Jerry,

First of all, this is great!

But...couldn't they give you something without acetaminophen? Vicodin is hydrocodone with acetaminophen (APAP). Might be a bit hard on the liver if you're thinking long-term. You'll have to weigh this, and monitor your APAP intake.

Problem is, I don't think they make a tablet with only hydrocodone. They only make oxycodone preparations, as I recall.

Did your depression ever respond to Percocet or any of the other oxycodone containing combinations?

I don't mean to meddle with a good thing, but I would be concerned about taking acetaminophen daily if you can avoid it. It's like taking Tylenol PM for sleep problems only - why not just take the diphenhydramine (unless you have a headache too)?

Anyway, hope it works for you!

Best,

Matt
