Withdrawals: Are you saying you take four vicodin /day? If this is the case you may or may not have what you call ' strong' withdrawals. It depends a lot on how long you been on them. If you can it would be wise to taper down, take less every few days or even slower than that , by week. There are several over-the-counter medicines that can help, look elsewhere in the answers.
