"I have been taking the Watson brand for over ten years and it helped me tremendously with my RA pain. Now I am having to resort to this pill bc NO PHARMACY will order the Watson brand! Why is this? Does any one know bc this pill does not touch the pain like the Watson brand. I hope I am not the only one that thinks this pill doesn't work as well... Is it the chemical make-up bc I was told generic is just the same... To me it's not! One pharmacy does carry the Watson brand but does not take my insurance so I have to pay full price! In my opinion this is why we have these pills being sold on the streets bc people who actually needs them cannot get them in pharmacies! Any one have an opinion on this?"

"This medication was similar to taking just Tylenol. Did not improve my mobility at all and did not touch my pain level."

"In the past four yours , my disease has progressed . I have been able to control my pain with hydrocodone. Recently started getting Watson 853 . The pain has returned , now stomach upset and headache . Plus tired all the time . I take 2 10 mg 325 . Now I feel I have to take more . I have read on other sites that Watson was bought by another company . What did they do ? Please let us consumers and chronic pain patients the respect we deserve , and tell the truth . We're not crazy , you changed the active binding ingredients . Was this to save money ? Well I'd rather stop purchasing this placebo and deal with my pain. I just hope that no one dies by taking to much . Because I've read how patients are over medicating to get relieve ."

Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): "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."

"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."

"This medicine was taken primarily for shoulder pain. It helped very little as there was always a little pain in the shoulder when I took them. The pain never actually went away. The pill only lessened the pain but did not eliminate it."

"I have been taking Vicodin 5/500 for the past four years for rheumatoid arthritis and Osteoporosis. I tried Norco 5/325 when I had my knee replacement and it made me drowsy with a brain fog and nauseated. I asked my surgeon to give me Vicodin and he insisted that it was all the same. I continued to try the Norco and just did not like it so I called my primary care physician and she put me back on the Vicodin. What a relief. Vicodin really helps my pain. "

Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): "I've had back pain for years. Then I started getting really bad pain in my knee and found out I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis and I'm only 28 yrs old. I have been on Lortab 10/500 for 6 yrs. Then started going to a pain specialist and I'm now on Tramadol ER 300mg 1x a day and Norco 10/325 4-6x a day and it works miracles. I also take the muscle relaxer, Flexeril and it helps very well too. I still have pain but I always will for the rest of my life because of my arthritis. But these medicines makes life much better."

Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): "I am 28 and have severe RA and fibromyalgia. I was on Darvocet which worked good. But then that was taken off the market. I've been on Vicodin for a little while now and it works wonders for me. Which is great since I'm up chasing my 5 yr old all day. It's the only other medicine I've tried that actually works."

Lortab (acetaminophen / hydrocodone): "Dealing with chronic pain is never easy. I've tried Mobic but it led to stomach bleeding. I've tried vicoprofen but it made me swell and ache even more. Have used Vicodin but of course tolerance resulted. I now find that Lortab and Lorcet work great. I only need to take 2 a day for real relief. The only other combination I used that worked was Vioxx once a day and Vicodin 2x a day. Wish they hadn't taken Vioxx off the market."
