How long does vicodin stay in your system? In other words today is day 5 off of them for me and I'm going to have blood work done soon. How long does it take for your liver function to show up normal again on the blood tests? I was taking anywhere between 17-25 (325mg) pills a day for about 3 weeks this last time and before that I hadn't had any in months. If you have any idea at all, please let me know.

My next question is, what is can someone explain to me the difference between dependence and addiction? I'm not sure I understand.
