  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 325-5 mg Three times daily
Advice & Tips: If you have respiratory problem, take w/ caution. Also, make sure you eat something while taking it d/t stomach discomfort. Lastly, expect moderate to severe constipation! This also just treats the physical pain; not the neurological dx I have. It does help me sleep which is great b/c I was sleep-deprived. DO NOT take w/ any other depressant or alcohol

    Major (for pain)

  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 5 x 325 mg-10 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I take the 10/325 dosage. I would rather just take the "10" without taking any Tylenol as this really is not necessary. The Hydrocodone is the pain killer that I need for MS pain. I would NOT be able to go to work full-time still without this. I wen't through five (5) years of agony before my doctors would give me anything and missed a LOT of days of work.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
