I recently weened myself off the vicodin. My last week I was just taking a half a pill and haven't taken anything since Tuesday night. Doc wants me to only take it when I aboslutely need it.Summer coming and I would like to enjoy a drink with friends once in awhile.How long after stopping this drug can I have a occational beer? Do I have to be off it completely? Say I take one pill a week, how long between do I have to wait?I now not to mix but everyones opinion is different even the docs and the pharmasists.
