I've been taking 2 to 4 norco 10/325 a day for about 4 months and had just detoxed from methadone three weeks prior to getting this script for herniated discs in my back. I know what its like to withdrawn from methadone and I don't want to go through that again. My question is can you decrease dose daily until its out of your system? I don't want to be on opiates anymore and was hoping for a solution better than cold turkey. Im only 27 and can't live like this any more. Any help would be much appreciated.

Yes, you can wean yourself off Norco without withdrawals. I have done it several times. You are on a low dose and shouldn't have much of a problem. Reduce your daily dosage by half a pill every 5 days and you'll be fine.
If you need more instruction, be happy to explain further.
