I have chronic back/sciatica pain. I have some level of pain all day every day. I spent 2 years of my life trying to find a doctor to "fix" my problem. No one can. The best plan is to manage it with medication so I can continue to function i.e. family/business etc.
My doctor and I are considering switching me from 2 10/325 percocets 3 times a day to Norco.
I was on Norco before for several years and switched in December to Percocet because the Norco began to lose its effectiveness.
The same thing is happening now with the percocets. I don't want to "up my dose" or switch to oxycontin as some have reccomended.
His theory is that we can simply switch back and for every 6 months or so and that way my tolerance will never grow for either one.
Has anyone had success with this type of program?
