Were you looking for information about Vicodin? Vicodon is a common misspelling of Vicodin.
Vicodin® (hydrocodone/APAP), a type of narcotic, is commonly used to treat certain types of pain. This prescription medication is also a controlled substance, which means specific laws control its sale and use. A few of the conditions you should let your healthcare provider know about before taking this medication include a head injury, liver or kidney disease, or a history of alcohol or drug abuse.
Because of the medication's strong potential for abuse, it is not possible to buy Vicodin without a prescription. In addition, people who are taking the drug without a healthcare provider's supervision may experience uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms if they stop taking it too suddenly.
