I know your tolerance to narcotics increases with time. You would have to increase the dosage to get the same effect (a high for example). Does this also mean the dosage would have to increase to relieve pain?
I take Norco 10 mg 4x daily for chronic pain due to lupus. I'm scheduled for a 2nd hip replacement in 2 months. My surgeon routinely prescribes Norco 7.5 mg x2 every 4 hours post-op. Since that's not much more than what I take routinely I am concerned.
