If something else is necessary, since addicts have a higher tolerance for pain meds, the idea is to prescribe at twice the normal dosage, for half the usual amount of time. For example, 2 percocet
every six hours, rather than one. Also, it is important that YOU control the meds and not your daughter. Finally, any narcotic meds will start the cravings again after they are gone--an unfortunate result. Hope this is helpful.
