I was just wondering if norco is better for pain than lortabs because of it having less tylenol in it??
Is norco better for pain than lortabs?
Added 15 Oct 2011:
I have been taking lortab 7.5/500 for close to 8-9 years total and it is to the point where it stops working within about an hour after taking it. I want to know if norco would work alittle better seeming it has less tylenol in it.

Hi da1zy_00 -
Norco and Lortab are both Hydrocodone these are just the brand names. You are correct that Norco only has 325 mg of Acetominophen compared to Norco which has 500, 750 and 1000 mg. Both have Hydrocodone in strengths of 5, 7.5 or 10 mgs. I personally prefer the Norco because since it has less Acetominophen it is not as hard on your liver. As far as pain relief goes, I have never been able to tell the difference in the amount of Acetominophen that each contains. I don't know if this answers your question but hope it helps! Good luck.

If you are really concerned about the tylenol, ask for oxycodone. It comes in stengths of 5, 10 , 15, 30mg. with no tylenol ot at all. I take 15mg of oxy, but have actually found that at night & first thing in the morning I am actually adding about 250 to 500 mg of tylenol to take with it. Seems to give it a boost. So maybe the tylenol is their for a reason. I like the option of being able to control how much tylenol I use so is perfect for me,. I was on hydrocodone 10/325 & just wasn't enough pain control is when they moved to oxycodone. Just my thoughts.
