Data Entry Job – SCAM!

Change in dosage - withdrawal?
So two weeks ago my PM doctor changed my dosage of my medication. I currently take Norco 10/325, one tablet every twelve hours or I can cut them in half and take one every six. I was previously on, as of about two and a half weeks ago, taking the same thing but 1/2 tablet to one whole tablet every six hours. I'm unsure why he changed my dose but decided to just work with it. His nurse was also unsure when I asked her.
Anyway, ever since the dose change my pain has been a little worse but nothing too severe. But in the last ten days, I have become anxious and cannot sleep. I currently take a daily medication for anxiety and take Ativan on severe days. My anxiety is to the point where I feel the need to take an Ativan with no external triggers. My question is, could this dose change be related to the anxiety? I'm curious because of the timing of everything. Or should I consider talking to my PCP about changing up my anxiety medications? I know that anxiety and sleeplessness can be related to withdrawal so I'm unsure if I should talk to my PM about all of this.
