Re: Coumadin and Vicodin??
Before you take the medication please go to the addiction on here and read some of the posts. Not saying this to offend you (or anyone else) in ANY way, shape, form or fashion. But, PLEASE do it. There is alot of things that doctors do not tell you about Vicodin. I started seeing my doctor for back pain in APRIL of '06 after a dryer fell down a flight of stairs and I pulled several muscles trying to stop it. Well, needless to say, even for legitimate pain, I am now addicted to it. My doctor NEVER told me that even after a month of use, the brain will MAKE UP IMAGINARY PAIN so that the user keeps taking the medication. And withdrawls from this medication are worse than a METH habit. I found it a whole lot easier to get off speed (in my younger years) than to get off a pain killer! Remember, Vicodin is an opiate, sorta like heroin. I only say this because I care for people, even the people I do not know. I do NOT want to see ANYONE travel down this road that I am on. Sometimes I have suicidal thoughts because the medicine has ruined my life. And all of this because I had legitimate pain that called for legitimate relief, but not for almost a year later to wish I was dead rather than to have to wake up everymorning NEEDING to take the medicine to avoid the w.d.
God Bless You.
If you have read the posts I mentioned after reading this, you might want to look into a strong over the counter medicine OR something like an anti-inflammatory pain medicine.
