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.
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 NORCO 10-325 (taken for 10 years or more):
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.

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.

This little pill saved my life. I fell off a roof 14 years ago and been on Norco for 6 years and they have been great I can almost work normal, I'm an air conditioning man. I can perform almost all my tasks, great pill. Would recommend for anyone.

I've been on Norco 10/325 for over a year.. it helps me be normal, being that I have a slipped disc, pinched nerve and stenosis. It doesn't take the spasms away, but I haven't found anything that does. If anyone knows of one that works please let me know I've tried them all. I just hate that because people can't see an injury they think you are not in serious pain, I hurt everyday and would love nothing more than to just be normal.

I have a bulging disc at L4/L5 that's pinching nerves in my back. Surgeon told me he would rather me go on pain medicines than go through with spinal fusion surgery. I'd never even heard of Norco before, but it is seriously an amazing pain medicine. I also get epidural steroid injections which provide much needed pain relief. I take one Norco 10/325 when I wake up, then one before dinner. Just those two pills make a huge difference in me living a "normal" life again. Gave it a 9 because I wish it lasted longer so I didn't have to take 2 pills a day.)

Review by Anonymous (taken for less than 1 month):
I was in a car accident in April and have been dealing with moderate back pain since then. Today, I'm being medi-evacuated from my ship (in the navy) back to the States for an unrelated issue, and I asked about something for the pain while I'm on the plane. This is amazing. I feel nothing and I haven't been able to get rid of the pain until now.
