Clarify...: Vicodin is prescribed according to the patient's needs for pain management, which can vary depending upon the duration of the expected pain, the reason it is being prescribed, and the intensity of the pain. Usually it is prescribed for a dose every 4-6 hours as needed for pain, and it could be anywhere from 16 for just a few days of anticipated discomfort, up to 30 for longer terms.
