Norco is the brand name by Watson for 10mg Hydrocodone and 325mg of acetaminophen, they also make the generic. Norco is yellow in color and caplet shaped.Originally it was only 10mg, now it's 7.5 and 5, hydrocodone and the same Tylenol in all. Has no codiene in it. Hydrocodone is a semi synthetic drug, a ketone of codeine and is 8 times stronger than codiene, mg to mg.has a more sedative effect and has a half life of 3.8 hrs compared to codiene's 2.5 hrs.

I've been taking Norco, 10-325, for over fifteen years on an occasional basis because of back pain due to auto accidents, surgeries. I take the same ammount now as fifteen years ago. I alternate between Norco, and Tylenol - also on an occasional basis, so I don't develop a tolerance to N. and have to increase the dosage to produce the same effect. I have a yearly treadmill with cardiolite, and at 75, seem to be doing well. I've been in gyms since 1957 and don't smoke (except an occasional small cigar, which I don't inhale) drink an occasional cocktail, and don't eat junk food, sleep like a large rock, and I've been with the love of my life for twenty-seven years. Should I be concerned?

No, you sound like your doing fine. My doctor said " The reason for giving you pain meds is so you can continue to live your life and keep doing your things you enjoy in life" I thought that was a good explanation, short and sweet. You take it like your suppose to, and you don't go out a "drug seek". I take hydomorphone 4mg 4 times a day for over a year, I don't desire to try to get more than I'm prescribed or rise the dose. I did at first have to watch myself when I was taking Norco,
wanting to take more than prescribed. I did at first with Diluadid, but that desire went away after many months, snd now I'm just fine. Good job, because it's a hard thing to do, not rise your dose when taking opiates. Pat your self on your back.

I agree with Carl, that you sound like your doing great for your age. Not many people are able to keep themselves on track the way you did when it comes to taking opiates. If anything, you deserve some sort of award for doing it right Terry.

Jumping a bit off-topic here, but have either of you read the article about a natural pain killer found in human saliva? Apparently it's being compared to the strength of Morphine and it's something we produce naturally. There's an article on it in the link below if your interested:

Not sure if this means you should spit on your wounds, but I thought you'd find it an interesting read, being on the discussion of pain medication.

Norco, has 325mg APAP, Tylenol, more people are dying from Tylenol overdose than narcotics, that by 2014 prescription meds can't have more than 325mg, some have 750mg, if your taking 1 Vicodin EX and taking large doses of Tylenol also could be dangerous because of Tylenol, try ibuprofen. Norco is only 325mg the smallest, and 20 mg isn't going to hurt you, if you have been taking 10mg of hydrocodone bitrate. The only concern is once you start the increase, beware, see why you need more than 5 years ago.

I am in the hospital with meningitis, I am taking norco for pain and am just wondering how long until it takes effect. I just started out with one and it hasn't seemed to fully knock out this aweful headache.
