Norco Opiate Pain Medication
Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) & Valium prescribed after acdf for pain or spasms. After 10 days none present. Only have cough & intermittent numbness. Is it ok to stop meds?
Good for you: Glad to hear acdf (cervical spine surgery) has worked out for you with no pain or spasms for 10 days. At 10 days out, valium & Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) would be used as needed. If there is no pain, insomnia, anxiety or spasms, there is no good reason to take these. Persistent cough, numbness, difficulty swallowing should be reported to the spine surgeon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is tramadol an opiate? Can it be used in conjunction, properly with norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen)?

Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not right action: Chronic narcotic medication for back pain will continue to lead to increasing doses due to tolerance issues & needs to be addressed via multifaceted approach that usually does not include a fusion which accounts for 10% of patients. See a pain management specialist for further treatment options other than injection, exercise, weight control , avoidance of tobacco, good sleep habits all play role. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
