Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Rheumatoid Arthritis: I used to play golf three days a week but with much pain afterwards. I've been put on Vicodin on a regular basis. I take as needed not more than prescribed and it has worked wonders.

Norco, Lortab, Lorcet. If you are going to take any of these take the Norco. And I have learned that taking Omega 3 fish oil 3 times a day will help you a lot with your digestive system and your heart. Especially those that suffer with either IBS or just plain constipation which is one of the side effects of taking hydrocodone. Do be careful and use your power and will to only take what you need or is prescribed.
Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Back Pain: Works well to treat moderate pain and increase flexibility. If new to usage you can expect a "head buzz" but with continued usage the euphoria dissipates, but the pharmaceutical effects remain. Does tend to cause constipation, but by comparison to some other pain killers out there, it is far more manageable. Prescribed to me with muscle relaxers, but the muscle relaxers make me too sleepy to function.

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Back Pain: I have taken hydrocodone for several years due to severe back pain. I have osteoporosis which has resulted in several compression fractures. My back is a mess. I have had multiple surgeries for stenosis and disk problems. I have tried all the pain killers, Oxycontin, MS morphine, Lortab, etc. Norco works the best and I have only minimal side effects. I have taken the Norco 10's, one every 4-6 hours for the past 5 years. I am able to work and function almost normally with the pain killers.

Xodol (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Back Pain: I have kidney and liver problems. So far this is the best pain medicine that I have found with the least amount of Tylenol or Ibuprofen. Xodol has half the Tylenol than Lortab so it is easier on my liver. As far as how well it works, for me, it works very well most of the time as long as I take it before the pain gets too bad. I would recommend it over any of the other pain medicines I have taken.

Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: I took it for a cracked rib. But if any of you who have been in this boat know, there is nothing you can do for a cracked rib. But taking Vicodin made the rest of my pain go away from other injuries and did make the cracked rib mush easier to deal with.
Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: I have taken 4 of these pills. The first one gave me no pain relief. I took a second 3 hours later. I got pain relief, also dizziness, exhaustion, inability to sleep, crying spells. I tried two pills at bedtime hoping to get good pain relief and be able to sleep. Was up all night, restless, tossing and turning. Woke up this morning and now 10 hours after taking the medicines am still nauseated and dizzy.
acetaminophen / hydrocodone for Pain: Personally I used this for 6 years then changed to Percocet then to M.S. Contin where I am at now but this is over 15 years. If not abused this will remain effective. Everyone is different so I can't say how quick change would be needed.
Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Back Pain: I was in a motor vehicle accident in 07 and had a crushed vertebrae and herniated disc. I was prescribed Norco and it works very well. Its the only thing I can use that works.

Lorcet 10/650 (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: This pill has allowed me to get some much needed sleep. I get flare-ups for bursitis in my shoulder about twice a year and when it happens if I roll over onto that shoulder I want to scream and I'm awake the rest of the night. Even putting on a shirt is terrible. The only other pain I've been through that was worse were kidney stones. Please be smart and take this medicine like you are supposed to.
Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Back Pain: I have been dealing with chronic low back pain for 2 years. I have degenerative disks in L4 and L5 and arthritis in my spine. Norco works really well for my pain.

Lortab (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Back Pain: This medicine is good if you can get pass the side effects. I was sick, dizzy, felt like throwing up, felt like I was on a ship moving fast, or like car sickness. I went to see a dentist and he told me how best to take the medicine. Take Dramamine 30 minutes before, make sure to lay down, don't get in the car and do not watch TV. Everything he told me was right.
Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: I have been on Norco 10/325 for 10 yrs. I have lupus and the joint and back pain and every other pain I have differently from day to day can be unbearable. I wouldn't be able to get out of bed without it. Highly recommended for people in severe daily pain, rather than laying around hurting and wasting your life.

Lortab (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: I've been suffering from endometriosis for over 5 years now. I have tried so many different medicines to help relieve the pain I have on a daily basis. My gyno prescribed Lortab ES for me 6 months ago and it has been a miracle for me. I take only as directed by my doctor and luckily haven't experienced any negative side-effects. Thanks to Lortab I can finally have some of my life back.
Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: I've been on Norco 10/500 2 times a day on and off for years. I have deteriorating defibrosis and the pain is unbearable especially in the mornings if I have not taken the medication to the point I can't get out of bed for about 20 mins and with help. I have tried tramadol, Valium, Flexeril, you name it. Norco is the only medication that works wonders.
