... have 1 norco left, so what can I use OTC, til tomorrow. The numbness and swelling is going down and the pain is a bit more noticeable. I'm female, 5'6" @ 120 lbs, 58 yes old and pretty physically fit. I took the norco as prescribed first week then just as needed. About one 5-325 TB hydrocodone/acetametaphen every 4 hrs. Then I was able to wait 6-9 hrs in between doses.
