Doctor had me on 50 mg Norco (5 pills) daily for back pain. It stopped working and I hate the side-effects, so I quit after 8 months four days ago. I'm not an abuser or a recreational user. No alcohol problems. Muscles are cramping and aching and I can't sleep. Will it hurt to drink a little alcohol? Again, I'm not a junkie or a drunk. I don't even feel euphoria from any drug, so I don't even understand the appeal.
