Latest episode of House had Cutty dumping House cause he took vicodin before he visited her on her (supposed) deathbed. Episode finished with a scene where house dramatically takes TWO Vicodin pills (orally) in the bathroom. oooohhhh
WTF ever, vicodin addiction is IMPOSSIBLE – or nearly anyways. Why? It has so much acetaminophen in it you would die of liver failure in no time if you took enough pills to get moderately stoned. Heck, even the US medical whatever recently REDUCED their max acetaminophen recommendation from one gram to 800mg. How much is in an “extra strength” vicodin? 750MG per 7mg hydrocodone. How much in regular? 500mg per 5mg hydrocodone. Get the trend? TWO PILLS maxes out your DAILY DOSE unless you are DUMB or don’t care.
There is a conspiracy afoot to ban all use of any drug that provides any “pleasure”, and the media blitz against vicodin is a perfect example of that. (note: he is not really getting pure hydrocodone, that doesn’t exist in the USA but regardless that isn’t high up on the abusable list of opiates)
here is a quote from wiki:
Per os hydrocodone has a MEDD factor of .4, meaning that 1 mg of hydrocodone is equivalent to .4 mg of intravenous morphine. However, because of morphine’s low oral bioavailability, there is a 1:1 correspondence between orally administered morphine and orally administered hydrocodone.
BTW Mathew Perry, you are a fucking pussy and your interview saying that dentists are to blame for prescribing this “very powerful medication like candy” is loathsome. Oh, the pain and suffering people are enduring for mindless fear of addiction! PISS OFF.
