I have been taking vicodin/lortab/norco for about 1 1/2 years.At most I take 2 10's in a day but I have tapered down to 2 7.5's. I wan't to stop but I am afraid to because I have so many responsibilities that I can't stop just because I'm sick. I have a toddler to take care of and I go to school. Any idea on how long I will be sick and how bad it will be? I don't take the xanax/valium every night and sometimes go days without taking it. Should I quit the norco's and just take valium for a few days? Any advice would be appreciated. I can't tell anyone what is going on with me and have no support. I'm afraid I will lose my job I don't want my life ruled by a pill.Please help!!! Thank you
