Hi, I am Kathy, I also dont know anything about norco, valium I have a close relationship with, so I agree with the advice you have been given. You cant listen to all the hype about oxycotin, oxycodone, etc. the media have played a huge part in making people scared. As with any narcotic there is always the risk of dependency. I truth if you (and by you I dont mean you specifically) take narcotic meds over long periods of time the truth is you are going to be dependent. Dependent on the relief you can get, and the life you can live, because without my meds, I wouldnt and couldnt get out of the bed.
Just as a diabetic needs insulin, people with high blood pressure need there meds to live, so do all of of suffering from cp. So take it slow, if you find yourself sick to your stomach, they can add phenegen, the generic is promethzine. It have allways worked for me. I of course havent been that kind of sick as I have been on narcotic meds over 15 years. But they even work if I have an upset stomach for whatever reason.
As usual, I have babbled on longer than necessary, but as i said the advice you were already given, sounds very good to me. Hang in there, it does get better.
Good luck and take care
