hi, thanks for all the positive feedback. Is your liver disease from Vics?
I myself do not consider you a long user.. You are smart enough to start questioning what you are doing so stop now.. I do have Liver disease last checked stage 2 with hep C so long term use can lead to bad things... Your liver when healthy can repair its self to a point, why not let it and stop the Vics.. Be good to yourself and your liver the benefit will be peace of mind... Take care lesa
I really don't think i'm addicted to the vic's yet. If i go 2 or 3 days without them i don't have strong withdraw symptoms or anything. But the reason i asked is because i am currently without insurance. I was wondering if it would be worth my $ to go see a dr after taking the vicodin for 3 months without a script. I don't really know what people mean when they say "long term use" can have neg effects on the liver. Is long-term use 1 year? 6 years? a month?
sure its possible and honestly i dont know too much about the effects of single high dose usage on the liver. I do know that during the height of my usage I was over 6,000 mg per day (and Im talking that was just counting the hours btwn about 5 a.,m and 9 pm that day!) About a year or so ago i did have a liver function test done and my numbers were O K then, but who knows how my liver's been holding up since then. I still used for awhile off and on after that and had no further blood tests done. Are you trying to quit the pills, or just wondering if you can continue taking your dose and not kill yourself via liver damage? You really need to stop taking them because sooner or later somethings gotta give. Good luck to you
