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 Back Pain: I'm taking both medications for pain after my back surgery. It works but pain comes back about an hour before I'm scheduled to take another dose.

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.

For Back Pain: 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.

For Back Pain: 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.

For Pain: I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia about seven years ago. I have taken Norco as prescribed by my physician along with other medications. Norco has improved my quality of life 100% as it allows me to manage down my pain level so that I am capable of conducting everyday living without that heavy narcotic side effects i.e., feeling "high", sleepiness, nausea, abdominal discomfort. I think I have developed a mild physical or mental dependence due to the length of time that I've been on the medicine. First and foremost I take the medicine as directed and I do not wait until my pain level is at a 10 before I act otherwise it's effects are limited. Norco has been very helpful in giving me my like back!

For Pain: I used to be on Vicodin 10/500 for my severe pain due to rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, fibromyalgia and spinal issues. My pain is chronic and severe. I've been on Norco for 4 months now and did not feel any difference from the Vicodin. Last month my pharmacy gave me a different brand. It was amazing! First time in a few years that my pain was less. I even found myself missing a dose because I was feeling ok. Believe me all genetics DONT work the same way.

For Pain: This medicine has allowed me to function. I haven been taking it for 3 years because I have adverse reactions to ASA and all NSAIDS. Chronic pain from rheumatoid/osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, cervical and lumbar injuries from auto accident. I see a pain management physician for steroid injections when I need to and use Norco. I may still have days where some tasks are a no go; some time limitations doing chores also. I adhere to the dosing schedules although the bedtime dose I cut in half for better sleep. This medication in combination with Cymbalta and an occasional Flexeril allows me to do much more during the course of a day. I am very happy about the low dose acetaminophen. I get regular blood studies.

For Back Pain: 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.

For Pain: Been taking norco for 19 months as I have neuropathic foot leg hip low back pain. Trying not to have back fusion. Norco 5mg/325mg does great for pain control. Without this would be flat on my back in bed. Thank goodness for norco.
