Reviews for Acetaminophen/hydrocodone to treat Back Pain

Sort by:

Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): "I had been on Vicodin off and on for the last twelve years until recently. My doctor will no longer prescribe this for me because of all the addiction news that is going on with the government. I have had 2 spinal fusions in the past 15 years and never abused the drug nor had any addiction problems. It is the only medicine that helped my pain. I have not found anything to replace it. I now take 4 Motrin at a time along with a herbal supplement called Kratom. This lessens the pain somewhat but am still in severe pain at times. I had no noticeable side effects from the Vicodin."

"Works great at first but has a short shelf life. Otherwise, effects wear off soon."

"I'm 74 had back surgeries, I've 5 years and my back hurts worse now than ever. Dr prescribed hydrocodone /acetaminophen 10 /325 got the yellow pills with a V on them and they eased the pain enough to function ok for 3 years. Yesterday CVS gave me white chalky and too soft pills made by LUPIN. Worst quality I've ever seen and does not help my pain at all. Can't believe CVS would treat their customers that bad ! Will not buy anything there again neither will my family."

"I'm 61 and have been dealing with chronic back pain since 2009 . And I have taking ibuprofen, Advil and Tylenol to see if it will help with the pain. I had to stop that in fear of what it would do to my body. Because I had to take too many with no success. So so I knew I could not keep taking all them pills with the fear of what it will do to my liver. I cannot do things like going for a walk, working around the house or even taking a shower without the pain flaring up. And the Acetaminophen /Hydrocodone dose not help like I thought. Not sure if it's the Brand or the 7.5 mg that they have me on. But it only works for about half hour and that's only if I'm not up and moving around . I can't even go the store with out getting a cart to lean on while I'm grocery shopping. Can't be on my feet but for a short time before my back starts to hurt."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): "Taking this solidly about 5 yrs now. PEOPLE PLEASE; If you take anything...there is a risk to become addicted. How many are you drink sodas, eat junk food or diet sodas daily? All can hurt you, possibly kill you. If you have real pain, this works. Be responsible and take what is prescribed. If your body is getting use to the dose, tell your doctor. Don't take more. Sometimes taking this can cause rebound headaches. Will cause constipation. Can make your skin dry. This medicine does not make me drowsy or slows my heart rate. It could for you. Be safe. Live well."

"I spent 30 years with the same doctor in Oklahoma. When I moved to Texas, I was farmed out to Pain Management where I was given Norco. Two years later, I have taken myself off of it because I no longer want to be part of a system that treats me like I am on parole. My insurance will pay for 13 drug tests if its in network. There are 10 pages of labs but 2 clinics could care less and would prefer I pay $150. each month probably because that’s how they are doubling their money. I am surprised they did not require I live in some lab so I can be studied while on their precious ineffective Norco. Everyone just spend your money on CBD oil. It is a hard road taking Norco three times a day for two years. Luckily I didn’t have a stroke."

"The lupin brand hydrocodone has nothing for my pain and I have been sick to my stomach and exhausted and almost like I'm having withdrawals. The hydrocodone with the v on it always worked well."

Lortab (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): "I've been taking hydrocodone 10/325 with M367 imprint for chronic back pain for 5 years with good pain relief. Pharmacy switched vendors now pills have imprint G 037. I've been taking them as directed for 3 days with no pain relief."

"What we need to be asking is why is hydrocodone being regulated. If they're only issue is Health concern and the number of deaths. Why are they not targeting cigarettes and alcohol there is a liquor store on every corner and you can get cigarettes anywhere. People die from drunk driving accidents everyday people die from drinking too much alcohol everyday people die from lung cancer every day but the government makes money off of cigarettes and alcohol. That is why they are not regulating these two things."

"Due to a desire to make more money rather than supply a product that works, my recent supply of pain medicine from CVS was from a company called Amaeal. Previously, they supplied Qualitest which was sufficient for a generic pain med. This switch to Amaeal was a horrible choice by CVS, and it should be noted that they tried this stunt several years ago and had such an outcry that they switched back. Over the past several months the same thing has happened but they have no desire to listen to their customers. So if you have chronic pain and want a product that works, DO NOT USE this brand. As a result of their corporate attitude, I took all of my business to another company, and I hope that after reading this post, that you do the same."

"I agree with the user review regarding Lupin, the brand of hydrocodone that CVS sells. Not only did I get NO relief from my chronic pain but experienced awful side effects such as feeling like I'm going to pass out along with dizziness."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): "I broke a rib and was given Norco 5/325 in the ER. No pain management whatsoever. I quit taking it and went back to self-medicating. Norco is that ineffective."

"I am not at all pleased with this supply of what my pharmacy gave me this month. They have hardly any affect for the pain I have in my back. They are soft and have a chalky film on them that make me feel sick to my stomach when they start to dissolve in mouth before I can get them swallowed. This product needs to be pulled from the shelf."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): "This medicine does absolutely nothing to relieve pain. I have a compression fracture in the 5th vertebra and standing or walking cause unbearable pain. I was given this medicine in the ER and I might as well be taking sugar pills. I filled the prescription at a well-known drugstore chain. Are these fake pills? If so, how did the drugstore get them? I understand I am not the only one to have this experience."

"So an MRI showed I have arthritis in the spine, spinal stenosis and a bulging disk L5-S1 pushing against my spinal cord. Been having chronic back pain for many many years, and now I know why. Doctors put me on Norco 5-325 along with muscle relaxers and other meds. The hydrocodone does allow me to live a somewhat normal life now but I don't wanna be on these opioids forever but if it allows me to be pain free then so be it"

"I have degenerative disc disease, bulging disc, and arthritis in my back and neck. And used Norco yellow pill, recently 2 months ago Kaiser changed Manufacture to Mallink and I am having horrible side effects and new unusual pain ( like I'm withdrawing or tapering off & I'm taking same dosage) I'm also extremely tired & fatigue, which I've never experienced. I was in denial it was the change of manufacture, but now I'm convinced it's the Mallink brand. Prior with the yellow pill my pain decreased significantly and able to work and do normal activities. Now I'm exhausted, in severe pain, and having stomach upset. Why is a change in manufacture causing this. Is something wrong with Mallink manufacture?"

"I've been dealing with chronic low back pain for about 3 years now due to 3 herniated discs and spinal stenosis. My doctor has me on Norco 10/325 along with other medications. Thanks to this medication I have a better quality of life and am able to continue working and going to school. The only down side to this medication is the brand differences. I've noticed some brands work better than others. For me the White Watson 853 are complete junk. The brand I feel that works best is Mallinckrodt M367 (which is the same brand the hospital uses) or the Yellow 3601 V pills."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): "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?"

"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."

"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."

"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."
