User Comments:


For Pain “I was in a head on collision with a cattle truck when I was 30 years old. I’m 66 now. I since have had six joint replacements and multiple other surgeries to repair multiple fractures in both femurs and other bones.I have used vicotin 7.5/325 for 30 years and found that it is extremely helpful. It does not interfere with my productivity, concentration, agility, or other impairment.I’m horrified to have it taken away after responsible long term use.”

For Pain “I was given this after I had an IUD inserted which was incredibly painful and has continued to be and it didn’t do anything for the pain, didn’t even touch it. The pain actually felt worse after taking it which makes no sense. All it did was make me extremely tired and out of it. No effect on pain whatsoever”

For Pain “I’ve been taking Vicodin or something like it for years. First for migraine headache and occasional back pain. Total of maybe 30 pills a year. My most pressing need were bouts with cellulitis. If I were to describe the pain, think placing you leg in a bucket of scalding water up to the knee. I took it round the clock for a few weeks. I now take it for chronic knee and hip pain. The dosage is 5 mg 3 times a day as needed. I rarely ever take 3 doses. Most days maybe 1 or 2 and if the pain is manageable, I don’t use it at all. I’m averaging 60 pills every 4 months. The talk of addiction precludes me from taking it when I (or even my wife) feel I should. I’ve never felt high or drugged. The only side effect I see is less pain.”

For Pain “I was prescribed this after wisdom removal. It makes me nauseous so I also take zofran which fixes that. It also makes me extremely tired but it takes most of the pain away. Not all of it, but it definitely helps me function a little better”

For Pain “I got this after I had my wisdom tooth extracted. I was still in pain after taking it. It didn’t do much.”
