I have chronic neck pain that I have been seeing a pain management doctor for about two years now. I have been taking generic Norco 10/325 for almost 3 years. In the last couple months I have noticed that I am running out before I can renew my perscription. I get 120 tabs a month and it's just not enough. I am suppossed to take them 4x/day but have been taking them 5-6x/day. I am looking for some opinions on what to ask for when I see my Doc next week. I am tired of being in pain all the time and I'm concerned with the long-term affects on my liver. I have had liver function testing and for now everything is ok, any suggestions??
There are alternatives to the Norco. You may benefit from a longer acting med such as Oxycontin or Avinza. The next step up from Norco is Percocet which is oxycodone with acetominophen. The Oxycontin (which is just plain oxycodone with out acetominophen) and the Avinza are long acting formulas which means you wouldn't have to take as often.
Hope this helps,
