I started hydorcodone 10/325 tablets about a year ago, supposed to be 4 per day for my TMJ (jaw pain)... The doc and dentist gave me a "few" prescriptions. The next thing i knew about 6 months into the pain meds, i was popping 6 a day, at the end of the year i was taking about 15 per day. Well, I couldnt take it anymore, i was going through a bad divorce, not sleeping, very "jumpy", etc. A little history, I'm 37, female, full-time working professional.
