I've started with 5/500 mg of Lortab in April 2005 (severe low back pain-sciatica) and have moved up the ladder from that to Lortab 7.5/750, 10-325 and now 10/500 mg! I ONLY take it for medical purpose ONLY and NEVER for pleasure-pain only, 3x a day. Is this considered stopping me abruptly (cold turkey) from Lortab to Darvocet? I see him every 6-8 wks and will do this on 4/16. He says he does it with all his patients- I wonder! He puts me right back on Lortabs after the 20 days. He makes me feel like an addict!How do I handle this and the upcoming withdrawal!!! Please help! ANY feedback greatly appreciated!
