I've taken norco's for years, I don't want the fusion surgery suggested, and my insurance wont cover injections, I need stronger medication?

I've taken norco's for years, I don't want the fusion surgery suggested, and my insurance wont cover injections, I need stronger medication?

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 more

I've been taking norcos pills for 2 years and I just found out I'm 2 months pregnant. Should I stop taking them right away or should I wait?

I've been taking norcos pills for 2 years and I just found out I'm 2 months pregnant. Should I stop taking them right away or should I wait?

Wean: Neonatal abstinence syndrome ( withdrawal) is an expected and treatable condition that follows prenatal exposure to opioid agonists such as Norco. However why not get off these medications and spare the baby and spare you the worry? I would work with your Prescriber to wean you off this medication now. You do not need to have a baby born with the potential to have withdrawal at birth. ...Read more

I accidently somehow took 2 5/325mg norco. Then I guess I forgot that I took them already and took 2 more. That was 1.5 hours ago, will I die?

Must be careful: Accidental overdose with Norco is one big reason why people are getting hurt and dying. If you are feeling tired, lethargic, shortness of breath, sleepy or other symptoms go to the ER. Most likely you will not be harmed this time, but you must be very very careful with these pain medications. Follow only your doctors regime, don't share meds, don't drink, and use the least amount necessary. ...Read more
