Reviews for Norco to treat Pain

Sort by:

"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."

"I have been suffering from a surgery on my back that went wrong. I have had 2 other surgeries in the last year to correct it and have had little recovery. I have been taking Norco 10/325 since then 6 times a day and because of it I have been able to still do stuff with my kids and family. I have had no adverse side effects. All my blood work comes back great. This is definitely a medication that works wonders."

"I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, and degenerative disc disease and this pill has worked amazingly for the pain. Just 5mg helped great and I had my life back till my doctor took me off of it. I had no side effects and it worked wonders, also Lortab and Lorcet has worked great. "

"I have herniated discs, 2 knee surgeries, both my ankles have been broken several times. The worst is the arthritis that came with the herniated disks... so Six 10/325 Norco's a day REALLY TRULY work for managing my pain. Also I saw a post earlier about taking a muscle relaxer with it, that helps very well with mobility."

"Norco relieved my pain better than anything I had been prescribed before. I have severe nerve pain, knee, neck and lower back problems."

"I have been diagnosed with CPS (Chronic Pain Syndrome). I have experienced pain since I was 12 years old, and every doctor I went to explaining about my pain ignored me. They told me that I was too young to experience pain or it went with my depression symptoms, and antidepressant medications would solve that issue. Well, it didn't. Finally a doctor listened. She performed blood tests, and came back positive for CPS. She assigned me to Norco/Hydrocodone. I am still in pain, naturally, but it has lessened. I can walk in the mornings more easily, my joints don't feel as stiff, and I can accomplish more of my errands than I used too. To me, it's my miracle pill."

"Norco works great for me and has for several years. I crushed my ankle over 10 years ago and the pain can be overwhelming. "

"I'm extremely sensitive to medicine. In fact, I haven't successfully taken any medicines in 14 years. A little over a year ago, I was t-boned and I have had intense back/nerve pain ever since. I can't take anything regularly because I'll develop an allergy of sorts, but when my pain is sky high, I take a quarter of 10/325 Norco and it makes all of the pain disappear (and of course I'm so sensitive that it keeps the pain away for 3 days)."

"Have classic migraine headaches which last sometimes 4-5 days long. Have been on Norco 10/325 for about 5 years now, and this medicine really works well. I don't want to be on anything stronger (percocet, dilaudid, etc.), have tried Norco with Flexeril and that seems to be effective. I can't see myself off these, the pain is just too intense, and the over the counter medicines don't work to treat severe migraine pain.."

"Taking for Sciatica and lower back pain, 60 mg/day, 10/325 - not much relief, can go higher but really messes my stomach up. May ask to go back to original Percocet at 30 mg which worked better. Stomach pain from Norco is in lower stomach and sides where original pain was, so I'm also not sure if I'm treating the cure sometimes. Kills appetite, mainly nausea, 60 mg lets me get through physical therapy okay, but am losing weight fast (15 pounds/1 month) from nausea - just not right one for me - not fond of Percocet either, but don't know of anything "between" that might work. "

"I have been taking Norco for about a year now and it works for me with very little if any side effects. I had surgery on C2-C3, C3-C4, C4-C5, C5-C6. The surgeon wants to cut again on C7. Had a plate with screws put in neck in 2006. I have Degenerative Disc disease with severe bilateral neuroforaminal stenosis. I take 10/325 of Norco three times daily and it helps the pain and is keeping me from surgery on C-7. Only 30% of all neck surgeries are successful and will stay on Norco to prevent surgery as long as it works and for now it is working, with no side effects."

"I have had knee surgeries on both kness. I snapped 3 out of the 4 ligaments, including my ACL and torn meniscus on both knees. The surgeries have helped but I still have severe pain in both knees. I was started on Vicodin ES, was taking up to 3 pills a day for about 9 months. The Vicodin started wearing off after about 2 hours and the maximum amount you can take are 5 per day. Doctor switched me to Norco 10/325. So far I am able to control the pain by taking 1 pill upon waking and 2 after about 8 hours, when I'm not at work. I take 2 pills when working out on the elliptical or doing a lot of walking. Still have some pain after an active day but it is way more tolerable now. So far so good!"

"I have chronic migraine headaches so my doctor gives me Norco 10/325 to ease the pain. NOTHING works better than this medicine, not even Percocet, or oxycodone. I'm 30 years old 6'3", 250 lbs so I'm assuming that's why I got something a little stronger than Vicodin. I had been going to the neurologist for about 2 years before he started giving me these. I know its not a cure but thank goodness its around. Highly recommended."

"Stage IV arthritis in the left knee, and spinal stenosis. It allows me to ignore the pain and keep working. Of course I treat the knee and back gently. I worry though about the acetaminophen. It never helped by itself, it does not seem to do anything in conjunction with the hydrocodone, and it may be damaging my liver or other organs. For this reason I cannot give the drug a "9" or "10". There is apparently no hydrocodone available without an additive."

"Good medication for muscle and bone pain. I am 20yrs old and have been on hydrocodone for 4 years. I have a chronic spinal muscular inflammatory disease and nerve damage. It helps but not for pain caused by nerve damage. On a bad day I can take 3 x 10/325 in a single dose and still have pain. Be careful they are very addictive and I actually hurt worse if I run out. My advice for muscle pain is to combine it with robaxin (methocarbamol) very good at controlling spasm and its non-sedative, which is a plus! Ask your doctor."

"I take 2 Norco 10/325 every morning with 800mg Ibuprofen for lower back pain due to 2 herniated discs from an injury in 2005. They are only partially effective. I have built up a tolerance to pain medicines. Even during radio surgery, the sedation I was given did very little. My doctor just gave me Morphine to use at night to help me sleep, but I am allergic to sulfur and the drug is actually called Morphine Sulfate. I am afraid to take it because of the potential side effects(hives). I'm waiting for authorization for disc replacement surgery, so hopefully I won't need pain medicines in the future."

"I broke my back 7 months ago and I was put on 5/500 and it did not relieve the pain at all. So my doctor put me on 10/325 Norco and it has been working well ever since. This is wonderful medicine for pain with little side effects. I would be unable to work if it weren't for this medicine. It truly has made me able to be a functioning part of society. Without it I am unable to do simple tasks such as clean or do laundry without the pain being unbearable."

"I give it an 8. I've been taking it for the last 6 to 8 years and it works so far. I have informed my doctor that I need to up my dosage and he agreed. So I take a half after about an hour after I take my regular dose and it works pretty good (that is the 10/325 mg). Most times I only have to take that half once or twice daily and sometimes I don't have to take the other half."

"I have been taking Norco for a jaw dislocation injury for about 3 months. After a while, I had to increase the amount per day, so my doctor wanted to give me oxycontin for evening. I did not like the Oxycontin and felt that the Norco better took away the pain. The Oxycontin just made me feel like I was hallucinating. The Norco works best for pain relief. "
