Taking 10/325 lortab 3 times a day.Started @ lower dose but now here I am 1.5years later hooked.I got off ativan (lorazepam) alone.Need safe taper plan for lortab?

Opioid use: Congratulations for recognizing the need to lower your narcotic use. Ask your doctor for recommendations for other ways of treating the medical issues for which you started taking hydrocodone. I often draw up a plan for a slow taper that first lowers dose at the time pain is least. Meditation or mindfulness training can help manage pain and keep you focussed on your goal. ...Read more

I recommend you find a good integrative or functional medicine doctor and work to find and eliminate any root causes of your son's hyperactivity. Consider an educational environment more accepting of hyperactivity. MTHFR geneSNPs & Food reactions often make hyperactivity worse. ...Read more
