Medical Research

Cruftbox is doing some FDA testing, so I decided to assist him. He was trying to figure out which pain relievers dissolve most quickly. Although I hate to waste my precious stash of Vicodin, I figured for the Good Of Science I would do my own research.

My lab consisted of one (1) tablet of 500mg Hydrocodine (generic for Vicodin), one (1) digital stopwatch, and one (1) Bobba Fett "The Empire Strikes Back" Collector's Glass from Burger King.

Time :00 shows the dry tablet. It began to dissolve as soon as the water hit it. As you can see, after 30 seconds it was well on its way to providing eternal glee to its patient. There was little change after that.

It was hard to tell if the entire pill had broken apart or if it was just the outer layer. After 2 minutes I decided to simulate the motion of the stomach by giving the glass a small swirl. Indeed, there was no cohesion to the Vicodinicles. You can only see the small core of the original pill.

CONCLUSION: Vicodin is yummy.

If you are over 65 years of age, you may be more likely to experience side effects from xanax. Your doctor may prescribe a lower dose of the medication.
