Comment:
Anyone who continues to use this drug beyond its prescribed perameters has a dependency issue brewing. Not that dependency is neccesarily a bad thing but the patient will soon turn to purchasing the drug on the street and the abuse of the drug will increase. Why is it ok to be addicted to coffee or cigarettes but not ok to be addicted to an opiode based drug??

Comment:
Severe arthritis pain which does not respond to any OTC painkillers. Vicodin ES does not stop the pain--however it does make it possible to get to sleep ! No OTC remedys do anything for my pain. I assume the cause is my body.
