I have been taking Norco for the better part of the past 15 years due to a back surgery that went south. My wife also takes it for severe Rheumatoid Arthritis. We are both in our 60's. I am just finding out this prescribed medication is in short supply. What its going on? I understand it has been reclassified, ( thanks to the pill mills and illegal access by dope heads and unscrupulous doctors.) My doctor and those like him are telling patients us we are now having to suffer due to this problem???
