acetaminophen / hydrocodone for Cough: Horrible sore throat combined with nonstop coughing. It was painful to say the least. Took the Vicodin and stopped coughing. I had tried everything over the counter, teas, honey lemon, vaporizer, vapor rubs, hot showers, etc. This is the only thing that stopped the coughing.
Lortab 7.5/500 (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: Works extremely well for my pain. Chronic back pain and dislocated hip joint. Works better if taken as soon as pain begins. Highly addictive and well known street drug. Never tell anyone, teenagers, thst you have them. Take only ax needed as needed because of tolerance build up.
Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: Dating back to 1960, it seems like I've been plagued with pain every day of my life. Most of the time a small amount of aspirin will eliminate the issue. But there are days when almost nothing will end the pain. Since I began taking Norco 3-4 years ago - up to three, 10-325 mg tablets a day, life has been a genuine pleasure. I'm still experiencing daily pain. But it is very seldom severe. And when it is, that's only because I forgot I'm 74 years old and spent the day working in the yard like an 18 year-old.
I can't begin to name all the pain-killers I've used in my life. But Norco is, by far, the most effective.

Lortab 5/500 (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Back Pain: I got injured at work from my upper back part, affortunally it was a mucle spam, the pain make me felt on the floor but after dr. Seen me he prescribed me hydrocodone/acetaminophen and it really works, the pain was there but not strong like the first day every time I miss a dosis pain came back but it disappear after every dose. They work very good.
Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Back Pain: I'm a former parole officer who suffered a back injury from a parolee assaulting and escaping from jail back in 1989. I had tried everything for relief of severe back flare-ups that occur and the resulting pain I have in my back, legs and neck frequently. Norco was prescribed by my doctor about 3 years ago and I cannot believe the results from this medication. I am very happy that this medication has allowed me to carry on a normal life again.
Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: I was prescribed Vicodin as a rescue med for migraine. I've only used it 3 times but have had to cease using it because it makes me itchy all over my body. I don't get a rash, just very itch, it drives me nuts.
I was taking 2 x 10/325 tablets (after taking 4 mg Zofran). It doesn't completely take away my migraine. I can still function. I need a little nap, then I can get up and work, drive car etc. It did wonders for my neck and back pain I am currently getting physio on, but it hasn't been a wonder rescue drug for migraine. I've been given a different narcotic rescue med to try. Hopefully I won't need to use it. I am on Depakote as a preventative and use Cambia as an abortive. These both work well, especially if I take the Cambia early.
Review by Cryptical Envelopement (taken for 2 to 5 years):
Lorcet 10/650 (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Back Pain: Very effective, helps daily motivation in terms of getting going without that shocking, nagging pain. Its depressing but helps the body function where without the medication its demotivating and furthers the negative aspect of ones well-being and self worth toward a productive life and social feeling of being needed. The medication simply assists me to function where without I am no longer an asset to anything up to this point in my life, including my own self esteem.
Review by Anonymous (taken for 6 months to 1 year):
Lortab 10/500 (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: In my experience this medication is pretty good but the only problem I have is, it makes me itch. My pharmacist says its not an allergy because I don't have a rash. I have found, if I take it soon enough after pain starts, it does pretty good at controlling it.
Review by NORCO 10-325 (taken for 10 years or more):
Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Back Pain: Two major lower back surgeries, was in major pain ! A Doctor told me about NORCO and I tried NORCO with great success for 10 years. I realize that is a long time to take this! I now have pain management special Doctor and have tried other products to stop the pain. I have always came back to the NORCO 10-325 because it did the job for me. NORCO 10-325 gave me my life back. My pain is under control with this product.

acetaminophen / hydrocodone for Pain: Excruciating pain from swollen ear canal, whitehead on floor of ear canal in front of ear drum, and Otitis Externa. Began working in about 1 hr (Lortab 7.5/500) in 350 lb grown man. Took first time at approximately 12:35 PM, made me sleep from 1 to 5, didn't wear off until about 8:20 PM.
acetaminophen / hydrocodone for Back Pain: I have taken hydrocodone/APAP for a few years now and it does quite well for my physical pain. I have the flattest feet in the world. I had broke three bones in my right foot years back and just recently had surgery on both of them. I find that this medication helps with the pain from my feet and lower back. ALSO, which I think is a different but a nice side effect, is an elevation in my mood and reduced fatigue. It in fact is almost like coffee. Overall, great medication.

acetaminophen / hydrocodone for Back Pain: I have been taking this medicine for at least six yrs. Although Percocet works far better for me, this does help take the edge off enough for me to get about a bit. It is also wonderful for coughing. I take 10/325. I also take Soma 350mg, which is for muscle spasms, it works wonders. You might ask your Dr. It helps me tremendously.
Lortab 7.5/500 (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Back Pain: Fractured and wedged connecting vertebrae put on the 5's for many years. Now with another injury to the back moved to the 7s the first time taking the 5S made me drowsy for a couple of weeks but nothing since does its job.
Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Back Pain: Stepped up to Norco 10/325 over about a 3 year period and have found it to be very effective in treatment of my low back pain. However, after a while my body does build up a tolerance and my doc recently also added tramadol. So far, so good. Awaiting an epidural block to get my legs back from pain.
I haven't had any negative side effects to note.
