I have been on pain meds since 2006. I was a utility lineman who worked on power lines and was electrocuted by 100 thousand volts and broke my back in 5 places and had both shoulders reconstructed. I was left with 5 bulging disks, 2 ruptured disks, 5 compression fractures and about a dozen bone fragments floating around on my nerve endings of my spine. . The pill in question is the generic form of Vicodin. It means that it contains 5mg of hydro condone and 500mg of acetaminophen. The drug is highly abused by all types of people inculding myself. I would suggest throwing it away unless under care of a doctor that prescribed it. The medicine is considered hill illy heroine. Truly, all this is is a form of heroin and is virtually impossible to get off of. Doctors start you off on this drug then move to 5mg of oxycodone, then if that is not strong enough then they put you on 10mg oxy's then OxyContin and then move up from there to liquid forms or implanted pain pumps.
I have done everything to obtain the meds. This drug is highly addictive if taken for long periods of time. I would never take it longer than 2 week intervals. BEWARE OF THIS DRUG. I REPEAT!!! Beware !!! I am now an addict and still continue to have pain. All because of doctors!! They get paid big bucks to prescribe this drug and do not care about their patients until they realize they may get in trouble for writing to many scripts. Patient is then left out in the cold..
