I have Hep. C and my Dr. still prescribes to me Vicodin. Isn't this bad for my liver? What pain pill affects the liver least? Thank you for any ideas.

Well the problem you and your doctor are going to face here is that approximately 90+% of all medications are processed through the liver. There are very, very few that aren't.

When prescribing something, your doctor has to consider the risks and the benefits, there really isn't anything or a narcotic nature for pain that will be processed less through your liver. Just make sure to not abuse it and only use it as prescribed and keep all doctor's appointments.

I have read that the reason there is concern about Vicodin is the acetaminophen they combine with the hydrocodone. This doesn't make any sense to me to because if you take the correct dose of 4 Vicodin a day you get 2000 mg of acetaminophen, whereas if you must take only acetaminophen you get a total of 8000 mg a day. You can also get Vicodin with 10 mg of hydrocodone so you don't need to take more Vicodin ES than prescribed, or you can get a combination drug with hydrocodone and only 350 mg of acetaminophen, making your intake of that drug even less. Or you can get hydrocodone not combined with another drug. I don't understand the government's decision to ban Vicodin as so many people need it for pain relief and it is the acetaminophen that is in question and not the hydrocodone, and so many people need it for pain relief, including me. Now I am forced to take the 8000 mg of acetaminophen.
