i've recently been prescribed Vicodin (10/100) for excruciating headaches/migrains. the only other med i take is Ambien.
now my girlfriend was arguing that Ambien + opiates (is Vicodin one?) = DANGER! DANGER!
now, at most, i can see taking 5 Vicodin a day but she says if i screw up and take 10 on a day along with the Ambien, it could be fatal but i was under the impression it would take a lot Lot LOT more.
who's right here?
to further clarify, i'm a 180 lb. male with 0 tolerance (i just barely got prescribed the Vicodin).
any feedback would be appreciated. thanks in advance.
