Reviews for Acetaminophen/hydrocodone to treat Back Pain
Review by Ela May:
Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): Car accident at 21 I am now 35. My back had became severe, finally had to find help. The doc gave me Norco. It along with steroid injections has now given me a normal life.
Lorcet 10/650 (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): This medication gave me COMPLETE AND TOTAL relief for the herniated discs in my lower back before the pain turned from Acute to Chronic. I was on Vicodin ES before that and when I was having pain at night my orthopedist put me on this and it worked great!
Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): A few years ago, I was setting on the floor getting my bills ready for taxes, leaned forward to grab a bill and got "stuck". Could not move. The doctor prescribed Vicodin. It caused a blinding headache. Still had the Back pain and the headache was almost worse than a migraine.
acetaminophen/hydrocodone: After 4 lumbar surgeries, pain in my legs and lower back were extremely intense with a maximum sitting time of 10 minutes before pain reach a 9. I worked with a pain management clinic and was prescribed hydrocodone. This pain reliever helped for about 6 months and then the pain seemed to have increased to an unmanageable level. I worked with the pain management center and was prescribed Nucynta ER 200mg. The combination of Nucynta and Hydrocodone provide a level of pain relief that makes life tolerable. I can work a 45 hr week provided I have the pain relievers. Without the pain relievers I would likely be not able to work.

Review by determinedladee (taken for 5 to 10 years):
Lortab 7.5/500 (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): I have had 3 surgeries regarding my spine. 2 neck operations, 1 low back discetomy. I have been diagnosed with degenerative disc disease. I have elected several times to go without the medication to see how my body responds on other over the counter medications. Nothing worked. I also tried alternative medication prescribed from my pain management doctor to see if that would work, it did not. I have been taking Lortab 7.5 for 6yrs now responsibly and without it I have very poorly controlled pain.

Review by Robert flores (taken for less than 1 month):
Lortab 5/500 (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): 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): 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.

Review by Cryptical Envelopement (taken for 2 to 5 years):
Lorcet 10/650 (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): 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 NORCO 10-325 (taken for 10 years or more):
Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): 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: 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: 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): 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): 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.

Review by 2 herniated disk guy (taken for 1 to 6 months):
Lortab (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): When I got ran over by the 18 wheeler, tried everything. Chiropractor, Physical therapy, tramadol, etc. nothing stopped the pain. Lortab 7.5 is only thing that works. Take 1/2 in morning, 1/2 at lunch, and 1/2 in evening. Just watch for dizziness, nausea, and I guess that's a side effect. I feel loopy and detached a little, but it's better than hurting all the time. Most definitely don't mix with booze, made me sick as a dog. Also watch your tolerance. One day tried to take a whole one and had to lay down. Just be mindful it hits everyone different. Hope this helps.
