please help me

i posted this on the other site, but no-one seems to be in there right now.  hopefully someone in here can help me.  i have been tapering off norco, slowly for family reasons, and ran out before the taper was complete.  i have 4 roxicet given to me, and want to know how small to break them up to equal 1/4 norco.  i need to do this to get through the weekend as i need to drive in the city and cznnot have any more nights of zero sleep. i know driving in the city is nothing to a lot of you, but i am a country girl, and need my wits about me.  on the norco i did it with no problem, and could off of it too, if i was sleeping at night, but the sleep deprivation ismaking me too woozy.  thanks a lot,

Lucy

I used to take the little blue roxicodone. They were 30mg. So, be careful.I think they start at 15mg and go to 60mg. Google it and see which ones you have. Once I started taking those, i never wanted loratabs. They are much stronger. Not a good thing to get started with those.

lucy,
Are you only taking 1/4 a norco a day right now??? If you have the other to stretch it out till Monday then do that. Monday is just a few days away. Your not putting it off a month just a few days. Do what you have to do. I know quitting these pills are hard. You do it in your time and you will be more successful in it. Here for ya

According to Globalrph.com, 7.5mg of hydrocodone is equivalent to 5.0 mg of oxycodone

How much are you taking now?? If you are down to 1/4 of a norco...you might as well go ct now...either way you are going to have a couple of days of wd's when you stop...they will  be minimal. GOOD LUCK>>>>

I don't know what roxicet is but if you've made it to CT aren't you afraid of back tracking? Can you get any xanax or valium to help you sleep or get you through a little longer. Lucy, be strong. You're going to face stuggles the rest of your life you can't give in. I know you are at a very weak stage and I understand, I'm not trying to be hard on you. I want to wish you love and strength. I'm here for you whatever you have to do.
