In Reply to: Can VICODIN Tolerance be reversed? posted by Disk on July 30, 2000 at 11:55:25:

: I've been noticing that my usual prescribed dosage of vicodin isn't as effective
: as it once was. I know that over time patients build up a tolerance
: but instead of increasing the dosage, I'm wondering how long
: it would take to be off it before my body's tolerance to the drug
: "wears off".
: I'd rather suffer for a time using just over the counter pain meds
: than continuing to increase the dosage if the time span isn't years.
: Thanks for your reply.
That's a really interesting question. Are you asking if you stop taking it for a month or two, then go back to taking it, can your tolerance be low like it was at first? I wonder about that, too. I was hoping someone could answer that. I was wondering if your tolerance ever goes back to where it was before, like if you stop taking it, then 6 months later start again, does it have the effect that it did when you took it the first time?
