It depends: Your question is somewhat vague. All medications when appropriately prescribed for its indication and taken as directed by a physician should not be a problem. Vicodin is hydrocodone and Acetaminophen and is indicated for moderate to severe pain. The issue is the misuse/abuse of the medication. It has the potential for physical dependence, cause respiratory depression when taken in excess & death.
In person evaluation: If you need a prescription for an opioid like Vicodin, you need to seek an inperson evaluation for appropriateness. An online physician source isn't a feasible, or appropriate, mechanism for something like this. I do wish you the best of luck though and hope your issue can be addressed sooner rather than later.See 1 more doctor answer

Addiction: Addiction alters one's ability to think clearly, make good choices and use sound judgement. It affects lives negatively usually in the form of time spent obsessing over obtaining the drug, and using the drug.

The addict can no longer feel normal without the substance they are abusing.See 2 more doctor answers

It should not be crushed, or tampered with in any way. This is responsible use of medications. As a rule vicodin has to be swallowed whole and taken according to the md's strict instructions.See 1 more doctor answer
Vicodin + NyQuil: Do not take both of these drugs together. Nyquil has a significant amount of alcohol. This combination would be the same as taking vicodin with an alcohol beverage. This combination will have an additive depressive effect on your body systems and could very well have serious adverse consequences.
It depends: Addiction is a disease characterized by craving, thinking about med all the time, overusing (taking more than prescribed) and results in harm to the person (dui, loss of job, family, etc). Risk of addiction is based on genetic and environmental factors. Some people get addicted easily, some never do. Lortab is one of the most abused drugs on the market but most people don't develop an addiction.See 1 more doctor answer
No test: Overdose symptoms can be attributed to both the hydrocodone and Acetaminophen components of vicodin. Excess hydrocodone can cause a slowed heart rate, low blood pressure, difficult breathing, cold and clammy skin, extreme drowsiness which can progress to coma, cardiac arrest and death. Excess Acetaminophen can cause dark urine, yellowing of the skin and whites of the eyes, low blood sugar.
