I have had rheumatoid and osteoarthritis since 2000 and have been on this and it has lost its ability to mask the pain but after so long of taking it I am not what I would consider an addict. I guess it goes with the territory.

For chronic pain patients hydrocodone is a bad alternative. For any doctors out there, if you have a chronic pain patient and you want to help them, give them a low does of a long acting narcotic vice this drug. Hydrocodone is only good for post minor surgical pain. It is also highly addictive.
