Less tylenol in your vicodin and getting brand name instead of generic may help. Alternating with ultram (tramadol) which contains no tylenol and using vicodin sparingly may help as well. That's what I do. If you use too much ultram, it can make you itch as well, but I don't get it as long as I take the right dose. For some reason, ultram seems ok, even better, on my liver than a tylenol based pain pill. Tylenol and NSAIDS are very very bad on the liver. If you can get a 10/325 instead of a 10/500 or whatever vicodin they are giving you, or better yet, an opiate with no tylenol, would be better maybe. I like ultram and have been on it for years. non addicting but works like an opiate, all the benefits none of the hassles and pain. I take 6 a day every day and use vicodin prn. so many a month when things get bad, that way the vicodin keeps working good.
