Side Effects of Vicodin Abuse

Vicodin® has many side effects. Early comparisons concluded that Vicodin and morphine were equivalent for pain control. However, it is now considered that a dose of 15 mg (1/4 gr) of Vicodin is equivalent to 10 mg (1/6 gr) of morphine. Vicodin is considered to be morphine-like in all respects.
