..and I need an alternative. I have really bad back pains and they gave me Norco 5/325 pills but the problem is I have a esophageal stricture as of the last month which makes it super hard for me to take pills so they get stuck I didn't know it could be in liquid until tonight so maybe I can ask next time but for now I took one tonight because I'm in alot of pain and it had a super hard time going down I only take them maybe 2 or 3 a week but I am looking for a safe easier way to make them softer or something so they can go down better does any one have ideas I don't want to get sick or anything so idk if I should crush it any advice on what works for anyone that has similar problems would be greatly appreciated thank you.
