For Pain: "I've used this on & off for chronic pain and other health conditions. I find that, for me, it's the only thing that takes the edge off without bad side effects. However, I recently filled a prescription and was given a form by a new manufacturer - Actavis Pharma. They have bought out Watson and changed the formula. Shortly after taking one, I was extremely nauseated and had a horrible headache. It made my pain much worse; I was in bed most of the day. The pharmacy I go to only prescribes this brand now because it's cheaper. There are numerous complaints online from people having bad side effects like I did. The pill id is 2172. If you're given this brand and have problems, please report it to both the FDA and Actavis."

For Pain: "I had three spinal operations and both hips replaced during the decade of '00. I suffer from chronic pain related to systemic osteoarthritis and spinal stenosis and have successfully managed my pain with low doses of hydrocodone and acetaminophen (Qualitest). My most recent Rx was filled using product manufactured by Mallinckrodt. For effectiveness in pain relief, Mallinckrodt is substantially INFERIOR to Qualitest."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: "Norco is 100% the worst pain medicine out there. Did not reduce my pain the slightest and made me so nauseous. This stuff should not be legal."

For Pain: "I've been on Pain Medicine for my Arthritis, Back Shoulder & Neck Pain since 2006 most pain due to a car wreck it is now 2016. The only thing that works for me is Hydrocodone 10/325 Watson brand is the best. I take 3 a day. I've been on a lot of different kinds of pain medication for my chronic pain. ( Was in another car accident March 2016 which made me worse) I was put on fentanyl patch 25 mg, I've taken Percocet 7.5 & 10s. Those are all to strong for me. Watson is only thing that helps me to where I can deal with everyday living. If medication is taken like it your suppose to take it then it won't be a problem. Before last accident some days I didn't need them. God bless all those living in pain. All pain is different. Wish DEA would recognize that"

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Back Pain: "I have been on some strength of acetaminophe.n and hydrocodone for the past three years. I have seen 2 different pain specialist and took an MRI and unfortunately found out that I have desiccated (artritric) discs in my lower back and bulging disks as well with mild neural encroachment. I am a 36 year old man. The only way I can see that I got these very painful back injuries is from working food service for a number of years. Like 7 full years. This medication does work wonders for pain but has to really be taken with caution as it is a Schedule II narcotic. I recommend trying other pills first before settling on this one."

For Pain: "For my torn rotator cuff I Was prescribed hydro 10/325 (yellow 3601) and there must be something about these (time release or other) but they're not very effective as far as my experience. When I received a refill (what a hassle) I went to different pharmacy and got the UO3 white oval 10/325 and they were 100% better. Took less pills to ease the pain (8 on the pain scale) and after 1 more refill stopped taking. It's a shame that people who are legitimately in pain have to go thru so much hassle to get the prescriptions they need. (People who don't need get huge quantities and sell for huge profit)."

For Back Pain: "I have a disease called neurofibromatosis or NF for short, with this disease it allows non cancerous tumors to grow all throughout my body, and I have several in my back and spine. A side effect of this disease is back pain, I have back pain from when I wake up to when I go to bed, and I'm only 16, I've tried PT and it didn't work. Finally I found hydrocodone/acetaminophen and I take two 5/325 and it gets rid of my back pain. I only take it when my back really hurts, as I don't want to become dependent on the medicine."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: "These just don't help me at all and they claim that they are the same as Lortab 7.5 but they are wrong. Lortab help me much better than these do. If they are the same then why call them Norco and change the looks of them. Nobody is fooling the patients that have been in severe pain"

For Cough: "I awoke this morning with a cough that I know all too well. At times when the weather is damp I experience an asthmatic type cough that causes spasms. I cough, try clearing my throat, use my inhaler ( which, incidentally I rarely use as I rarely have asthmatic attacks), however my point is that the only medication that completely erases this itchy, non-stopping, irritating cough..and it is a godsend, is a lortab. My prescription is for back pain..again only used when I have unbearable pain. I only use maybe a third or a half tablet.. Curiously, I googled to see if there were others such as myself who have found relief from these horrible coughing spells using not even a dose..just the right amount to thankfully have peace..thank you all."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Back Pain: "I have herniated disc, osteoarthritis, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, bone spurs, and more...I have been taking Norco 10/325 for 3 months now and have surgery coming up in June...spinal fusion and laminectomy of lumbar L4 L5. Without this medication I would not be able to get out of bed most of my days and am very thankful to have somewhat of a quality of life. I only take the entire 10 occasionally and break them in half to manage my pain. I do occasionally get light headed and nauseated but I have found that I can avoid this by eating small meals throughout the day and drinking lots of water."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: "I tore my adductor muscles from slipping on some mats in a martial arts class 6 years ago. I've had two sports hernia operations which helped but I have some permanent nerve damage in my thighs. I get burning and shocks in my thighs. I have been taking 1-2 norco as needed for several years and they work great. I know they are highly addictive but no other pain killer allows me to work, have fun with family and friends, and continue to train in my martial arts. I sometimes go 3-5 days without any and rarely take more than 2 a day. If you have chronic pain or permanent nerve damage these can give you your life back."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: "I was taking Percocet for some 6 years and I felt it was time for a change. I was put in Norco 10-325, same level as the Percocet I was taking. The first dose gave me a pleasant high and seem to be effective on the pain.....but....about one hour later, u became horribly nauseated...and vomited up the medication! Future doses proved the same results. This went on for @ 10 days,even with an empty stomach. I tried Dramamine, water pills, Bonine, Metzlicine, but no matter what, it made me horribly nauseated!, in addition to that, I felt very lathorgic, brain dead, and my sense of taste and smell seem to elude me.although it did release the pain, the side effects superceded the benefits. I am now back on my Percocet 10-325."

Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: "The vicodin 10/300 is my last resort for migraines when Frova/Immitrex does not work. I take it with Zofran because I am always nauseated with my migraines and very rarely do I have to take another dose to get rid of the migraine. This medication has saved me from going to the ER numerous times."

For Pain: "I've been taking 7.5 hydrocodone for endometriosis and cysts. This medication helps the pain very well but causes constipation and a little nausea. I'm sketchy about taking it to often due to risks of addiction"

For Back Pain: "This is the only medication that I can take it helps my pain. I have to be very careful with it because it makes me quite nauseous so I only take half pills and not very much at all. The biggest problem is is that nobody will prescribe it. It really sucks that a few bad people out there who abuse drugs have made it so you can't get the pain medication that you need. I can't take Advil I can't take steroids I can't take any of the others Tramadol or Tylenol 3 it's ridiculous"

Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: "I had knee surgery in 2001. The surgeon screwed up a nerve and I have been in chronic pain (24/7) since. Vicodin works better than anything else I've tried, including morphine. Without it, I am in pain and can't sleep at night. I can now understand why people commit suicide because they can't take the pain anymore."

For Pain: "My foot was severely broken in a auto accident and my doctor prescribed 5/325 norco 1 to 2 every 4 hours. The pain is so bad all I can do is moan. The doctor is a young buck and apparently doesn't understand the pain I'm having."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: "I had surgery to repair a torn labrum in my left hip as well as severe damage to my cartilage. It was an incredibly painful surgery and was prescribed the 10/325 hydrocodone (norco) for my pain. One tablet every 4-6 hours the first 2 weeks post op helped incredibly with the pain. I was given another prescription for the same thing for my PT (lasting 4-6 months post op). I no longer took them regularly, only before/after PT which could be incredibly painful. 1-2 tablets did the job, providing incredible relief from pretty severe pain. Only negative side effect I experienced was itching, particularly when I would take 2 tablets (20 mg). However, 2 tablets provided wonderful pain relief and also relaxed me mentally. Thumbs up."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: "This medication did not help my pain post surgery. My doctor had to change me to Percocet after 2 weeks. I even tried taking 2 at a time, with no relief. It was like there was no effect at all; I did not get drowsy so it did not help me sleep, it did not give me the jitters, or a 'high' feeling. I cannot see how anyone would take these for recreational use or get addicted. They do absolutely nothing."
