Vicodin ES (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: I had a root canal and something went very wrong. The procedure, for those not familiar is an infection at the very base of a tooth. I had swelling, intense pain in half my lower jaw along with numbness. This medicine worked well for the pain with minimal side effects, although I was very cautious driving and stopped medicines when going on major highways.
Vicodin ES (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: I am 18. I have been using Vicodin for about a year now for migraines and back pain. My back problems started right after I had my son. I never experienced back pain or migraines until I had him. All the lifting him up and yelling triggered the issues! I was on a medication called "Bultab". It kept me awake all night, it was terrible. Thankfully I was written a prescription for Vicodin and it really helped.
Vicodin ES (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Back Pain: My back was severely injured in 1981 I have had numerous surgeries and am disabled I have an implanted pain pump I have used Vicodin for at least 20 years. I use it when I need it. I go several days and sometimes weeks without taking it. I get some pain relief. I am never pain free I don't use enough to kill the pain just enough to make it bearable.

Vicodin ES (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: I've had back pain for almost 3 years now, sometimes to the point of tears due to simple actions like walking or bending. After being put on this medication 3-4 doses daily, I have had the pain relieved, and my actual mood and focus has increased at work. My previous evaluations and reviews were below average and now after being put on this treatment my last two reviews have increased to above average. It takes effect quite quickly and lasts for the directed amount of time on the prescription. The only con I have for this medication is that it affects myself in a negative way during intercourse. I have found when on the medication my climax takes 3-4 times as long or not at all during that time. Quite frustrating.

Vicodin ES (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: I would like to say that I have been in pain for approximately 4 years and finally have met with a good doctor who has put me on this medication. I take 7.5 mg pill 4 times daily and it has helped me to be able to move around more as well as being able to get things done. I am glad to have found a good doctor to have helped me feel better, to not be so miserable, and I wish people would not talk about the bad of using narcotic pain relievers as it has been the only thing that has helped me .

Vicodin ES (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: I have a problem with my rotator cuff (shoulder) which causes extreme pain. My doctor put me on a anti-inflammatory drug and Vicodin ES for the pain. I was almost pain free.
