Vicodin, Does it work for you?

I've had chronic back pain for quite some time now. The docs finally decided to go a bit harder on the drugs so I can sleep at night. They gave me a crapload of Vicodin and I was like, "Holy shit, I'm gonna get effed up and feel no pain!" Unfortunately this is the third night in a row I've taken it and I don't really feel a difference. I'm pretty dissapointed after listening to all those Eminem songs talking about it I'm gonna drink a beer to see if that helps.

Has anyone else had no effects from taking Vicodin? What could be the reason I'm not?

Thanks,

Have another beer on me!

My experience with Tramadol is not so good.

It is was hard for me to concentrate and i felt stupid. After 10 pills or so i threw the bottle away.

FDA is about to change a lot of laws regarding combination meds (with Tylenol) due to massive amounts of liver failures. Percocet is the same except it has Oxycodone in it instead of Hydrocodone and that's pretty much like heroin. Take enough Oxycodone (chronic pain, years worth), there's no getting off that shit, the doctors will be increasing the doses until you're wearing patches (Fentanyl), sucking lollipops and popping pills 24/7 just to sustain the opiate addiction... the good thing is that opiate tolerance pretty much has no ceiling, the bad thing is that it gets really really expensive.

It's really scary.
Heavy drinking + acetominaphen = liver damage.

Also, taking it on a full stomach will reduce its effectiveness.

I saw one of the resident doctors on CNN talking about this a month or so ago. He said that the acetaminophen creates some kind of substance in your system that can be toxic to the liver. Under normal circumstances your liver has the ability to break this toxin down to prevent damage, but apparently when you drink, the alcohol suppresses whatever it is that breaks down the toxin so your liver gets hit pretty hard.

Only had them 2-3 times & they didnt seem to help at all.

Oxycontin on the other hand...i was given two 3-4 years ago while having a bad day at work...its easy for me to see how Favre, Limbaugh etc. got hooked on them...floating around on air, quite high, but every thought was crystal clear, no stumbly stuff, i didnt feel at all 'drugged'. It passed easily in a professional environment & actually helped my work attitude.

Word to the wise - long term vicodin use? Buy some OTC stool softeners. Or you'll be like the accountant with a broken calculator...you'll have to sit down and work things out with a pencil.

My right leg would go numb, but I felt tingling in both.

It's kinda ironic, everyone told me to only have surgery as a last resort but now that I have had it, I wish I would have done it a lot sooner. I feel about 80% better.

Doctors have me on Vicodin and Flexeril for a strained muscle. Was constipated for 4 days and finally just pooped. Felt good to poop again.

The vicodins really help my pain. I only need to take 1.

Pain meds ? Never heard of them.

I need the following surgeries, you tell me what you think I'm on ?
Back L-5
Both knee
Rotator cuff
Bone spurs on both feet

Plus arthritis in every joint
Severe Veracious veins in the legs & feet
Kidney stones, again......

Between the wife and I our house resembles a warehouse for all the local pharmacies.

You keep taking them... you'll need more than 1.
