since the latest "lawyer-happy" suits, drug co.'s are now making the HCL form of vicodin now. Oxycodone's been doing it for awhile but there's been a slew of lawsuits claiming the tylenol in the drug is causing liver damage.
What's sad is I'm pretty sure we all know how bad tylenol is and would prefer our meds to be the narcotic only- not until a bunch of ambulance chaser's see $, do the drug co.'s finally do what's safe for the patient's and eliminate- reluctantly- the tylenol. Before, the co's get paid by the maker's of tylenol to include it in med's. Now, they're gonna lose a lot of $ by NOT using tylenol.
Bottom line, drug's are a huge $$ business. Who ends up paying?? The patients! We have no choice and that's wrong!
Just my opinion
