Or any other pain relief with hydromorphen? OxyContin does not help me at all. My liver enzymes are radically elevated again. A year or so ago they did the same, with a routine blood test both times. The first culprit was found to be green tea with ginseng. But I’ve not had any more since then. If it’s the acetaminophen in my Norco (which it was not last time) would this be a safe and effective medicine to use? I take less Norco now than I did over ten years ago so I do not consider myself to be high risk for addiction.Don’t even comment on the expense. I’d go into debt if it meant less pain. I do not have flares, I have pain 24/7.
