 5  Swollen lymph nodes in stomach Itchiness, headaches. After a long night in the emergency room with what seemed like appendicitis (it was actually swollen lymph nodes in my stomach), I was prescribed 15 Vicodin. It gave me the most solid sleep I have ever had in my life (causing me to sleep less than usual) and I had never felt more rested. When it would wear off I would get headaches almost worse than the swollen lymph nodes that lasted an hour or so, but that negative was outweighed by how much better I felt. F 18 7 days

 4   Nausea , irritability , itching , drowsy ,euphoric feeling when I take this I feel extremely happy about random stuff. The next day I feel like I have a hangover . Can be very addictive luckily I don't have anymore .i was prescribed this medicine after having laparoscopic surgery it gets rid of the pain pretty fast. I took the rest of the medicine to relax And to help me sleep but using Benadryl is non habit forming and more effective for sleeping. Be carefully taking this if you have a history of addiction .

 5  Helped me COPE with reality! Euphoria! Feel great, social, active, energized. I was taking the highest dose (cant remember the MG's). If you could only seperate the "good stuff" from the ecetominophen, you would be "all powerful"!! The world's greatest drug! Percodane and percocet dont do it. My Mom was elderly and on it for years and she didnt mind sharing. She is dead now, and I really miss my Vic's :( I suffer from social-paranoia, depression and panic attacks. This works better than ANY SSRI's or benzodiazipines to help me cope with social situations, but no Doc on earth will give them for that reason. M 57 2 years

 4  Neck and back pain I cannot take this at night due to insomnia but that's about the only side effect I've ever had. I do not get drowsy with this medication nor do I have an nausea or vomiting. It's a "lighter than air" feeling in my head. I can see how people could get addicted to this drug. It makes me very "happy" but when I took it 10 years ago for back pain, it didn't do anything at all. No effects whatsoever. I only take it about 2 times a week at the most and will not be refilling my script for it. F 35 5 weeks

 5  for cramps and muscle pain helped me sleep when i needed to sleep so just drowsy when laying down otherwise was able to function at work on it I was put on 10-325mg first after i went through a still birth...I had very bad cramping and although it did not take the pain away completly it did help enough that was was able to sleep when i wanted and was able to work when i had to...the last time i had it was for back and stomach pain from the depo shot...it was just the 5-325mg so not as strong but still helped enough again to sleep when needed and work when needed...way beter then what i was given next (Toradol). First time i was on it for about 4 or 5 weeks the second i was on it for only 3 days F 24 3 days

 4  Cracked Wisdom Tooth I didn't experience any negative side effects. I felt euphoric, hard to concentrate, finding pointless things to be amusing, and a slight stomach ache that went away with a piece of bread, crackers, and some water. It did the trick. I had been suffering horrible sharp shooting pains attributed to a cracked and exposed wisdom tooth. The pains were so bad that I would sweat and almost pass out. The vicodin did the trick, and other than what I listed as the couple small side effects, the pain went from horrible to nothing. M 26 10 days

 1  Chronic back pain Sleepy, dry mouth, headaches. Made me hyper and very, very sad. I felt like I was having a breakdown. I would cry for an hour straight for the smallest reasons. It didn't help with my pain at all. F 50 2 months

 5  Pulmonary embolism None. It was a terrific pain killer with no down sides for me I took the 10/500 tablets. I needed two to kill the pain enough to sleep in the hospital and for the first three weeks or so after I got out. Also took one occasionally during the day the first couple of weeks to deal with pain. As the clot has started to dissolve, I have now gone two weeks without taking any in the day, and five nights in a row without any to sleep. My spouse gets insomnia if she takes it at night, but I have not had that effect. I don't get any euphoria from it, so I'm not worried about addiction. It's the best pain reliever I've ever had; since I'm on coumadin, I can't take aspirin or ibuprofen, so this is great. M 62 30 days

VICODIN HP  (ACETAMINOPHEN; HYDROCODONE BITARTRATE):  This combination medication is used to relieve moderate to severe pain. It contains an opioid (narcotic) pain reliever (hydrocodone) and a non-opioid pain reliever (acetaminophen). Hydrocodone works in the brain to change how your body feels and responds to pain. Acetaminophen can also reduce a fever. This product is not recommended for use in children younger than 6 years due to an increased risk of serious side effects (such as slow/shallow breathing).   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
