Reviews for Norco

Sort by:

For Pain "This drug is better than nothing. I wonder why it is used for severe pain. It doesn't help stabbing nerve pain. It helps back pain (herniated disks, arthritis, degenerative disk disease) a little. Not much help for neck pain either. I need Lyrica for neuropathy and the two give some relief for fibromyalgia and arthritis (along with glucosamine). My pain level remains disabling."

For Back Pain "For severe pain and problems in the lower back this should be the very least that is recommended for pain, at least temporarily until something else can be figured out (injection blocks, PT, etc). This has helped me more than almost anything else I've tried, and after taking these my sharp shooting pain turns into just a "heart-beat" type throb that I can feel in my lower back."

For Back Pain "I have Fibro, Spinal Stenosis (severe) and Neuropathy, and occasional migraine headaches. I've been taking the Norco 7.5/325 for five years and it works, along with my 90mg of Cymbalta and 10mg Valium x2 a day. I haven't had to ask for an increase in my meds ever. The pain is always there but manageable. I can grocery shop and do light housework daily. I can drive myself with no danger. I have taken myself off the Norco quite a few times. I might go five to seven days without it just to see if I'm addicted. I hurt a lot but even though I have a full bottle in the bathroom I'm able to resist taking them and not get sick."

For Back Pain "Norco has been good to relieve my pain from my L2, L3, L4 discs herniated and resulting pain level 8 in lower back and down the sciatica nerve in my legs. much better than morphine which makes me feel like I'm asleep and trying to move thru cement. It really has done a good job of lowering the pain level and consequently I can function relatively well and get some things done each day, giving me a better quality of life instead of just focusing on the pain. I know I've become addicted but I'd rather be addicted to something that helps me than constantly suffer from pain and have misery day after day."

For Pain "I have severe Fibromyalgia with migraine/tension headaches and Chronic Fatigue. I also have osteoarthritis in my hips and lower back. I've already had one SI joint fusion. I am on disability because of the Fibromyalgia. I have used Norco 10/325 for several years. It controls the pain well and at this point I am able to manage on only 1-2 tablets a day. I have to manage my pain to be able to function, otherwise depression sets in with the pain and I just want to stay in bed. I may be somewhat dependent on Norco now but it's worth it to have a life."

For Back Pain "I found Norco to be highly effective in keeping my back, shoulder, and neck pain under control and still allowing me to function as a professional (at least for the most part). I have taken Norco on and off over the last three years due to a series of accidents. I have taken Norco as my only source of pain medication, and, I found it was pretty easy for me to leave behind once the the injury was healed. I had two surgeries this summer (June and July). I began taking Norco in April, and had shoulder surgery in June and continued on the Norco. In July I had spinal surgery and was put on Dilaudid and MS Contin for four weeks. At the end of the four weeks my withdrawal symptoms were exceedingly painful, both physically and mentally."

For Back Pain "I take hydrocodone 10mg/325MG. Of acetaminophen. I have bulging disks in my lower back on my spine and they hit certain nerves. I have had a great experience with this medicine. I don't have any side effects except for some itching. It allows me to function and continue to work a fast paced job where I'm on my feet. You just have to careful to not take more than prescribed because most people don't realize how addicting it can be. Read the papers that you get from the pharmacy and ask questions. If used correctly this drug is very beneficial."

For Pain "I was prescribed Norco 7.5 due to server pain from a bad Kidney infection. I'm not big on pain meds due to making me feel different. I have found this medicine has controlled the pain but makes me restless not able to sleep."

For Back Pain "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."

For Back Pain "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."

For Back Pain "i'm taking norco 10/325 for over ten years on and off i'm over sixty five, i've recently came to the reality that this wonder drug has lowered my back pain, diabetes sugar, depression, and neuropathy pain. i've been told i have reverse side effects form this medication then the average patients the doctor attends to. everyone else says oh your hooked on pain meds, so what. if they help all of these problems i have and have no bad side effects i can't live with. the best to this drug."

For Back Pain "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."

For Pain "I started Norco 7.5 3 months ago for neck, arm, back and leg pain. I thought this was a low dose since I have tried much stronger medicines in the past i.e. Oxycontin, Roxicet and fentanyl..bad side effects. Norco so far has sufficiently controlled my pain. Dose may have to be increased in future but now ok."

For Pain "My physician prescribed Norco 35-325 after I complained of severe abdominal pain and pain in my kidneys. I started taking one tablet every 4-6 hours (sometimes less than 4 hours apart) and it didn't seem to help with the pain, it would help me sleep sometimes. I started taking two tablets, and it seems to make a noticeable difference. It doesn't take as long to start working as if I were to just take one. It lasts a while longer too. I've tried others and it works just as well but only when I take two."

For Pain "I have been on 10 MG Norco for four years due to back and arm pain. It helps a lot especially in the morning when I get up. I am developing arthritis and my Neurologist thinks I might have fibromyalgia. I also have two heel spurs and tarsal tunnel syndrome in my left foot. And I also take Neurontin for my feet. I can't hardly take a Norco after 5 pm or so as they keep me up. I take Klonopin at bedtime or excess stress during the day. Nobody that doesn't know me well even knows any of this because I can walk pretty normally."

For Pain "I would give this (Norco) an 11 if I could. I had a labiaplasty and all they prescribed me was 800mg ibuprofen and Tylenol 3. Neither one worked very well. I happened to have some Norco left over from a work related injury (back/neck/shoulders) and the nurse I spoke to said it wouldn't work very well for this sort of pain. Well, sorry to say, she was wrong. I feel pain free and relaxed for the first time since my surgery. I think I will actually get some sleep tonight. The pain was a level 10 (imagine getting your genitals caught in a bear trap... that's what it felt like--constantly)... right now it's at probably a 1 with only minor discomfort. Check with your doctor before using it and never mix with other medicines!"

For Back Pain "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."

For Back Pain "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. "

For Pain "Over the past 7 yrs. I've been on every painkiller known to man. Currently what works for me is Fentanyl 25mg patches and Norco 10/325mg for breakthrough pain. Disabled due to severe back(lower) pain, both hips broke, right knee with osteoarthritis and my right Achilles tendon was torn up by a dog. My combo allows me to function somewhat for up to about 4 hrs before pain level starts rising and I have to stop cause sometimes the pain gets so bad that the meds don't work. Fentanyl is not for everyone but I would suggest to anyone dealing with severe chronic pain to try it.A patch last 3 days and I have no side effects from it. No constipation either. I thank my lucky stars that my doc found this combo. I still have bad days but very few."
