    I injured (hurniated 2 disc) my back at work in early Sep. I am planning surgery now... But i have been on pain killers since the injury... I have developed big tolerance ( i can take 6 pills and it not help the pain). But i dont think im addicted because i can go days without taking them.... I have done this several times just to prove to myself i wasnt addicted.... I really would just like to know how this drug is effecting my body and why i developed a tolerance... THANK YOU. :)

    you've been injured 4 months, and you've been taking pills on a daily basis.


    of course you're going to work up a tolerance, precription medication is meant to be used on a 30 day period and no more...


    you've basically flooded your body with the painkillers and you've not flushed them out of your system at all, so the tolerance has built up and the pain remains...

    stop taking the pills for an extended time and see what happens...
    you may go through withdrawals and you may not...

    since you've put so much into you it can take a few days for it to leave the system entirely.

    whenever you have the surgery, you're going to rely on something else as well, or you'll lay there in pain for awhile and have some pills that won't do anything...

    :dunno:

    wouldn't say you're addicted quite yet, but for the long term, you never know, your body has a way of playing tricks on you...



    yeah, if that doesn't make sense, its because i'm falling asleep :rofl:

    I work in a pharmacy so this thread drew my attention. I would just like to let you know that every hydrocodone tablet generally has 500mg of Tylenol in each. Some have 325 and some have 650, I believe. The most prescribed ones have 500mg each though. The general rule is that the max of Tylenol you should take in a day is 4gm. That means the max you should ever take is 8 tablets in one day. What if you take more? Welcome to liver failure.
    I would not quit the medication cold turkey. Discuss this with your prescriber if you are concerned. The area I live in, the South, has a major problem with this medication. I wouldn't like to see another person added to the list. Best of luck to you!
