Vicadin don't do #$%$. Get percocet. I had a tooth blow up a while back - got some percocet from my dentist over the weekend to hold me over till the Monday appointment. Had to take my daughter to the airport so I toughed it out till see got off. Puked in the bathroom at the airport from the pain. Got her off and got home - went out back washed a couple of percocet's down with a couple of beer and in 30 minutes pure nirvanah.
