Oh my yes, taper, taper, taper. Having gone thru getting off oxycodone recently, that's what I did or it would have been intolerable for me. The Vicodin you are taking has hydrocodone in it, not as strong as oxys but an opiate is an opiate ... Save yourself some pain, stomach cramping, cold sweats, hot sweats, nausea, vomiting, ... and wean yourself down to almost nothing before jumping off. Or if you want to go cold turkey, please go to a detox center so someone can watch you. Anything can happen depending on the amount taken daily. That's my best, been thru it myself, advice.
Go forth and be well ... I'll be praying for you.
