The withdrawals when coming off Norco's is the worst feeling ever. Severe anxiety, hard to sleep. After about 7 days the anxiety was less and less, but then I had to get my energy back. I had a hard time walking around the store, very weak. I was on them for my knee for 6 months. Be careful coming off.

Norco (highest strength) worked absolutely fantastically in controlling my pain from chemotherapy. Most of the time I only had to take 1/2 the dosage that the doctor had prescribed for me. I've never had a drug work so well without having horrendous side effects.

Recently I was put on Norco for a hand injury sustained several years earlier. It has helped my hand tremendously! I can actually use it. I love the fact that it has less acetaminophen and doesn't make my stomach hurt. It is a miracle.

This combination of Hydrocodone/acetaminophen is the best at relieving pain. I have tried Vicodin, Lortab, Lorcet, Vocoprofen, Vicodin HP and just about every different combination and Norco works the best by far. It relieves my pain in all parts of my body, and is also great for headaches, terrible back pain and abdominal cramping. This drug is much less addicting and has less episodes of nausea/vomiting.

I was recently put on Norco 10/325 after being on Vicodin since last summer. I had knee surgery which was not successful and now am living in constant pain. My doctor just increased my dosage from 4 to 6 a day. This should provide me with almost 100% relief from the pain. I wish I had an alternative to taking pain medicines. The medicine was scary at first (from the 5 mg Vicodin) but I am now used to them and don't get that fuzzy feeling that made me so scared. Now I know the drugs start to work because the pain goes away! Norco does it's job well and I am grateful to have them.

If you have mild back pain then this drug works well. I am 16 and after 8 months on Norco 10/325 I am now moving to schedule 2 drugs which are oxycodone but for the 8 months this drug worked very well.

I have had 4 back surgery's in the last 5 years. I now have two 21 inch Titanium rods in my back. I am still in constant pain. I take Norco for my back pain 2 to 4 times a day. It has helped a great deal. I have been taking this for 4 years and it works better than all the rest I have tried.

I have RSD a nerve disorder caused by a broken ankle. This is the only medication that gives me relief from the extreme pain and burning sensation you get with RSD. I'm so happy with the results along with my nerve blocks.

The norco works great for breakthrough pain. Does not last too long. You can double the effects of this drug if you take Tagamet 30 min before and you have an empty stomach. Also taking soma with this will increase the strength and will last longer. I guarantee if you try this you will thank me.

I have been on alot of pain medicines since I was twelve years old, due to endometriosis. After thirteen surgeries, and abundant doctor visits with their many accompanying prescriptions, my doctor finally tried Norco 10/325 two twice daily for the pain, and it worked.

I have spinal stinosis and have tried the gontlet of pain relievers. I have found Norco to be one of the best that I have tried. I take one number 10/750 every 6-8 hours and I find it keep's me feeling the best I can with the condition I have.

I have had a severe back injury and have been off work since Nov '06 and I first was on Vicodin and that didn't work anymore so they had put me on the Norco to cover the pain. It works wonders and I take 1-2 around every 4 hrs. BUT it has became very habit forming and I don't see an easy end to trying to cut back or get off these pills. They work great for pain but be careful!
