In brief: 4-5 days

Constipation is usually part of taking vicodin and diarrhea is one of the withdrawal symptoms? Diarrhea and body aches may begin 18-24 hours after stopping usually peak in 3-5 days then improve, lowgrade withdrawal symptoms, trouble sleeping, cravings, depressed mood often last longer. Seek a doctor for medications that may ease withdrawal symptoms.

In brief: Depends

It depends on how long one has been using vicodin.
The half life is usually 48-72 hours. Increase water in diet.
