction and highlight what you should do if you’re concerned about it.

What is Nuromol Used For?

Available from pharmacies, Nuromol is a pain relief medication that relieves mild to moderate and temporary pain. Typically, it’s used when other pain relief medications like Paracetamol and Ibuprofen haven’t worked.

The most common conditions it can treat are headaches, cold and flu, dental pain, muscle pain, sore throats, and fevers.  As Nuromol is readily available, many people believe you can’t become addicted to it. But, just like other prescription drugs and over-the-counter medication, it can lead to dependence and drug addiction.

Why Prescription Drugs are Addictive?

One of the biggest reasons prescription drugs are so addictive is the naivety surrounding them and a lack of awareness of their ingredients and addictiveness. Put simply, people believe that because they’re available, they must be safe, and some choose to self-medicate, which results in taking a higher dose.

Painkillers like Nuromol work by intercepting the pain signals to the brain. At the same time, it releases positive and relaxing sensations around the brain and body.

This can result in a cycle of the brain and body looking for more Nuromol, tolerance building and dependence growing. What’s more, as the body and brain become dependent on the substance, it’s likely that you’ll suffer from side effects and withdrawal symptoms without the substance or if you try to reduce your dose.

Nuromol Abuse and Addiction

If you think you have a Nuromol addiction or are worried about a loved one who uses Nuromol, it’s important to get the right help. Nuromol abuse can lead to serious health complications.

There isn’t a set symptom that means you have an addiction. Instead, it’s usually a behaviour pattern indicating you could require professional help.

Typical signs of a Nuromol addiction include:

  • Cravings and withdrawal symptoms without Nuromol
  • Using Nuromol even though the initial pain has disappeared
  • Going to extreme lengths to get Nuromol
  • Wanting to stop but not being able to do
  • Continuing with your usage even though it’s having a big impact on health, finances, relationships, and jobs
  • Needing higher doses to function

It can be difficult to admit or even realise that you might have an addiction, especially when the substance is available over the counter. But if something has made you question your behaviour, then it’s important to consider why.

Even if you don’t think you have an addiction but are concerned about your usage, the team at Ocean Recovery are here to help. We won’t judge you or force you to go into drug rehab. Instead, we’ll listen, give advice, and highlight what options are available to you.

Addiction recovery is possible when you’re ready. However, individuals have got to recognise they have a problem and want to recover. Watching loved ones in denial struggle with addiction can be hugely challenging for friends and family members.

Our team is here to support you, too; we have family referral and intervention services which can be a sounding board for you to voice your concerns and ask any questions about the next steps.

Dangers of Painkillers

Painkillers are safe when taken in moderation and with the correct dose. But when taken in high doses, they can become addictive because of how they work in the brain. For this reason, it’s important that you only ever take painkillers in the way they have been prescribed. Knowing the signs and symptoms of painkiller addiction is also wise.

Painkiller addiction can present itself in several ways and soon take its toll on your physical and mental health. Common side effects of painkiller addiction include:

  • Liver damage
  • Kidney damage
  • Increased risk of heart attacks and strokes
  • Bruising and bleeding
  • Stomach concerns
  • Skin reactions like blisters and rashes
  • Mood changes
  • Headaches
  • Issues with sleeping

If you are suffering from any of these or are worried about your usage, you must get medical help. Addiction, including painkiller addiction, is classed as a serious health condition. One that requires medical attention. This is what makes private drug and alcohol rehab often the only choice.

Evidence-based therapy treats physical addiction and emotional and psychological dependency at a rehab centre like Ocean Recovery. You’ll be guided to create a new lifestyle with healthy choices that are good for you and your body. Plus, you’ll have access to a medically assisted drug detox where you and your withdrawal symptoms are monitored and treated with medication.

That’s not all. When you choose a leading rehab centre like ours, you’ll also be provided with aftercare and relapse prevention to ensure you have everything you need to stay strong, motivated, and resilient even when your time at rehab has ended.
