Reviews for Acetaminophen/hydrocodone to treat Back Pain
Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): "I'm 59, have sciatica, and it's progressed to where I know I don't have to live in constant pain. I've been a narcotic user most of my life so the 5mg didn't do much and certainly after a short period didn't do anything if taken as directed. I've upped it to 7.5's and relief was significant and am now taking 10mg and the relief is amazing. I was concerned because I've been a narcotic user for so much of my life but it works and I didn't want to push it by going the oxy route. I've been saying the same thing to people who don't understand. I call it a managed habit. There were several times I couldn't even sit in this chair and log on to the computer."

"This is a very good pain reliever, I don't find it addictive at all. I will say that is seems to suppress normal dreams because immediately after I quit taking it I have an explosion of unusual dreams. But that settles down within a few nights."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): "Went to ER with severe lower back pain that went down my leg. Diagnosed as sciatica and given norco 10. It totally knocked me out but did take my pain from an 8 to a 0! Broke it in half so I could stay awake after that."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): "I had suffered Degenerative Disc Disease with two bulging discs at L4 and L5 with Annular Tear and Spinal Stenosis since May 2006. No injury or accident. Right side leg went completely numb on me and sent me to the ER; Within a week I had an awesome Dr helping me with this med, Flexeril and Naprosyn. As well as Physical Therapy and Chiropractic Care. I became pain free in November 2006. Then I got pregnant and in December 2010 the pain was so severe that I had to go on Norco & do Physical Therapy again for two months. Needless I went into Pain Mgmnt with an Awesome Dr and of course tried and failed Morphine, Fentanyl, Oxycontin with OxyIR, Neurontin, and this was always reverted back to Norco. Had Spinal Fusion and Norco was what worked."

"I have chronic back pain due to herniated disks, sciatica and left knee because of torn meniscus, Bakers cyst as well as osteoarthritis. I had reached the point that I could barely walk except for very short distances around the house. I take Norco 5/325. I have had injections to both back and knee with some short term relief. With Norco I was able to participate in Aquatherapy and take my small dog for slow walks of 20-30 minutes & do some core strengthening exercises. Norco does not completely erase the pain but reduces it to a tolerable level that allows me to be more active. CDK & gastritis rule out NSAIDs. Norco does not make me nauseousis. With the change in the status of Norco I now have to see a pain specialist monthly for a new Rx."

"I've got three herniated lumbar discs, severe pain in my lower back and sciatica pain down my legs. After my doctor put me on Norco 7.5 I finally have enough pain relief and I can focus more on my job and get some things done. It helps restore some quality of life."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): "I did 6 years active duty with the army as an infantry soldier. I've been in the Iraq war in 2004, and the war in Afghanistan in 2006. During combat I've been in 6 IED explosions. A gun shot through my left shin, nerve damage to my whole right hand. Compressed 3 disc, and shattered 1 in my lower back. I have Traumatic brain injury which causes horrible migraines. I've been on everything since 2007...Oxycontin 80mg, 30mg Roxy's, 125mg fentanyl patches, morphine 60mgs, etc. Currently I'm on 10/325 Norco 6 times a day. I've grown dependent and tolerant to opiates. But Norco is by far the best medicine to make my chronic pain tolerable. And the side effects are close to none. I highly recommend this for chronic pain."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): "Best if using to think that this medication was bumped to schedule II on October, 6th 2014! It helps with pain. But must see the doc every month, which is a painful journey among other daily activities that can burden those who have permanent back damage, or Chronic (close to permanent back pain) ~back pain. Best to get 10mg dose, then able to break and take less or more depending on the day, pain, movement anticipated, etc. "

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): "I have back, shoulder, neck, & knee problems. I also have been diagnosed with severe migraine disorder. It is heredity and so painful that you basically can't do anything but lay in a dark room and pray it goes away. I have four boys 15, 10, 9, & 1 yrs old. I feel bad when I get in any kind of pain, because it stops everyday living. I have been on Lortab, Percocet, Vicodin, tramadol, Mobic, Cymbalta, Maxalt, Imitrex, & many more medications. I am now on Norco 325/10 & Soma. This works so much better than any of the other medications, even the stronger ones. I also take Fioricet for my migraines, after reading these reviews I see people take Norco for migraines which I didn't know. Maybe I'll talk to my doc about not taking Fioricet anymore."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): "I was in a recent accident. I was hit from behind. I had to go to thee emergency room. I have a Concussion, Lubosacrial Strain, Cervical Strain etc. I have not taken to much of the medication yet. I rate this medication a 8 because, it helps you sleep and it helps with the back pain very good. Not too many side effects. I have to wear a cervical collar for awhile and I was diagnosed as having Acute head Injury. I hope all will be ok. "

"I've been on Hydrocodone 10/325 for almost a year now and it works great! I suffer from chronic sciatica pain caused by L4-L5 disc. It dosen't get rid of the pain completely but it makes it more tolerable."

"Significan Arthritis at L4,5, and S1 with no surgical options. Muscle spasms that will put me on my knees and I'm over six feet tall; long way to fall. I've been on 10/325 for about five years; that's a long time. I take ONE a day usually late afternoon. Typically I get a little drowsy but can work through any residual pain until bed time. Oh, I've also got two artificial knees thanks to my service in the US Navy. And this stuff works on the pain from them too. Yes, artificial knees can still hurt you. I'd prefer to have the back pain dealt with at it's source rather than it's symptoms, but to date, no one has any idea about how to do that. Until then, I keep a bottle of pain killers near by."

Lortab (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): "Okay well at FIRST this medication was pretty cool, it took away ALL my pain and not only that but gave me extra energy as well. Before I had my son I would not let doctors prescribe me narcotic pain killers for anything, as I had been addicted to Vicodin in the past. SO, my son was born and I then developed bursitis from years of running in the army, working out, and a combo of a hip surgery and other factors. At first I went to chiropractor 3x a week, massage therapy, physical therapy and finally told the doctor I HAD to have some pain medication, it was so bad it changed my life. Started taking these 2 years ago & now they don't help me but if i DON'T take them I get sick! :( wish I'd never started on them now."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): "Had a double Discectomy on L1 & L2 fourteen months ago that put me in a wheelchair for 3 months. This was due to nerve damage from the two Herniated Discs. After the wheelchair I used a walker for 9 months. Now fourteen months later I am starting to walk with the aid of cane and continuous Physical Therapy. I do still use the walker at the end of the day but am trying to transition to the cane full time. I hope to be able to walk again someday without the help of any aids. During all this time I was and still am in lots of pain but nothing like it was before surgery. The Norco 10/325 made/makes my pain bearable."

"Had 2 herniated disks L4-L5 and L5-S1 one of them at 7mm and one at 9.5 mm herniation. Without an operation I'd be wearing a bag to pee in for the rest of my life at a young age. Dr. Cut the disk shaved the bone on my spine. Been on meds 10/325 Norco for like 4yrs relieves morning wake up pain and all day on my feet night pain. They do help . Before the operation nothing helped."
