he was on norco, two or three at a time, and the dr dropped him to 1 oxy 5/325 every 4 hrs.  he is now back in his right mind, mostly, but having some wd symptoms.  isn't that a really fast taper?  he had been on morphine, 100 mg 3 times daily as well, and i took him off of them cause he just wasn't there.  blank stare and didn't know anyone.  that was for a very short time that he was on those though.
