Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) 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."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) 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 Pain: "It's really good when it comes to pain. The only thing I did not like how sleepy it made me feel. But it is a good medicine to take for any type of pain."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) 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."

Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Rheumatoid Arthritis: "I have tried different medications (Diladuids, Percocet ) as I have had 2 knee replacements and another because 1 became infected. Vicodin has been better because of fewer side effects."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) 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. "

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) 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."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) 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."

I have a Concussion, Lubosacrial Strain, Cervical Strain etc. I have not taken to much of the medication yet.

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 Back Pain: "I've been on Hydrocodone 10/325 for almost a year now and it works great! I suffer from chronic sciatica pain caused by L4-L5 disc. It dosen't get rid of the pain completely but it makes it more tolerable."

For Pain: "I have had my tendon behind my knee cap replaced, the left side of my skull about half is a plate, Arthritis in both wrist, (not good as I was a professional Drummer) and Norco works. Now it doesn't take all of the pain away but, a good majority of it. "

For Back Pain: "Significan Arthritis at L4,5, and S1 with no surgical options. Muscle spasms that will put me on my knees and I'm over six feet tall; long way to fall. I've been on 10/325 for about five years; that's a long time. I take ONE a day usually late afternoon. Typically I get a little drowsy but can work through any residual pain until bed time. Oh, I've also got two artificial knees thanks to my service in the US Navy. And this stuff works on the pain from them too. Yes, artificial knees can still hurt you. I'd prefer to have the back pain dealt with at it's source rather than it's symptoms, but to date, no one has any idea about how to do that. Until then, I keep a bottle of pain killers near by."

For Pain: "Migraine headaches have plagued me for the last 5 years. They are a daiIy occurance and I wouldn't wish this level of pain on anyone. I tried every non narcotic medicine - propanalol, Imitrex, ibuprofen, cyclobenzine, Cafergot, even botox and aromatherapy it smelled good but didn't help. Finally my neurologist suggested Norco. At last some substantial pain relief. Now I can function and get things done, the Norco has definitely helped me."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) 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!"

Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: "Prescribed this after Wisdom tooth removal. Worked fine with no issues at a fairly low dose. Use the Lowest dose for ONLY as long as needed. Then used Tylenol after that for a few days and all went well. Use these as your doc says only."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) 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 Rheumatoid Arthritis: "I've had rheumatoid arthritis for 18 years with both hips and one knee replaced. I do very well and remain active on 5 Norco (10/325) in 24 hours. I rarely need it at night. Doctors are under pressure to reduce hydrocodone because they are prone to abuse. My doctor keeps trying to cut me back, first to 4 and next to 3. Nothing else works as well for me. It has less acetaminophen than Vicodin. I'm becoming depressed and less active because I can't control the pain. I wonder if others are experiencing this."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) 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."
