I have scolilis and moderate arthritis in my neck, lower back and both wrists been taking 2 Norco 5/325mg in the morning two at night, never more than 4/day going on 10 years and now my doctor wants me off! I used to take 6-8 500mg Aspirin every day and I have tried Tylenol, Advil but Nothing works for me as well as the Norco. Am I wrong in not wanting to quit after 10 years? I know all the side effects but what medicine doesn't have any side effects? I am 67 years old and the Norco allows me to function without the constant pain I have everyday.
