Were you looking for information about Vicodin? Vicaden is a common misspelling of Vicodin.
People who suffer from moderate to moderately severe pain may benefit from Vicodin® (hydrocodone/APAP). This prescription drug contains two different medications: hydrocodone and acetaminophen. Vicodin is either taken "as needed" for pain or on a scheduled basis. Seek medical attention immediately if you happen to overdose on Vicodin. Symptoms of an overdose include vomiting, a slow heart rate, or difficulty breathing.
This medication is not suitable for everyone. For example, people with Addison's disease, kidney disease, liver disease, or a history of drug or alcohol abuse may not be able to safely take Vicodin. Tell your healthcare provider about all medical conditions you have and any other medicines you are taking before beginning treatment with this medication.
