I was hoping for advise from those of you who have more experience with narcotics than I do. I am currently taking Lyrica and Hydrocodone (Vicodin 7.5/750). In your experience, is it better to take the HC on a regular basis ( I am allowed 3 per day). The idea being to keep things on an even level. Since my pain is never gone, there is always the need for relief. However, I thought maybe it is better to take it only on an as needed basis when the pain is really bad. I'm not sure if taking it on a regular basis will help avoid flares or not. If it does not help avoid them, I suppose it's better to take it only when I'm really bad, but I'm afriad that once I'm there, it may be harder to get the relief.
