Discussions that mention vicodin

Pain Management board


Hey Weaver,

Glad to hear that your meds are working better. I think the 40 mg was too much for you based on your previous meds. Sounds like your Dr is understanding and you are doing better on the meds.

As far as OxyContin goes, it is a stronger drug, but you don't have to be scared to be on it. There is a lot of bad media attention that has came about this drug, but those of us that are on it for legitimate reasons usually don't have a problem. Its funny because OxyContin is just time-released Oxycodone. The same drug that is in Percocet and others. And yes there are people that abuse OxyContin and it has received a lot of bad press, but Hydrocodone (Vicodin) is one of the number one abused pain meds out there. And it seems that everyone has taken Vicodin at one time or another.

Anyways, I better stop cause I'll just keep rambling.... Glad everything is working out for you.

Take Care
