Pain medications for severe cases

Medical studies have shown that 5 mg. of Hydrocodone are equivalent to 30 g. of codeine. It has opioid properties and the potential for becoming addictive, and so its use is strictly regulated. Usually it is sold in ibuprofen or acetaminophen as a prescription-only drug; the name on the bottle may be Vicoprofen. It is useful in cases of severe pain but should not be taken regularly without strict regulation by your physician.
