Hi its been many years of pain meds I had to try methadone once cause my new Dr wouldn't prescribe me what my old Dr had me one. the pain killer was working I had to go cold turkey, then this jerk of a Dr put me on methadone I was young didn't know anything about this. I went to this clinic took my first does then on the floor I went my body couldn't take it.
I was back in hospital then another Dr took me on & he looked at my file it looked like a book, well he put me back on my pain meds so what makes me mad in today's hard world is I honestly don't think Dr's know what there doing, It terrifies me when I have to go into hospital for renal failure plus other issues. I become there ginny big !
This last visit to the hospital was very scary didn't think I was going to pull through the Dr's tried to get me to change my pain meds I kept saying no do you have this bad stuck on your side !
I was in ICU for 4 day's well I made it & I thank you all for your support.
We are not junkies we are human beings with deadly chronic pain !

The primary harm would be the acetaminophen or the Tylenol in the hydrocodone which is the 325 apparently it's been showing lately that acetaminophen is harmful on the liver I would say the best thing for you would be to take just plain hydrocodone because Tylenol really is of no value it's only going to harm your liver so I would ask your doctor to put you on plane hydrocodone.

I made it sound like acetaminophen is in hydrocodone it's not acetaminophen is in Vicodin which is what is typically prescribed they're usually prescribed together which isn't a good idea because the Tylenol really is of no value except if you want to harm your liver and I don't think anybody wants their liver harmed so I just wanted to clarify that

Oh and Sadie, I've been on hydrocodone and oxycodone for 15 yrs. My bloodwork has been perfect all this time, so no, don't think it's of great harm if taken as directed. However, everyone is different so just keep having your blood checked!!!♥️♥️♥️
