This question has also been asked and answered here: How long does Vicodin stay in your system?
Sorry that no one has gotten back to you, but they will now. The half life of Vicodin is about four hours. that means that half of the medication is out of your system in four hours. That's about how often you can take it. If you keep mathematically halving the dosage, the last pill will take 20 hours about to be out of your system. Since you have not been taking them continually, you probably will have no problem stopping them. Just start taking one less/day, and go each day like that until you take none. If that is too fast, though it shouldn't be, slow it up, and wait two to three days before cutting down on another pill. You didn't say how many pills you were taking a day, but from your question I got the idea that some days you have not taken any. In that case, it should be no problem. If I am wrong, please write back, and give more information. good luck!!
