Back Problems board


I am still on Norco 10/350's, and I am over 2 years out. My doctor does lecture on decreasing the meds from time to time. When he gives out the same prescription he does notate that I have chronic unrelenting pain and that it does warrant the prescription. I think they are afraid that they will get in trouble for these meds. My doctor only has a class 3 for meds. I can't stop them now and sure couldn't have gone off at 4 weeks. I just had the surgery pain and saddle anesthesia then. I'm in California. I know they put the pressure on the doctors and insurance companies to get people off prescription meds, but 4 weeks, that's crazy. :mad:
