I have been on Norco for about 6 months, I was on Vicodin before and my Dr upped my meds to Norco for my back pain. This pill has been wonderful, not only does it relieve my back pain, but I have no side effects other than it gives me a relaxed feeling. This is one of the best pain medications I have ever taken!!

I am a 37 yr. old female w/ sciatic nerve pain caused by damaged discs in my back. I was originally taking Darvocet N-100 and it was helping some, but then was switched to Norco 325. It worked very well with me only taking 1 tab. 3X a day. Now I can't function good without it and am waiting for my refills which have been delayed. I've experienced minor withdrawl symptoms which are worse for me at night & nothing helps my pain as well as the Norco did.

I have taken Norco 10/325 for several years for Crohn's Disease and Fibromyalgia. I prefer it to other meds such as Avinza (Morphine time release). I just works best for my pain levels (6-8). Some people just can't take it (makes them feel jumpy/hyper). Everyone is different so not everyone is going to have the same response. Make sure to not only talk to your doctor, but do some research! Read reviews! YOU are ultimately responsible for your health. Be assertive and ask questions. I take 1-2 tabs every 6hrs. I KNOW I am addicted. I'll deal with that when the time comes, but it beats being bed-ridden. Even with the Norco I have bad days that keep me in bed. Remember to start with small dosage, even if it's 1/2 tab every 6 hrs until you know how you'll respond. Good luck and God Bless.

This drug ruined my life. I started taking it approx 2 years ago for severe back problems. This drug is like alchol the more you take the more you need to continue to get the same desired affect. At my highest i was taking over 60 milligrams a day. I became physically dependant on it and have lost my career because of this drug. The withdraw symptoms were horrible and i would not wish them on anyone. I currently am enrolled in rehab. Great for pain, just be careful with this drug please.

My problem requires high doses of hydrocodone, but I wanted to limit my intake of acetamenaphen (sp) since I take it long term. 4 Norco per day @ 10/325 helps reduce the number of pills, and really reduces the acetamenaphen intake on a daily basis. Plus has reduced the nausea caused from taking so many pills to get the same amount of hydrocodone which had a high combined amount of acet.

Suffered a major work related back injury and was prescribed 10/325 Norco for chronic intense pain. Refills were endless for more than 3 years, while consuming 6-8 per day. Great for pain, terrible for life. Withdrawal was 72 hours + of absolute hell! The thought of withdrawal scared me from quitting. My Dr. felt like a dealer after a while. Still in pain, but not addicted. Careful what you wish for, a stoned existence is a waste.

I have been taking Norco now for 4 months due to severe back pain, I have degenerative disc disease and I blew out one of my discs...most days it hurts just to get out of bed, let alone carrying on with life, i am constantly thinking about my back pain, i couldn't sit still..after I was diagnosed, they put me on NORCO, I have tried tramadol as well, but that really makes me feel awful, cant eat, cant sleep, sucks..but the NORCO is a godsend, I take about 6 a day when I am in the most pain, I feel like a new person, it lets me do the things i want to do, exercise, play softball, golf, bowl, etc pain free..it does give you a boost and I can see how people can get addicted..I stopped cold turkey for about a week and there are definitely some withdrawal symptoms, mostly sweating, chills and general discomfort so be careful with it, but if used correctly, it can change your life...if you need to use pain meds..dont continually take norco, try and switch up so you dont get used to it or addicted, i was using tramadol and norco, but I dont recommend tramadol for severe pain, and if you want to eat normally, i just take tylenol on the days i dont take norco, it helps, but not like the NORCO...just be careful when using it
