I was in a freak accident got dragged by my new car transmission slipped from park into reverse. Dragged me between 6 to 12 feet. I tore all muscles from my left side of the rib cage. It hurts like hell nothing broken. Road rash bad hospital didn't even clean it my poor mother had to dig the gravel outta my back. They gave me Vicodin went to family doc gave me tramadol didn't do anything they called me in Vicodin. Works a lot better but they put take one every 12 hours. They last me about 6 hours. I've had pain meds before never heard regular Vicodin lasting 12 solid hours. Anyone else have this written before?
While Vicodin is usually written as every 4 - 6 hours your doctor may have wanted to give you a certain quantity and stretch out over the most days. Option is whether to run out early if you take more than every 12 hours and hence not get anymore or stretch it out the full amount of time and be able to have script renewed if necessary. Did the doctor mention supplementing the pain relief with additional Tylenol or ibuprofen?
