Vicodin is an opioid (narcotic) medication.  If you took it regularly for awhile, you would probably experience some withdrawal symptoms when you quit taking it, which could include depression and fatigue.  How long those symptoms last would deprend on how much you were taking and for how long.  If the symptoms worsen, contact your doctor.
