I would like start off by saying that I am a 26 year old male and have been addicted to Norco since August of 2010. I started off taking the Watson brand Norco 10 mgs 3 times a day. I took them like so for about 6-8 months. Then I increased it to 6 times a day up until 3 days ago. I decided that I don't like what I am becoming and I need to get off these drugs. So I set up a taper method with my remaining Norco. It is a 14 day method. Days 1-4 I start off with 30 mgs per day then days 5-9 I decrease to 20 mg per day then days 10-12 decrease to 10 mg per day and finally days 13-14 it is 5 mg per day then stop. After this I plan on following the Thomas recipe to hopefully decrease any withdrawal. I am currently on day 3 of my taper and it has been going well. I am strong willed and have followed the regimen without taking any extra pills. Tomorrow is my last day of taking 30 mgs and then I will decrease to the 20 mgs and so on and so forth. I really hope this works because I want my old self back. I have noticed slight body aches coming on and I am taking aleve/motrin to counteract them with some success. I have also notice I have been feeling a little lethargic so I started taking a multi vitamin to see if that helps. No result yet but its only been 2 days of the multi vitamin so I guess I gotta give it some time to work.
Anyways if anyone has any more info or helpful information that would help I would love to hear it.
