  • Perceived effectiveness for Fibromyalgia: Slight
  • Perceived effectiveness for Depressed mood: None
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Sometimes
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: I don't know how this treatment got put under the "depression" treatment category. I can't delete that although I would like to. I ONLY use it sparingly for Fibromyalgia and I find even a small dosage causes a headache which rather defeats the purpose. Not as useful as it was before.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Pain: Moderate
  • Perceived effectiveness for Fibromyalgia: Slight
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: I only take it on the REALLY bad days, when the pain is so bad it makes me cry. It doesn't help a lot, but takes the edge off. It helps me sleep better when the pain is very bad. I won't take it if I have to drive, so many times I can't take it when I'd like to.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Pain: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Severe
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 2050 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Had to switch to Norco - 325 mg. (acetaminophen) / 10 mg. (hydrocodone). The Vicodin has 750 mgs. (acetaminophen) / 7.5 (hydrocodone). Too much acetaminophen/tylenol content is horrible for your liver.

Oct 18, 2010 (Started Oct 18, 2009)

  • Perceived effectiveness for Chronic pain: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Sometimes
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: Vicodin does absolutely nothing for migraines and cluster headaches, but it is great for those times when I need to take the edge off other types of pain in my body. One example is when my lower back acts up because I can't do any sort of massage to relieve the pain, and there isn't much that works for it. If the pain is really bad, I will take a Vicodin and a Flexoril at night before bed, and sleep like a baby.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Stomach pain, Stomach upset
