As most of you know already - I have decided to quit taking Vicodin - however, I think I was a little too hasty with that decision. I am in PAIN - a pain I have not felt in about 2 years. It is debilitating. I think I need the Vicodin to function and you know what - that is ok. I wouldnt be the first patient on chronic narcotics to function in life, would I? I just have to be sure not to abuse it and take it as directed. But wait - could the pain be from like a rebound from no pain medication?
