I was taking norco three times daily for herniated discs for over a year when my doc told me that I had to change to time released med. He said that he couldn't keep me on a short acting opioid for chronic pain any longer. Ho put me on oxycontin 10 mg twice daily and I hate it. He refuses to put me back on the norco. How can I find a doc that will change me back to what was working without calling around sounding stupid? I live in Shreveport, LA and if anyone lives here or knows what I should do I would be grateful for any advice.
