I don't know if this is where I should post this so forgive me if it's not. I know that soon I will need to taper off of my Norco. Been on it for about 9 months. Before surgery and then after surgery. Surgeries were March 11 and March 13. Been taking 2 every 6 hours (only 6 in a 24 hour period). So my question is...if anyone else has been in my predicament did your surgeon help you taper off your meds? Did he work with you? My doctor keeps telling me not to do it too early but what is too early and what should I do to taper off? If I have to do this on my own I have no idea what to do. There was an incident a few months ago where I didn't have my meds for the weekend and my withdrawals were horrible. Anyway, just trying to prepare myself and wondered what others experiences were.
