Hello, I really could use some advice on this topic, I take 2-2 1/2 Vicodin 5-500mg tablets daily. Now to some I know this is not a larger does but to me it is, even more so that I don't even like putting over the counter drugs (such as cold med, allergey meds ect) in to my body. About 4 months ago I was prescribed the pills to help with a pinched nerve and now I feel as if I have to take them to fuction. I am tired of depending on a pill to get me threw the day and I have enough left to taper but I am not sure how or were to start, any help would really be appricated.
