It depends on the dose of hydrocodone obviously but it may be possible to get some minor pain relief from a 10mg tab, however it probably won't be a whole lot more than you'd get from 800mg of ibuprofen or some tylenol. I would like to add though that as an opiate addict it will likely be best to avoid opiate pain meds unless you really feel like you're going to die. It is important I think for us to really think about how much we actually need opiate pain meds and make sure it's not the addict inside of us tricking us into getting back to using again. Speaking for myself all medical decisions go through my addictionologist and I have to really look at my motives very carefully. Also something else that should be very obvious is to not be taking any meds without a doctor prescribing them. Good luck hope you find a safe effective solution for your problem:)

Do anything and everything to put your head into any other place, go swimming, walk the dog, call a friend talk to the old timers that know that this day will pass and tomorrow, the sun will rise and you will be one day closer to sanity! Good Luck, belive in yourself, your the only one that can address this problem ,it belongs to only you! Find a Dr. that you can be honest with an open minded progressive thinker. Saboxone is new and with our age group and individal differances it's extremly important !
