Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Back Pain: "Doesn't help much at all"

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Back Pain: "I have herniated disc, osteoarthritis, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, bone spurs, and more...I have been taking Norco 10/325 for 3 months now and have surgery coming up in June...spinal fusion and laminectomy of lumbar L4 L5. Without this medication I would not be able to get out of bed most of my days and am very thankful to have somewhat of a quality of life. I only take the entire 10 occasionally and break them in half to manage my pain. I do occasionally get light headed and nauseated but I have found that I can avoid this by eating small meals throughout the day and drinking lots of water."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: "I tore my adductor muscles from slipping on some mats in a martial arts class 6 years ago. I've had two sports hernia operations which helped but I have some permanent nerve damage in my thighs. I get burning and shocks in my thighs. I have been taking 1-2 norco as needed for several years and they work great. I know they are highly addictive but no other pain killer allows me to work, have fun with family and friends, and continue to train in my martial arts. I sometimes go 3-5 days without any and rarely take more than 2 a day. If you have chronic pain or permanent nerve damage these can give you your life back."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: "I was taking Percocet for some 6 years and I felt it was time for a change. I was put in Norco 10-325, same level as the Percocet I was taking. The first dose gave me a pleasant high and seem to be effective on the pain.....but....about one hour later, u became horribly nauseated...and vomited up the medication! Future doses proved the same results. This went on for @ 10 days,even with an empty stomach. I tried Dramamine, water pills, Bonine, Metzlicine, but no matter what, it made me horribly nauseated!, in addition to that, I felt very lathorgic, brain dead, and my sense of taste and smell seem to elude me.although it did release the pain, the side effects superceded the benefits. I am now back on my Percocet 10-325."

Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: "The vicodin 10/300 is my last resort for migraines when Frova/Immitrex does not work. I take it with Zofran because I am always nauseated with my migraines and very rarely do I have to take another dose to get rid of the migraine. This medication has saved me from going to the ER numerous times."

For Pain: "I've been taking 7.5 hydrocodone for endometriosis and cysts. This medication helps the pain very well but causes constipation and a little nausea. I'm sketchy about taking it to often due to risks of addiction"

For Back Pain: "This is the only medication that I can take it helps my pain. I have to be very careful with it because it makes me quite nauseous so I only take half pills and not very much at all. The biggest problem is is that nobody will prescribe it. It really sucks that a few bad people out there who abuse drugs have made it so you can't get the pain medication that you need. I can't take Advil I can't take steroids I can't take any of the others Tramadol or Tylenol 3 it's ridiculous"

Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: "I had knee surgery in 2001. The surgeon screwed up a nerve and I have been in chronic pain (24/7) since. Vicodin works better than anything else I've tried, including morphine. Without it, I am in pain and can't sleep at night. I can now understand why people commit suicide because they can't take the pain anymore."

For Pain: "My foot was severely broken in a auto accident and my doctor prescribed 5/325 norco 1 to 2 every 4 hours. The pain is so bad all I can do is moan. The doctor is a young buck and apparently doesn't understand the pain I'm having."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: "I had surgery to repair a torn labrum in my left hip as well as severe damage to my cartilage. It was an incredibly painful surgery and was prescribed the 10/325 hydrocodone (norco) for my pain. One tablet every 4-6 hours the first 2 weeks post op helped incredibly with the pain. I was given another prescription for the same thing for my PT (lasting 4-6 months post op). I no longer took them regularly, only before/after PT which could be incredibly painful. 1-2 tablets did the job, providing incredible relief from pretty severe pain. Only negative side effect I experienced was itching, particularly when I would take 2 tablets (20 mg). However, 2 tablets provided wonderful pain relief and also relaxed me mentally. Thumbs up."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: "This medication did not help my pain post surgery. My doctor had to change me to Percocet after 2 weeks. I even tried taking 2 at a time, with no relief. It was like there was no effect at all; I did not get drowsy so it did not help me sleep, it did not give me the jitters, or a 'high' feeling. I cannot see how anyone would take these for recreational use or get addicted. They do absolutely nothing."

Maxidone (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: "I used the medication and was doing better than I had been in years, then suddenly I was switched off of it due to the new law and haven't been able to be put back on it since. Don't understand why. I was told it was taken off the market."

For Pain: "Hello all, I had the worst experience of my life with medication with this prescription (hydrocodone-acetaphetomen 5-325). Now I took Vicodin years ago after I got in a bad car wreck, and it worked great. THIS IS NOT the same. I took this for getting a tooth pulled. I took one on the first night, no real relief. The next morning the gum is still bugging me, Pharmacist recommends I take 2. Within one hour I'm spaced out sick, dizzy, and short of breath. I literally felt like I was going to die. I call the Pharmacist back who assures me it will pass, I don't need to go to an ER. So I wait it out,took 10 HOURS to pass. Scariest part being the shortness of breath.DO NOT TAKE THIS, I can't warn you enough. It is not the Vicodin of the past"

For Back Pain: "I received 5/325 prescription to pass a kidney stone or pain thought to be from stones. It helped to lesson the ache so I could sleep but after just a few days the dose didn't do much of anything. Taking 10/325 helps but I can't function on it. Ten days later since ER trip and even taking one pill or less a day and I feel kind of like a zombie, have nausea and dark urine. I do not know for a fact it's from the medicine so I do think it's worth trying if you have mild to medium pain. I wouldn't make a habit of it since its known to be very addictive...if you can deal with the pain."

For Cough: "When I get a cold I get the worst cough imaginable. I actually reach a point where I feel I'm choking and gasping for air. I have had this problem my whole life (50 years) and I have only found one thing that works and that is Hydrocodone Acet It works within a couple minutes of taking it and lasts for at least 4 hours. It is a miracle drug to me. Because it is a narcotic, I only allow myself to take it at night time and has to be a horrible horrible cough. Lucky - no side effects."

For Pain: "I've been taking this medication for 6 years. Just last month the pharmacy gave me this other brand which had U03 on it. I've never seen this one before. The effectiveness of this was not good. It made me sick to my stomach also. I've never had a issue with 10/325 hydrocodone until this months supply. Will never get these again!"

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: "This drug is better than nothing. I wonder why it is used for severe pain. It doesn't help stabbing nerve pain. It helps back pain (herniated disks, arthritis, degenerative disk disease) a little. Not much help for neck pain either. I need Lyrica for neuropathy and the two give some relief for fibromyalgia and arthritis (along with glucosamine). My pain level remains disabling."
