Brief Answer:
Proper review, physiotherapy to be considered.

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for the query,

It s true the Vicodin has addictive effects. It s important to determine the actual cause of the pain and treat. Other pain control measures like use of physiotherapy could be associated to usual pain control measures. This shall permit use of less addictive and less potent pain killers. The usual dose however is 1 to 2 tablets that should taken every four to six hours. It is not advised to go above 10 tablets a day. The dosage of percocet depends on the specific formulation. For moderate pain, its advisable to take the 3.25/350 formulation, for when taken appropriately, addictive effects are minimal. It advisable to take one tablet four times daily , every six hours.

It is important to take these drugs only under pure medical supervision, especially if the drug is to be taken for over two weeks.

I do suggest a proper clinical review for efforts to identify why you are experiencing pain to be identified. Addition of other pain control and relaxation measures like physiotherapy should be considered. Concert with your doctor and report any unusual feeling as you take the drugs. Continues taking leads to dependence. Thanks and hope this helps. Please free asking further questions in case you need specific answers. wishing you the best of health.

Kind regards.
