So, I have teeth trouble and I was prescribed Vicodin. And I took ONE and a couple houses later I took a little bit of cough medicine (have a cold as well). I am going to sleep WELL.

My question is how much pain and tolerance for Vicodin must house have? I mean I could not trust myself to practice medicine, hell I almost did not write this!

Wow, drive a motorcycle, prescribe medications, inject medications, do lumbar punctures, and not make repeated passes at Dr.Cuddy (that one must really be hard): all on, what 2 or 3 Vicodin every couple hours or 2 clinic patients (which ever come first)? My grandfather kept several bars in business and he could not have had this sort of tolerance.

If he had enough pain to balance out that much Vicodin then they should have left him in the coma, it would have been more humane. Now I need to sleep so tomorrow I can be awake enough to worry about what I said in this post.

Use Wikipedia, instead.

While much of House medical stuff is dubious, the drug abuse but still able to function part is the least so. While the amounts may exceed what a person can take without injury (especially since Vicodin has Tylenol in it), people actually take several of these things together several times a day and are about to function.

Between built up tolerance and Pain 'using up' some of the pain medications effects, there are people that do this and function. Albeit illegally, dangerously and with some if not much impairment, but the point is that there are some that can drive and work on this stuff and I was wasted from 1 am to 11 am from 1 Vicodin and a sip or Robitussin A. C.

Anyway I am no longer unable to walk in straight lines, nor do my sentences sound like one long word, and I am able to perceive the gravity of matters (including matter and gravity) again.
