  • Yes, I saw a new report about it. I believe you can get vicodin without the tylenol. Is it codeine that's in vicodin?

  • Yes. Don't they realize all we are going to do is take the codiene and add tylenol? Stupid.

  • Well considering that they are worried about acetaminophen over dosing, it makes sense.

  • No I did not hear it. That's ok though. I can't handle Vicodin or Percocet. Must be from the Codeine which I learned I am allergic to and never knew it was in either of those products. You can get it in Tylenol. It's wicked.

  • I am not surprised. Vicodin is a legal form of cocaine and millions of people become addicted everyday.

  • Vicodin and cocaine are on different sides of the upper/downer spectrum. Many people safely use vicodin to treat pain. People will abuse drugs whether they are legal or not.

  • One more way that the stupid people in this word screw up things for everything else. If you OD yourself on acetomenaphen your a dumbass. Maybe they should just make the tylenol boxes much bigger and draw the directions in crayon.

    A legal form of cocaine? Are you kidding me, lol? There are no remotely similar components in cocaine and Vicodin. You've been misinformed, dear!!!! that's ridiculous!!!!!!!!!!
