"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."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): "Norco has been good to relieve my pain from my L2, L3, L4 discs herniated and resulting pain level 8 in lower back and down the sciatica nerve in my legs. much better than morphine which makes me feel like I'm asleep and trying to move thru cement. It really has done a good job of lowering the pain level and consequently I can function relatively well and get some things done each day, giving me a better quality of life instead of just focusing on the pain. I know I've become addicted but I'd rather be addicted to something that helps me than constantly suffer from pain and have misery day after day."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): "I found Norco to be highly effective in keeping my back, shoulder, and neck pain under control and still allowing me to function as a professional (at least for the most part). I have taken Norco on and off over the last three years due to a series of accidents. I have taken Norco as my only source of pain medication, and, I found it was pretty easy for me to leave behind once the the injury was healed. I had two surgeries this summer (June and July). I began taking Norco in April, and had shoulder surgery in June and continued on the Norco. In July I had spinal surgery and was put on Dilaudid and MS Contin for four weeks. At the end of the four weeks my withdrawal symptoms were exceedingly painful, both physically and mentally."

"I have been taking this for about 3 days for back pain.. along with flexeril due to back spasms making it difficult to breath without pain... at first it was just taking deep breaths then breathing in general began to be painful because it was putting a lot of pressure on my back causing more spasms and pain. I tried Tylenol and ibprofin and it wasn't really helping. The hydrocod/aceta 5-325 mg has been so much help. I can breath now without pain however when the med wears off I feel like I have been hit by a bus. The Dr put 1-2 tablets every 4 to 6 hours but I am seeing that 1 in the morning and 1 before bed does justice. Hopefully soon the pain completely goes away...."

"I have had 24 surgeries over the past 18 years had a very severe fall this medication has made it possible for me to live a normal life I have heard of people abusing this drug maybe I'm the lucky 1 because if I take more than it says to take or too soon it makes me nauseous but only if I don't wait at least 5 hours between doses"

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): "I take hydrocodone 10mg/325MG. Of acetaminophen. I have bulging disks in my lower back on my spine and they hit certain nerves. I have had a great experience with this medicine. I don't have any side effects except for some itching. It allows me to function and continue to work a fast paced job where I'm on my feet. You just have to careful to not take more than prescribed because most people don't realize how addicting it can be. Read the papers that you get from the pharmacy and ask questions. If used correctly this drug is very beneficial."
