Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: "I started having mild ankle pain about two years ago that increased to severe pain now. Doctor's still can't figure out what's wrong with me or what is causing the pain. Is it my back or my actual ankle? I have been put on many pain medications which haven't worked till now. I am currently taking Norco 7.5 along with Gabapentin 300 mg 3 times a day and I am able to function. At first, I was scared because I didn't want to become addicted but, when you can't function at all due to the severe pain, you put all those fears aside and you go for it. At first you do feel a little high with the med but, your body become adjusted to it and you begin to feel normal and with less, LESS pain. Take your meds as directed & follow up with your MD."

For Pain: "Terrible choice! Was prescribed this after wisdom teeth removal surgery and had the most unpleasant side effect experience after taking only 1 pill. It did manage to stop the pain to be fair but it gave me 4 hours' nausea, dizziness, and vomiting. Had I known I would experience such severe side effect I would rather just deal with the pain."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Back Pain: "They relieve my lower back pain and allow me to walk and sleep, couldn't do either without them! I use 3 daily 7.25-325 mg. My doctor transferred to a hospital and my new Chinese doctor told me he is deathly afraid of arrest by the DEA for writing narcotic Rx's scripts, he no longer writes any, but sends all, including me to a "Pain Clinic" that costs me $40.00 a visit for a specialist co-pay to pick up a script, a $480 year waste! Other doctors quit writing scripts because of increased pressure from the law and DEA agents also. How unfair is that to seniors? And who cares?"

For Back Pain: "I have taken 10/325 Norco for severe neck and spine injuries for over seven years. FIRST, it was the Yellow oblong pill. Next, it was the White oblong pill. NOW, it's Oval. I have experienced WAY more pain than usual since starting this almost a month ago. I have Headaches, my ears are Ringing, I am nauseous. I looked that pill up online, and saw it was a Hydrocodone 5/500, NOT a 10/325. Can they DO That, legally? I realize there's a drug epidemic, but some of us DO need the medication. Surgery is NOT an option for me."

For Pain: "Taken as prescribed this with other prescription & over the counter meds allow me to function as well as I'll ever be able to. All pain is not removed but is lowered to point that I'm able to buck up do most of what is necessary. I have been on some type prescribed opioid almost 20 years , liver function is checked regularly, as well as for any other signs of abuse, and there has been no problems. I take for pain from 4 low back surgeries, that resulted in rsd, 'failed back surgery syndrome'. Taken as meant to be there should only be a lowering of pain, I've never experienced a 'high' from taking my pain meds."

For Cough: "I had a bad cold with sore throat and annoying cough. I was waking up coughing and miserable. After taking Norco 5 mg with acetaminophen 325 mg. I no longer had the sore throat or the cough. I could rest comfortably. I continued to take the Norco until I felt better. The Norco made a huge difference. I do not see why anyone needs to suffer when there is a solution for a short term issue."

For Pain: "This medication works wonders with no side effects for me, takes away pain and may seem to give a bit of energy probably due to not being in pain, anyone who blames their heroin addiction on pain meds are just full of it. It's their choice whether they want to do that or not, I've been on norco on and off for years and if anyone offered me 100 million to try heroin I would never do it because look where you end up ( dead most of the time ) If you take hydrocodone as prescribed you will be fine and just ease your way off on your last ones and break them in half. Why they would want to even think about getting rid of a medicine that actually helps is beyond me. I put up with severe pain because of doctors today cause of the addicts, It's sad."

For Pain: "I'm trying to figure what variations between brands!! Just started this particular brand! Gotta compare it but, seems to be doing the job ok!! Seems no doc in New Jersey will give enough to live like a human being!!! Very cruel to start someone on this and then give only two a day!! They only last 4 or 5 hours and your body is screaming through the evening and morning until you can take your next pill!!! One hell of a way to live!!! Need to go to a state that offers proper treatment!!! With rheumatoid arthritis, back, hip, shoulder and neck injury, as well as sjogrens and fibromyalgia!###!!! I suffer like a junk yard dog to core of being!!!#! Merciless !#!!!! :( I have skin problem on back as well!!! You can only hope it happens to them!#!"

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: "I take Norco for my kidney and back pain caused by a festering UTI that was getting worse. I am so happy to be on this pill Norco. The emergency department put me on it last night as well as Zofran for nausea caused by the antibiotic. The Norco causes mild stomach pain but for me takes a full 1 to 2 hours to kick in. I can actually sleep without my kidneys killing me! So happy to be on it. It is a life saver."

For Pain: "There is some filler in this medication that I am allergic to. The medication itself is not that effective. This company and North Star Pharma use the same filler that I am allergic to. My face, tongue, eyes, throat, ear drums, hands and feet swell so badly it renders the drug useless. I am taking the findings to an allergist and from hence forth will have to screen every drug I take. Thanks for that, Sincerely, Swollen"

For Back Pain: "I have a ruptured disc in the c5-c6 section of my spine. The symptoms of this injury are sometimes debilitating. I found taking norco 5-325 for break-thru pain to be very helpful. I use this medication for mainly bedtime."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: "I broke my femur at the top and had surgery to put in a plate and pins. The pain is almost intolerable. At first I was given oxy, but did not tolerate it well. The Dr. switched me to Norco and I am alert, awake and best of all out of pain. I get an upset stomach occasionally, but the Dr. has given me a prescription that controls that."

For Back Pain: "I take 5/325 for lower back pain caused by Degenerative Disk Disease. The Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen mix works wonderful but I find that the pain relief only lasts an hour or two before it begins to come back with a vengeance. It's great to have around for quick pain relief, it is not addictive despite what a lot of doctor's say. I take two a day to control my lower back pain and I've never had a problem stopping immediately for any reason. I also take Tramadol 50 mg to help relax the muscles but the Tramadol makes me really groggy where the Hydrocodone does not. The hydrocodone does cause me to be up at night but I am able to manage that and it is worth the pain relief. Highly recommend. Hard to get however, doctors don't like prescribing."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: "I'm a 54 yo woman with chronic back leg and arm pain due to degenerative disc disease. My whole lumbar is fused. 3 herniated discs in the thoracic and 5 now in the cervical that need repair. I rely on Norco just to be able to get out of bed sometimes and to do chores like cut the grass. One of the best I've taken, Only thing I've noticed is I don't sleep when I take it. I just rest. I'm now lost as the laws are changing and my surgeon cannot give me scripts due to being post surgical a year. Family Dr doesn't issue narcotics at all, so I ended up at a high priced pain clinic that will only prescribe 5/325 2x a day! what a joke....... those of us that need it can't get it ."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Back Pain: "Worked great for pain, but beware of tolerance. Taking four to six hours or longer seems impossible at times but it will give you the most relief. I have been taking four daily of yellow 3601 ( best generic norco from HEB if you ask me they are extended release as oppose to the rubbish white ones you find elsewhere) and I don't seem to get as much relief now days, one 10 mg will last approx two hours. Hard to get your doctor to understand but I am thankful for having something to help. Works great with two methocarbamol 750 or gabapentin. Have tried many prescriptions for my three herniated discs, sciatica, arthritis/ pelvis pain and these three have given me the best relief."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: "This medication has gave me my quality of life back. I have fibromyalgia and was diagnosed at 23yrs old. I started out with 5/325mg 3x a day and 4 yrs later am on 10/325 mg 4x a day. Be careful because this medication is habit forming but in combo with gabapentin and cymbalta, it works for me. By the way, I read someones comment about lortab being the same as Norco, and they are not identical. The difference is the mg of (tylenol). Hope this was helpful."
