Reviews for Acetaminophen/hydrocodone to treat Back Pain

Sort by:

"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."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): "Worked great for pain, but beware of tolerance. Taking four to six hours or longer seems impossible at times but it will give you the most relief. I have been taking four daily of yellow 3601 ( best generic norco from HEB if you ask me they are extended release as oppose to the rubbish white ones you find elsewhere) and I don't seem to get as much relief now days, one 10 mg will last approx two hours. Hard to get your doctor to understand but I am thankful for having something to help. Works great with two methocarbamol 750 or gabapentin. Have tried many prescriptions for my three herniated discs, sciatica, arthritis/ pelvis pain and these three have given me the best relief."

"After more than 5 years of taking 5/325s I have just 'graduated' to 7.5/325s. I have spinal stenosis that can at times be tremendously painful. I have horses to feed twice and day and the same for the horses. With the 7.5s I can do the chores outside and come back in and help the wife do chores in the house. It's not a 'cure all' If I push too hard it still hurts, but it does usually take enough of the edge off to let me do what I have to do, and most of the time enjoy it. I'm 69 diabetic and not really worried about addiction. I was told by a surgeon that recovery time would be nearly a year with the first month spent cursing his name, again, 69 year old diabetic."

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): "I used to be on Norco 10,for a long time they were fine I never had a problem with them no side effects at all, recently dr. Changed me to Norco 7.5, and they're terrible even though the pharmacist the doctor say they are the same ingredients ( except that 7.5 has less )they are very different 7.5are horrible they make my eyelids swell up and I can hardly see out of one eye then make me feel very sick and Ill and I also have very bad stomach pain and pain in my chest also this is horrible do not like 7.5 at all might as well not take anything Norco 7.5 are very very horrible there definitely is something in Norco 7.5 that is not in the Norco 10 so why are they hiding it from us seems like they're trying to kill.me"

"Was started on Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen 5-325 a couple weeks ago for chronic lower back pain. The first few days it worked on, about a 40% reduction in pain. After those few days the pain relief started going down. I was prescribed to take 2 pills at night as I was waking up constantly in pain. Now when I take them I get maybe a 10-15% reduction in pain. Not working well at all. It's a shame, I was looking forward to some consistent pain relief."

"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."
