My friend has been on pain management meds for about 6 years. He started with Vicodin, proceeded to Norco and was taking upwards to 15-18 pills a day. His doctor didn't think that was safe given the amount of acetaminophen
he was consuming daily so yesterday during his monthly appointment she switched him Norco to Oxy IR 30mg 4-5 times a day. He is wondering now since he's all out of Norco's if he'll suffer any withdrawls and what his experience will be with this new medication.
Has anybody had any experiences with this? Do you think the dosage his doctor gave him is the right one given the amount of Norco he was taking? If he's ever withdrawing, will it be worse that with Norco?
Any words of wisdom welcome.
