Can vicodin reduce pain while getting a tattoo?

Can vicodin reduce pain while getting a tattoo?

Don't do it: Vicodin is a controlled substance and you'd be self-administering without a physician's permission, which is still illegal and probably rightly so.

What is better for pain after shoulder surgery: lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) or percocet?

Depends: Lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) contains hydrocodone and Percocet contains oxycodone, two different opiates. On a purely mg to mg basis, oxycodone is usually stronger but different people react to different opiates differently. If it were me i would start with percocet.
