    Hi all. I'm curious about trying heroin and I'm wondering- I have to take4 Norcos (hydrocodone) per day to control my pain. Is my tolerance to the Norcos going to give me a cross tolerance to heroin? PLEASE do respond. I don't want to OD. I've decided that if I try it I'm going to smoke it since that seems the safest route.

    yes, it definitely will produce tolerance, just be careful with how much you consume.

    will will most likely have tosmoke more than other people because of your opiate tolerance

    I was just trying to say, if you are an inexperienced user do not just assume a certain tolerance level and go overboard.

    Exactly, don't overdo it. Cross tolerance between all opiates exists, however you definetly want to start small, and build up. Might snorting be a safer way???
