I have 3 protruding lumbar discs and fibromyalgia among other things. I also have a high tolerance for medication. I'm only 22 and I've been on vicoden for four years I can already tell my body is addicted to them. I ran out and havent had one since sunday the 21st but I've been in so much pain since then too. I need some suggestions
The taper for getting off the Norco 7.5/325 at four times a day would be to go to three times a day for a week, then to 2 and a half (one in the am, half in the afternoon, and one in the evening) for a week, then to 2 pills a day for a week, then to one and a half pills a day for a week, then to 1 pill a day for a week, then to half a pill a day for a week then stop. If you don't want to take 5 weeks to do this the quickest I would do the reduction is every 3 to 5 days, but you run the risk of feeling some withdrawals if you go that fast.
Hope this helps,
