I would like to tell you that vicodin contains combination of 2 pain killers that is acetaminophen along with hydrocodone bitartrate & its dose is adjusted as per severity of pain & response of patient. Its given 1-2 tablets every 4-6 hourly. Its given in 5 mg tablets generally & dose should not exceed 8 tablets a day. Consult your physician before starting it.
