Re: Norco addiction
Feb 23, 2008
I'd keep tapering down to 1/2 pill or so. And, if you could get a script for some type of anxiety med, that would help a lot....Especially at night to help you sleep. I bet when you take the Norco at night, it calms you and you sleep well. Anxiety meds are perfectly fine to take long term if needed, or you could ween from those as well... which would be easier than the Norco. The first little while on anxiety med would probably need to be a fairly good dose to mask the absence of the Norco, and then you could slowly decrease to a good stable dose. Just my .02. Good luck!

If you have a plentiful supply and inventory isn't an issue, I'd suggest tapering as slowly as you can. It takes your body a while to adjust. You could even taper by 1/4 if you'd like. 1/2 is probably more practical because it's difficult to cut a pill more than 1/2. Once you stabilize on a given dose, you can taper again. Let your body tell you when it's time. Giving up the last little bit may be the toughest, but that's where the anxiety meds come into play.

If I was forced into recommending a schedule, I'd say a week to week and a half in between each taper. A couple days may not be enough and anything longer is probably a waste of time.

Good luck!
