I have cronic back pain due to an injury. I had surgery in March of 2003 to try to repair the damage, but it was not successful. So I have was prescibed Hydrocodone/APAP, and if not for this medication, I would no longer be able to work or have a normal life. (I also take Neurontin for nerve pain and Ultram for inflamation.) But due to those people who abuse such medications, it is hard to find a ...

This drug is a narcotic , only patients with chronic back pain are druggies that want a addiction supply . It does nothing for pain other than making you feel stoned so u wont feel nothing , and doctors that prescribe this should be sorry for themselves.this should be taken off the market . This is pretty much the same thing as vicodin.
Been on everything from fentanyl to norco since 2008. Idk what these are or claim to be, but their definitely not the 325/7.5mg Norco I’m very used too. If you’re stuck w amneal, kvk, ameriquest, malloncrodt, etc. Refuse em, their basically sugar pills @ this point
I've been taking Mallinckrodt Hydrocodone for over 5 years... I will say that it is not the best Generic Hydrocodone but it is better than apotex Hydrocodone, Mylan Hydrocodone and others.The best Generic Hydrocodone hands down was watson . The Mallinckrodt hydrocodone as of 2022 is completely different and is now 5 times weaker then it was originally. With all the legal problems and lawsuits that Mallinckrodt has been under. I'm pretty sure it has a big reason on why Mallinckrodt has reformulated their Hydrocodone and why it's so weak.. The two main things that I noticed was that now the pills have a shiny coat to them and that the pills are hard when you chew them. The old Mallinckrodt hydrocodone pills had a powdered look to them and was soft and very easy to chew. These new mallinckrodt hydrocodone pills have a hard shiny glossy look and when you chew them, they crush up like like hard candy. They are very weak and don't even help with pain or sleep.Read More Read Less
I must say this medication helped me alot after an accident and I will always be grateful to statepharmacy.org and their wonderful staff for always delivering my medications in time and checking up on me to make sure I was okay.
I have been taking Norco also for about 6 yrs and they definitely changed it again just 2 months ago. It is loaded with caffeine and the pain meds is almost nothing. It makes my heart race. Not good!
The medication works better than any other medications I have tried. The problem is how difficult getting the medication has been. I feel like I am constantly begging for it. Dr.s and pharmacies are so afraid of the DEA. Is there anything I can do? My quality of life is seriously compromised wout pain medication.
I have been on mallinckrodt Norco M367 mallinckrodt for 28 years I've found it at my local pharmacy yesterday and it has changed in the last 4 months it's very different now it's making my ears ring very loudly this has ruined my life i don't think I can stay on it it has been reformulated. If someone else is having this problem with this medication i would like to know Thanks
I have both a herniated disc as well as lifestage peripheral neuropathy. I was on tramadol, but that became ineffective. So now in addition to tramadol I am also been prescribed hydrocodone acetaminophen 7.5. Works great
With this med I can function. I’ve never been high , light headed , or dizzy from it . I only take it as prescribed during the day . Nights are painful for me and that way I know how severe my pain is and don’t need to function at night .
I have been taking hydrocodone for 8 years for bone spurs in my neck and spinal stenosis. Recently I noticed this medicine hardly works for me anyone. I have to double my dose to relieve my pain. It also puts me in a nasty depressed mood. It also upsets my stomach. Hydrocodone never did that to me in the eight years I have been taking it. All of a sudden I am getting side effects? Something changed here and I have to believe the drug companies changed the formula. It is to the point where I am going to ask my pain doctor for something else.Read More Read Less
It just doesn’t seem like Real product is inside these pills I don’t think you’re putting opium in these pills you’re using something else other than opium I have a lot of experience with pain Pills with all types of situations and I just feel your product is becoming either not the real thing or cutting down the strength without contracts buyers pharmacies customers purchasing I do feel there’s a miss leading in your Percocet medication I’m seriously serious about this and I know you won’t like what I’m saying here I don’t even know if you go to the right management CEO president vice president stockholders call he control personnel somebody needs to check into this I’m going to do my best whatever I can do to get this going forward this is my assessment you don’t have to agree with it but please somebody or people mentioned above get involved and start checking your quality making sure the right amount of I am your albums or The quality are making sure it’s the real thing being adding to your manufacturing of Percocet… Somebody is doing something wrong or more than somebody cheating pharmaceutical companies and Myers I hope somebody takes it serious thank you so much for Allowing me to give my opinion I will do all I can to get something working on this myself I don’t know what I can do but I’m gonna try I hope you guys take this serious maybe the CEO president vice president stockholders start looking into the quality somethings wrong.Read More Read Less
People are complaining in this site for this being a drug/narcotic. YES IT IS A NARCOTIC. Anything used in moderation and prescribed as such is a medication and NOT something for you to get high off. I am a recent covid/kidney/surgery patient and the 5-325 was prescribed for 2.5 days worth. I took yesterday, probably will take 2 today, and 1 tomorrow. Then I will pray to God the pain by then is bearable to no-more!! Use it as it is meant to be used and it works. Otherwise lots of things in this world used for the wrong reasons is a DRUG! I used to know a dude who used to inhale gasoline.......Hope he is still alive today somewhere in the world.....Read More Read Less
Received 5-325mg for molar tooth pain. On antibiotics but nothing stops that constant pain shooting to my brain, left jaw and nerves system. It’s literally driving me insane because I can’t get the teeth pulled because I’m on antibiotics. Cancer sores are the worse. And I don’t know how I got them they hurt worse. Then the tooth pain. I’m tired and sleepy. Hopefully when I visit my PCP next week he am prescribe something that actually stops the pain. I feel like I’m taking meds for no reason with no pain relieve. Literally feel nothing after taking these oils. The orajel mouth wash works better than these pills.Read More Read Less
I am 41 yo female with 3 back surgeries to date. I have progressive Degenerative Disc Disease, osteoarthritis of the entire spine, Schmorles (sp?)Nodes, my fingers and toes go numb at times, new herniation in L-3&4, narrowing disc space causing the sciatic nerve to be pinched on both left & right sides w/severe sciatic pain running down the legs, and now my spine is no longer aligned due to the fusion “slipping” out of place. I am in A LOT of pain daily. I have been taking Norco 10/325 for the past decade. The old blue Watson worked extremely well, but years ago my Walgreens pharmacy switched to Tris G 037- which is better than the awful dreaded Malinkrodt ones, and now, I have picked up the Lupin n 358 10 which so far seems to work pretty well (as I cannot find Watson brand anymore.) I do combine the hydrocodone/ acetaminophen with 10 mg Flexeril, 600 mg gabapentin, and 50 mg arthritis pill, just not all at the same time. I think this medication works pretty decently ( Lupin is my 2nd best brand for me) when used in combination with other medications. I got sick of medications and quit going to the doctor for nearly 2 months only to return as my quality of life went downhill. I think if you are lucky enough to get the right generic brand that works for you, this medication is pretty good. I go from a 8 to about a 4 or 5 on the pain scale. Those of us with chronic pain know ANY relief is welcome. It does cause nausea in some patients though. I’d say give it a try. Read More Read Less
So for the past few yrs this generic norco/hydrocodone has been nothing but garbage. I might get 1 legit rx per year that actually works & doesn't make me SICK! 2 MOS. ago I rec'd my Generic norco rx by Amneal, I was shocked, it worked so good, only had to take one vs the two I usually take. It didn't make me feel horrible, throw up or anything bad! Shocked! Last month, new mfr., this time Tris. I've heard bad things abt this one. But surprisingly it was halfway decent. Helped my pain but mind heartburn. This month, April, I got the Amneal again. I honestly have nvr been so disgusted in my life! When I got it 2 mos ago I thought, finally it's back to legit normal medicine, right? NO, this crap was pure garbage, I threw up all night. No pain relief, no matter how much I ate, my stomach kept feeling so raw and empty that I kept throwing up every hour, stomach bloated like I was 8 mos pregnant, plus terrible heartburn!! How could this be?? Same pharmacy. Of course there are never mfr lot numbers on the bottles, are there? Monday I am calling pharmacy and getting these lot numbers and heads are gonna roll! I'm calling Amneal and I am going to fill out that FDA 3055 firm or whatever number form it is & reporting this! I have had it, 5 years of this garbage crap, it has to black market, or hell the mfr itself. Go watch a video on YouTube, search ''poor quality generic drugs+Ted Talk.' There's a lady who explains it ALL & spills the beans on these unsanitary nasty plants were they're made overseas. Doctored up fraudulent test reports that our dumb azz FDA buys. These high paying FDA inspectors are sitting on their lazy a**es drawing huge paychecks allowing us to suffer in pain & get grossly sick from this crap. It's 2022 & it seems no one is accountable to their negligence anymore so why not just fly by the seat your pants & draw that huge FDA gov check? No one will EVER know that you're not really testing & analyzing this garbage! God knows what is in this stuff. I dropped one in a glass of water & no crap, it dissolved instantly! They are not putting near the active ingredient in these generic Norco that they s/b. A 10 mg is more like a 1 mg and this is why you get zero pain relief. WHEN will someone do something? I know there are thousands of more ppl who experience this too. 20 -30 yrs ago they would never get away with this, but today, no problem, different generation in the work force, most really seem not to care abt the product, the fraud, and the harm its causing.Read More Read Less
I believe that the manufacturer has been changing the formula, I had found a couple of older medications, took 1 and Wow! Watson it Worked!! What Happened??
This works about as well as can be expected. I don't think there is any medicine that can completely stop the pain. I can share the experiences of other posters, some generics are absolute garbage.The Wes Pharma works decent. Norvel so far is the best generic I have had. The Mallinckrodt should be taken completely off the market. I had those for one month and it was the hardest month since my chronic issues began years ago.
I have osteo arthritis, lumbar problems, and fibromyalgia. This is the only thing that gets me through the bad days (especially weather-related). I can take 3 a day but try not to if the pain isn't too bad. My pain is generally rated at 7 every day but often goes higher. Norco works within an hour and lessens the pain to a to such a degree that I am able to function fairly well.
Did nothing for pain except make me nauseated. I’ve been taking Norco for years never had an issue. have to be reformulated and are no good
People, do not complain here, no one is reading this. Rather, please send via FAX or online to FDA dot gov backslash MEDWATCH. Fill out Medwatch 3500B form with your experience. If the FDA does not receive these comments, they are doing nothing. YOU MUST TAKE ACTION fill out the form to the FDA! This product is NOT AB rated, therefore it has no reference brand to compare, it is a sugar pill at best, The FDA has to be notified. To date I am the only one who submitted a form and they laughed at me!!!Read More Read Less
Was prescribed this after an outpatient surgery for wide excision on my leg( early skin cancer). I had every side effect. For me, I would rather deal with the acute pain I am having than the side effects. Dizziness, drowsiness, nausea and vomiting was the worst.
