Patient : I was taking 5 mg of hydrocodone for back pain as have had 3 surgeries. Now the Dr. increased it to 7.5. Is this addictive and if so is it better to go back to the 5 mg or try to live with the pain and take nothing take nothing at all? Also a nerve was damaged with the last two surgeries.
