I have fibromyalgia; if I take one hydrocodone apap 5-325 a day, I feel good for about 12 hours.?
I have also had two surgeries the the past year. Tendon repair on my hip, which has gone very badly and lung surgery, which went well.The vicodin doesn't take the pain completely from my hip, but does make me feel all over better. Just wondering why so little helps and if I can become addicted to it? I do not take each day. I only have a few left from the last surgery and no refills.

Carol, yes you can get addicted to any narcotic medicine that you take, I also have fibromyalgia and have to take medicines everyday,I also have 3 kinds of neuropathy,so in order to be able to function i have to take it, try going to a pain clinic, they know about pain and how to treat it. Good Luck Rita V
