I am almost 6 weeks out of ADR L4-L5 and ALIF of L5-S1. I have been taking Vicodin 5mg/500 three times a day. I would like to get off of the vicodin and try to control my pain with over the counter meds. I take them at 7,2,8. Can I start by cutting out the 2 o'clock dose, and how long do I do this? A week, two weeks, then move on to the 7 am dose?
I would like to get to the point where I only need it when the pain is unbarable. Anyone out there have any suggestions?
