stronger medications
my doctor put me on Norco 7.5/325 and it doesn't help with my pain. How do I talk to my doctor and get something stronger without sounding like a drug seeker?

Unfortunately you can't.
Your doctor has a responsibility to ensure patient safety, according to
the prescribing guidelines regarding  Norco.

It is possible that you may have developed tolerance to Norco, where higher doses may be needed to produce the same level of pain relief.
Physical & Psychic dependence and tolerance are more likely
with prolonged use of it.
Also beware of the potential habit-forming properties of the Hydrocodone part of Narco.

My suggestion is to explore other options for pain management, while staying with your current Norco dosage.
Eventually, should you find effective alternatives you may want to wean off it
with the help of your prescribing doctor.

If you do a search here under "IWILLDOTHIS", a thread I started a while back, with some suggestions for fibromyalgia symptom management,
mostly natural and holistic.

Best wishes.
