i have severe arthritis, vicodine 7.5/750 is wonderful pain relief, although it does constipate me of which i am prepared for. drink a lot of water and fruit. it does give me a false sense of well being to which i am aware of .

i totaled a car in 2005. i was put this by my doctor but with my addictiveness and addiction in the family i have become addictive to this and it is hard as hell to get off of it. i stopped for a month but couldnt take the withdrawals so i started again. however the dose that i used to take which was almost 10 to 20 a day dropped to nothing for a month and about 2-4 a day. i still go back and forth with this. i do not take to take this anymore but it is very hard to stop. does anyone have any suggestions? I went to the DR and he said to just stop using it. But the mental tolereance over the physical is worse.

I've been on this med for 7 yrs due to severe scoliosis & neck pain. I could not make it through a single day without it. The drug works very fast, but doesn't stay with you very long, maybe 3 hrs. @ best. It is very easy to build a tolerance and need more & more. Causes extreme constipation so a laxative is very helpful. I feel "human" while taking the medicine...without I don't want to get out of bed.

My doctor prescribed this for me to treat pain from severe arthritis and fibromyalgia. It takes the edge off the pain so I can work and function. It does not take the pain away totally. Like others have said, doctors are too afraid to prescribe pain medications because they have been so badly abused by others. It means that people that have genuine pain have to suffer for the abuse/greed of others. If you have pain you have to jump through hoops to prove that you will not abuse them or sell them. It makes winter here in the Northeast difficult to get through.

This is a miracle drug I have beeb taking this medication for 7 years now and if it wasn't around I wouldn't be either because it helps with my fybromialga and my lower back I have a buldging disk in my back and it works great with the pain. Make sure you drink plenty of water with this medication and I notice when I eat before I take it, it doesn't work.
