I use Vicodin HP 7.5-750 to treat all the nerve pain I have due to two liver transplants. Yes, not one but two!! This drug is the only pain medication that kills my pain and I mean kills it. I've been subsribed Vicodin since my first liver transplant in June 2004. They aboslutely kill the pain in my stomach, spine and pelvic areas. After all this time; plus three hernia surguries after the transplants vicodin still very effective medication. it's the best I've found except for the injections and my labs continue to be perfect! But ask if I could quit taking them, honestly I don't know. They are very addictive!

I have used this drug off and on for many years. I have used it for migraine, post surgery pain and broken bone pain. It is very effective and allows me to function. The best way to describe the effect is that I feel the pain becomming numb. My cognitive function remains high while under its influence. It gave my life back to me!

Have been taking Vicodin now for 10 years. Was in a car accident and my knee was crushed. The ONLY way I can work is to have some pain relief as I am in pain 24/7/365. That is reality. We are addicts but it is so we can function and work. I don't abuse any of the meds I take. Have severe high blood pressure, which goes through the roof when I'm in pain. And I work in health care and see the best Dr's. Hopefully I can last 10 more years and retire but I have to work. Vicodin HP has been a god send for me. Take it TID with Tramadol. Don't be afraid to take pain meds. thats what they were invented for, people!!!!! Plus my mood is so much better because I'm not focusing on the pain. I can function and concentrate on the task at hand. Please get the addict word out of your head. If you need to function, hold a job, be somewhat pain free (for chronic pain) this is a very good drug. Oh and I guess I'm addicted to Blood pressure meds. as I have to take them also. ;) Have also tried MS Contin timed release which was the best pain med ever but constipated me so bad I had to stop. OK story over.

I INITIALY STARTED WITH VICODIN 7.5/750mg. 5 TIMES A DAY FROM A HERNIATED DISC, THAT I HAD SUFFERED FROM AN INJURY AT WORK. I THEN DEVELOPED SPONDYLOSIS OF THE LOWER LUMBAR SPINE, (3 VERTABRAES)RESULTING IN 4 HERNIATED DISCS. AT WHICH THEN I WAS SWITCHED TO VICODIN H.P. 20mg. 3 TIMES A DAY FOR THE PAST 10 YEARS. JUST OVER A YEAR AGO I WAS INVOLVED IN A SEVERE MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT, THAT RESULTED IN MANY BROKEN BONES,INCLUDING 2 FRACTURED NECK VERTABRAE'S,CRUSHED EYE SOCKETS,AND MULTIPLE ROAD RASH SKIN REMOVAL. I ENDED UP WITH A TOTAL OF SEVEN SURGERIES, INCLUDING FACIAL RECONSTRUCTION,COLLAR BONE TITANIUM PLATE INSTALLATION, AND RECOVERY FROM 4 BROKEN RIBS. ALONG WITH CHRONIC PAIN MANAGEMENT THAT INVOLVES TAKING MS CONTIN.(EXTENDED RELEASE MORPHINE SULFATE)100mg. 2 TIMES A DAY. THE VICODIN H.P. PROVIDES ME WITH WONDERFUL BREAK THROUGH PAIN MANAGEMENT.AS I HAD SAID, I TAKE 20mg. OF VICODIN H.P. EVERY 4-6 HOURS AS NEEDED. ALTHOUGH THE MEDICINE DOES PROVIDE EXCELLENT PAIN REDUCTION FOR BREAK THROUGH PAIN, IT DOES NOT GIVE ME THE "DRUGGED UP" DIZZENESS THAT OTHER BREAK THROUGH PAIN MEDICATIONS CAUSED.I.E;ROXICODONE OR PERCOCET. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE VICODIN H.P. FOR EITHER BREAK THROUGH PAIN MANAGEMENT, OR COMPLETE PAIN RELIEF MANAGEMENT ON IT'S OWN, TO ANYONE WHO IS SEEKING PAIN RELIEF, WITHOUT THE "DRUGGED UP"FEELING THAT OTHER MEDICINE'S MAY CAUSE.IT IS SIMPLEY A WONDERFUL PAIN RELIEVING MEDICATION.............

Comment from: on Treatment for 6 months - 1 year (Patient) Published: July 15

I have tried some different pain meds to manage my chronic back pain, and Vicodin HP seems to be the most effective for me. It doesn't cause me any nausea or drowsiness, and it decreases my pain level enough so that I can actually work. It also allows me to continue running (which I really enjoy) and work out at the gym. The med also helps me sleep through the night as it prevents me from waking up in severe pain every two hours.
