I started taking pain medication due to a bad tooth that had to be "fixed" 3 times before getting a root canal. My dentist assured me that everything would be fine soon and I just needed to take Norcos until the pain subsided. I did as I was told, not really concerned about addiction because I don't like how they make me feel. I now take them just to keep from being sick. I get ridiculously sick if I don't take hydrocodone every day. I don't even like them. I feel like I need detox but I don't want to ruin my life. I have a lot of people depending on me and I just don't know how I can do it.
