For the past years, I have been taking 3-4 7.5/325 vicodin per
day for "total body osteoarthritis". I have tried NSAIDS, aspirin, and Ultram without any relief. Also, because of a previous HA, I want to avoid NSAIDS. When vicodin
was changed from Schedule III to II this year, my GP became more reluctant to continue my 3-4 pill per
day "habit" due to regulatory pressure to wean patients completely off opiods of any strength.
