Reviews for Acetaminophen/hydrocodone to treat Back Pain

Sort by:

"I have had sciatica nerve pain for over a year. The depart of labor has not been very coperative with my doctors. My sciatic nerve pain as well as lower back pain has gotten worse month by month, this is due to a fall at work, the 5-325 only seems to work when used with muscle relaxers as well as pain medication for anti-inflammation/pain. I wake up daily with pain, after taking the pain meds I can function thoughout the day. But taking 5-325 by itself does nothing to control the pain. I have to take all three at once twice a day. When I'm physically active (doing dishes, sweeping, or preparing food), my pain increases 3x for the next 2 days. I have to take all 3 meds at least 3 times a day. Plz dept of labor approve the surgery. Thx"

Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): "That stuff made me so sick I wanted to die. It was like a terminal case of the flu. And oxycontin made me itch so bad I scratched with a hairbrush. Guess I wouldn't be a very good addict. I have a magnetic belt I ordered from a catalog and it helps more than medication - perhaps it's the magnets but I suspect it's more a case of giving me more back support. Prescribed back braces were too big and heavy to wear so they're out. I think every person who ever suffered from REAL back pain would be overwhelmed with joy if there was just a magic wand that would take the pain away permanently."

"I was prescribed hydrocodone 10/325 for about a year combined with a muscle relaxer for back pain. As the pain got more and more severe, this medication stopped working and I was moved to something stronger. Hydrocodone doesn't work long for chronic pain suffers, but it works good in the beginning."

Lortab (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): "I was on lortab 10/500 for 14 years from 2000 until 2014 after having 2 lower back surgeries for chronic pain it worked best for me with the least side effects in 2014 it's like no longer available I'm guessing in fl. Or the U.S now for 4 months I'm on hydrocodone 10/325 it is not effective at all for me I don't get any relief from it so I'm not as functional I'm in the bed more because of the pain and no relief from the 10/325. what happen to the Lortab 10/500 ?"

"I suffer from arthritic pain all over, fingers growing crooked, etc. Stiffness, pain, and severely limited movement are characteristic. I use (I think Watson) hydrocodone of 7.5/325 acetaminophen. It's a godsend. Allows me to work doing much of the work I did as a young man, although certainly not as fast, and of course, being 69, not as strong either. I usually take one in the morning, if needed one in the afternoon, then again a little before bedtime. I have never had to take more than 4 in one day, that only a few times. Have been using for about two years now, and it knocks the hell out of inflammation from this disease. I don't perceive any addiction and I have no notable negative effects. Occasionally use Tylenol PM instead."

"M367 do NOT work as well as other generic brands of this drug. I have used many other generic brand of Norco and I am getting very little pain relief. Just picked these up today from my pharmacy. I was surprised when they were not the yellow ones. 10/325 hydrocodone apap. Stuck with them for a month now as another narcotic will not be prescribed due to new laws. I have, degenetative osteoarthritis of the spine with end stage cervical and lumbar stenosis/ spondylosis and more. Over the top chronic pain."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): "I go to pain management and seem to alternate between Norco & 10mg oxycodone.. I have to take more oxy combined with morphine per day to equal Norco 4 times daily, but they are both very addicting.... I hide it from my two children as they would have a fit. They are over 25 , to sum it up. I would rather take the Norco for my pain I think the Norco is the better pain medicine for back pain combined with what walking I can manage ."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): "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."

"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): "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."

"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"

"I received 5/325 prescription to pass a kidney stone or pain thought to be from stones. It helped to lesson the ache so I could sleep but after just a few days the dose didn't do much of anything. Taking 10/325 helps but I can't function on it. Ten days later since ER trip and even taking one pill or less a day and I feel kind of like a zombie, have nausea and dark urine. I do not know for a fact it's from the medicine so I do think it's worth trying if you have mild to medium pain. I wouldn't make a habit of it since its known to be very addictive...if you can deal with the pain."

Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): "There are only a few temporary pain medications that are better than this, and this should be highly considered upon initial severe pain relief until a more permanent solution can be sought after."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): "For severe pain and problems in the lower back this should be the very least that is recommended for pain, at least temporarily until something else can be figured out (injection blocks, PT, etc). This has helped me more than almost anything else I've tried, and after taking these my sharp shooting pain turns into just a "heart-beat" type throb that I can feel in my lower back."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): "I have Fibro, Spinal Stenosis (severe) and Neuropathy, and occasional migraine headaches. I've been taking the Norco 7.5/325 for five years and it works, along with my 90mg of Cymbalta and 10mg Valium x2 a day. I haven't had to ask for an increase in my meds ever. The pain is always there but manageable. I can grocery shop and do light housework daily. I can drive myself with no danger. I have taken myself off the Norco quite a few times. I might go five to seven days without it just to see if I'm addicted. I hurt a lot but even though I have a full bottle in the bathroom I'm able to resist taking them and not get sick."
