    I was prescribed this for pain relief for a 8mm kidney stone until surgery. I took one tablet at around 11 pm and I didn't get much relief at all. I woke in the morning and my head felt like it was going to explode. Terrible nausea which I absolutely dislike. I said no more of this drug ever again. I pray the stone doesn't move anymore until surgery. I'd prefer what ever they injec ... Show Full Comment

It would be like stopping insulin. The diabetes does not go away.

    Has no effect on me. I've taken it multiple times. When I broke my finger, when I had wisdom teeth removed, and when I got stitches on my hand after I got cut on some broken glass. Also, I have fibromyalgia and it does nothing to relieve the pain. Smoking weed helps, and ingesting edibles at night before I go to bed helps me to function during the day without pain. But vicodin had no effect fo ... Show Full Comment
