Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: "I found hydrocodone to be more effective then tramadol, gabapentin then they changed the drug over the years due to drug addicts abuse. Once the gold standard until people learned how to abuse it. Taken as prescribed it is effective with little or no side effects. However, it has deadly side effects when abused or mixed with other drugs. It was made with 660mg of acetaminophen which is dangerous if taking 10 pills to get high, you could do irreparable damage to your liver. So the amount of acetaminophen was limited to 325 in each pill. Some drug addicts figured out how to crush it up, prompting even more changes in the medication to prevent that abuse. Then some unethical doctors started over prescribing it to people who didn't need it, prompting more tighter restrictions by the government. Government has moved it from schedule III to schedule II drug further limiting its use, while states make Marijuana which is listed as a schedule I drug, legal for recreational use. stop abuse."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Back Pain: "I had been taking the Watson 10/325 Norco with no problems, until Walgreens went to Mallinckrodt; total waste of time. I was told by Walgreens, that Watson no longer existed and found that unacceptable. They are worlds apart and I don’t know how they’re getting away with this. Wait, yes I do! Those that need these meds to work, so we function in life; are also victims of the opioid epidemic. So I did some research... Watson was bought out by one of two companies. Next, I began calling pharmacies, asking the brand carried. All the chain stores had the Mallinckrodt, CVS flat refused to answer & said they’d reject my prescription if I came in and asked. FINALLY, I found two local pharmacies that had different brands. I have gone to both pharmacies to try them and discovered that any brand OTHER than the Mallinckrodt works just fine. So my advice to anyone in this predicament is to try local pharmacies and step away from the Mallinckrodt garbage."

For Pain: "I have been taking the Mallinckrodt hydrocodone for four months now and it is awful! I told my Dr the issues I was having on it and he wrote on my prescription "previous manufacturer only" and Walgreens filled it with Mallinckrodt without speaking to me first! Finally the other night I talked to my pharmacist at Walgreens and asked if they could order me Watson, she said no we can't get ANY other kind of hydrocodone because Walgreens has a contract with Mallinckrodt! She said a lot of customers aren't liking the switch either and she recommended that I call around and see if I can get Watson at another pharmacy. She said to check back every month to see if they are carrying it again because these things change all the time. However, I called a family owned pharmacy in my town that has great customer service reviews and the pharmacist said he can't get Watson either, Aurobindo or KVK are the only brands available to them at this time. Has anyone on here tried either of these brands?"

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: "Rx for pain following laparoscopic surgery. Either my pain level after outpatient surgery was so high that it would cause me to be unconscious or screaming, or this Rx didn't work with my body as my pain level the day after surgery was 9 with this medication. (5-325mg every 6 hours. ) Side effects for me were confusion and dizziness."

For Pain: "Have taken Watson 7.5 with acetaminophen for approx 10 years and have tolerated it well with decent pain relief I have been told by my pharmacy that it is no longer being manufactured due to lawsuits Malinkrodt brand is absolutely garbage it causes me muscle tension and headache, the exact condition I'm taking it to relieve Malinkrodt hydrocodone has been recalled many times for quality issues. They must be bribing the right politicians Most reviews on this site are about how terrible Malinkrodt is. At least I realize its not just me that feels this I used to think it was due to the inert ingredients but, now I think it's due to their pills not having the right main ingredient or the right quantity of the main ingredient."

For Pain: "I agree with everyone that this brand does not reduce pain. I agree with everyone that Walgreens is not willing to help their customers. Their Pharmacy Managers could help if they wanted by Inquiring to their District Managers, their Corporate Pharmaceutical Buyers. They should be asking themselves "HOW we can help these customers...why can’t we order Watson so everyone can live a less painful life? Why can’t we help these people? " Their bottom line profit is there only interest. I have questioned my Walgreens location and attempted to question their Corporate Staff too. On the Corporate end they don’t care...they refuse to return calls. They direct it back to the location that won’t make any attempt to help. Now to this brand...the company ”Mallinckrodt” has had recalls on their Norco for inadequate mixture. More compounding less narcotic."

For Back Pain: "I've been reading a lot of people complaining about the norco 10/325 M367 the Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals brand . I totally agree with what everyone is saying about this manufacturer and how these pills make me feel sick to my stomach and do not work nearly as well as Watson brand , I've asked the pharmacist at Walgreens why they have stopped selling watsons and I've been told they are having a hard time getting them into stock, apparently I'm not the only one complaining to the pharmacy about this issue , I'm also hoping to switch and get away from these bogus M367 pills . After 4 back surgeries and a spinal fusion I'm tired of being in pain from subpar medication and the government not looking into what kind of fillers and dosage issues . Good luck to all looking for Watson brand ."

For Rheumatoid Arthritis: "Since all the pharmacies in my area have switched to Tris brand, everyone I know have gotten sick from them. Everybody complains and pharmacies don't care, Drs and Pharmacist treat all patients bad like they are addicts, even legitimately ill patients. They are truly playing god . FYI, i did my research and found out watson was sued by the state of Mississippi and so sold out to activis and are no longer making watsons."

For Back Pain: "The M367 by Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals don't work . Most are drugs are outsourced to other countries but keep the US name. The Watson branded 10/325 only ones that work even though bought out couple yrs ago n made in Japan. The Malincrodkt are worthless it doesn't even show up on a drug test. FILED FDA COMPLAINT"

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: "I have been on Norco for 13 years for pain relief and have no side effects. The main problem is finding a doctor to prescribe them. Many doctors mistakenly think by cutting down or stopping writing scripts for Norco, there are less overdoses. Actually the people that legitimately take it for pain are suffering and the people abusing it have switched to heroin, which there are many more ODs from. Heroin is not controlled so it can contain deadly ingredients; also an addict could be used to a certain strength and unknowingly buy something stronger that could kill them. This law has caused more deaths, but most doctors haven't done the research I have and don't know this. I think the doctors should get personally involved with the patients; I would gladly answer any questions and give permission for them to check my legal history. Then hopefully the people in pain would get help and the people abusing drugs could go to rehab to get off it. That's when we'll see a drop in ODs and deaths."

For Back Pain: "The government is definitely messing with the chronic pain sufferers. I pick up my meds today and for some reason my meds were cut in half. I’ve been taking Norco 10mg x 3 and 2 OxyContin 10mg slow release for the past 8 years. How do they get away with this?"

Vicodin HP (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: "This was the only drug that worked for my pain. Oxy-type doesn't work for me for some reason and I cannot take NSAIDs. It appears they stopped manufacturing it, however, and now I'm stuck with generics that are horrible because they are not tested regularly for quality. :("

For Pain: "To everyone who complaints on these generic rip offs who feel they aren't putting the active Ingredient in their pills please file complaints w the manufacturer as well as the FDA. It's the only way they MAY stop doing this . I suffer daily my dr will not write name brand only why idk these dr want us to suffer I believe. We need people to step up to stop this torturing of pain patients."

For Not Listed / Other: "I have had severe pain issues for 10+ years, fibromyalgia, psoriatic arthritis, neuropathy and neuralgia. I’m have been getting Norco 10/325 for at least 4 years. In all that time I never misused my medicine. I used to get my prescription from Walgreens they used the Watson/Activas brand of Norco which worked really well for me. I always had pain meds left over every month then in August of 2018 Walgreens switched manufacturers to Mallinckrodt brand it kicks in in 15 minutes which is great but only lasts 3 hours maximum. This is terrible. I’ve been in so much pain for months. I tried to switch to CVS and they had no problems filling all my other medications but sent me back to Walgreens for my Norco. I couldn’t believe it. Why would anyone want to get medicine from two different places?. That’s just insane to me. So I switched again to Costco they use a different brand I’ve never heard of so I’m hoping for the best. I"

For Pain: "The M365 tablet (5/325) produced by Mallinckrodt is a JOKE. Did not relieve post-op abdominal surgery pain. The only thing I felt, after taking the pill at 8pm, was a terrible headache the next morning. Thinking it was a fluke, I took another one around 12pm. Again, no pain relief, but another terrible headache around 10pm that night. I spoke with the clinical pharmacist at our military hospital and she is reporting this on the FDA’s Medwatch website. I encourage everyone who has had problems with this drug/company to report it, also. It’s a shame they are allowed to continue manufacturing this useless product."

For Back Pain: "I’ve has every Tom, Dick and Harry brand since I begun taking these pre 2000 and now most recently 2011. Today I got the upteenth brand called (Wes303, light blue) made by Wes Labs. Now I believe the previous posters that mallencroft is crap. The only ones I know 100% work are Watson yellows. I have no idea how these new ones are going to work but I do agree the govt is messing with my pain meds!!! I’m chronic forever"

For Pain: "I suffer from arthritis and severe leg pain. I was thankful to read the comments here regarding Mallinckrodt hydrocodone. I have used both 7.5 and 10, and I find little relief, but I am feeling terrible (irritable, depressed, constipated). My pharmacy is still unable to get Qualitest. I found a pharmacy with Aurolife, so I'll try it, but I can't do the Mallinckrodt."

For Not Listed / Other: "I found some info I think EVERYONE who has been forced by Walgreens to switch to G 037 norco pills, manufactured by TRIS Pharma, should be aware of. (G 035 is 5mg version) The FDA has investigated Tris Pharma multiple times over the years and most recently early this year for significant violations of current good manufacturing practice (CGMP) regulations. Basically, Tris has a bad track record of properly regulating the potency of their products. The FDA warned them they had to fix violations regarding ADHD stimulants, oral morphine sulfate solutions, and oral hydrocodone suspensions for cough suppression in a letter titled "WARNING LETTER|CMS # 534537." You can google this letter yourself by looking up the title. If Tris has violations involving potency of those medications, its safe to assume the potency of their norco pills could also be affected."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: "Norco worked pretty well for me at the right dose and when rx'd with muscle relaxers. However, I was originally rx'd long acting opioids because I had liver damage due to Halothane toxicity and taking a single ingredient opioid was safer. With the new "guidelines" I can't even find a doctor who's okay with rxing Norco so I'm back to taking high doses of acetaminophen. The govt has really screwed chronic pain patients."

For Rheumatoid Arthritis: "Had used Qualitest Brand for years (pink with V and very hard tablet) and would have rated pain relief a 7. CVS will not carry Qualitest anymore and gave me Lupin. I get virtually no relief and they aggravate my ulcer to the point I have to take Carafate. I take them as ordered. At my last doctors appointment, they did a urine screen. NO hydrocodone was found in my urine. I had taken one the night before at 8pm and one at 8am. The test was at 1pm. The pharmacy has now given me a different brand. Qualitest was recalled for having too much acetomenophin. Myland is now distributing the Qualitest brand. The pharmacist is ordering those to see if it helps. It is absurd there is such a variance in quality and strength. We will see how this goes!"

For Pain: "Like everyone else, I’ve been taking the Generic for Norco 10/325 (qualitest yellow pill) for pain relief. The way my system breaks down the meds, the only generic that gives me relief & no side effects (fillers & binding ingred) is Qualitest/Par Pharma. Since July the meds have been on backorder & like others I’ve been given subpar substitutes-Malincrap & Sun (India based) these are the worst-main ingredients are inconsistent. I got ahold of Par Pharma & found out that they will be releasing the first batch 1st week of November & 2nd Batch mid November. They did not change the formula so good news for those of us that find relief from this brand. I resent the fact that I am being forced to take a specific brand of meds that do not work for me due to formula and lack of quality control. This is due to the government limiting production w/ pharma manufacturers . Good Luck out there fellow yellow norco patients, we just need to hold on/deal with subpar meds & pain til November."
