For several years, I have been managing my back and knee pain with "brand" Vicodin HP. Its always helped me get through my day and get tasks done. Bizarrely enough, and I would even concede that its probably in my head, the "generic" version never worked as well. At any rate, I just got a call from my pharmacy stating that they have discontinued making "brand" Vicodin. Can anyone validate that? Also, does anyone know what I can take, besides generic, that would be equivalent to "brand" Vicodin HP... Ugh. Thank you in advance for your input.
