Customer Question

I have rods and screws holding my lower back together, fusing the vertabrae. Norco 10-325 does good with controlling it, but I cannot get a doctor that can write the prescriptions to me for them.

Because it's a short-acting opioid the doctors are unlikely to write it due to the pressure from the government to prevent addiction from such medications.

They are more likely to give you morphine which is longer acting or methadone. The latter is harder to get off of so morphine is safer and does a great job for pain control.
