I, personally don't care for what vicodin's do to me, but for pain, I like the darvocets. I've got d. & lots of pain, all over my bod, sometimes. It constipates most people, but brings me to normal. I only take them for the pain, not on regular dosing schedule. In fact, I get so worried about the addictive qualities of the narcotic, that I often go awhile in pain before taking one. But It works for the pain most of the time. And the break from d. is sooo nice. It takes fewer pills to eliminate pain when I take darvos, than any other pain reliever (2-3 darvos vs. 8-10 other pills a day at times). I am so glad I'm allergic to anaprox (base drug used to make naproxen, ie. aleve) I hear it's B.A.D. for us UCers. Just be very careful, vicodin's one of the worst to get addicted to!!!!
