: : FYI... It is impossible to become addicted to Hydrocodone If! you keep it at a 7.5 level..:
: I'd have to disagree. A good friend of mine got addicted (in the true sense) as well as dependent on Hydrocodone at a low dose.
FYI: Hydrocodone is a mental/physical addictive drug, when taken even at the lower dosing over a period of a few weeks, often without the patient realizing it before it's too late! It's a great drug but needs to be monitored on its usage. Taking this drug over a period of time will also produce opiate tolerance.(You need more to get the same effect). These facts are well documented in several journals and case studies.
