8 norco 10 325 to fentanyl 62.5 patch
2 Replies RSS
Do I put patch on and continue to take my norco till the fentanyl patch gets in to my system at full strength? I take two nor ps 10-325 every 6 hrs and they wear off at 4-5 hrs so pain comes on strong. I've read that it takes 12 to 24 hours for fentanyl to reach its peak so till it kicks it will I be safe to take reg dose of norco? Do not want to go to sleep and not wake up! Scary ## It would be best to be cautious and check with your doctor, before taking the Norco with the patch, since there can be some risk of increased sedation or overdose. However, in most cases it is prescribe that way, the time released patch is meant to control most of your pain, then a regular release medication is prescribed for breakthrough pain. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic,...

Norco, take 2, 7 5 mg tabs a day
2 Replies RSS
I was in a bad accident 13 years ago and broke a lot of bones, some badly. A lot of them are displaced and never healed back together. There are like 24 fractures including pelvic fractures and scapula. They move, pop, stick out and my collar-bone bends in the middle where a non union bone is. Even with 2 norco 7.5 325 I haven't been able to sleep on my back since the wreck. I take one in the late morning and one in the evening. I go 18-19 hours every day intentionally between evening and morning dose. I am feeling pretty rough by then. Is that withdrawals I'm having? I have always taken less than prescribed and been at 2 a day for a long time, years. I have never abused it and never felt high from it, only less pain but not gone. Have always had a prescription for it. I'm h...

Can I take a 10/325 Norco it's been 4 hrs since I took a fiorinal still have horrible migraine ## Hello, Sue! How are you? The Hydrocodone and Butalbital can both increase sedation, which may be risky, so you shouldn't take it that soon afterwards, unless your doctor approves. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Have they both been prescribed for you?

There IS a difference between generic brands of Norco!
1 Reply RSS
I've been taking Norco 10/325 for quite some time and have noticed a MAJOR difference in quality and effectiveness between manufacturers. To me the Mallinckrodt 367 are the most effective all around. Interpharm/Amneal (same company /have merged) IP110 version comes in second for me. Watson seems to be the worst with noticeably much less effectivepain relief and with me seems to act more like a sedative, knocking me out which sucks when you want to be functional/productive. Qualitest is okay but seems to be similar to the Watsons only with less sedation. Personally if the pharmacy doesn't carry Mallinckrodt or Interpharm/Amneal then I won't fill my prescription there. I know this subject has been discussed here many times before but I figure since the recent apparent formula ...

Can I Take Norco And Percocet At The Same Time
4 Replies RSS
I take Norco 5/325 daily for pain.(Scoliosis) I am having a last minute breast augmentation tomorrow & my Dr. prescribed me Percocet 5/325 for the pain. Can I alternate my meds every few hours? I'm sure it should be fine, but just checking. Don't wanna freak either of my doctors out by asking them! ## They are both very potent narcotic analgesics, neither treats any specific condition, just general pain, so you really don't need to take them both, at the same time, only one is necessary. If the surgeon wants you to take the Percocet, then that's most likely the one you should use and it should help with both the surgical and scoliotic pain. You can learn more Percocet details here. Are there any other questions I can help with? ## You should ask your Dr. before takin...

Ha, whoever said Mallinckrodt is better than Qualitest is badly mistaken....The 10mg/325 Norcos by Qualitest are some of the best going....Mallies give people headaches.....I'd give about .50 cents for a 5mg one..... ## The differences people are noticing across one manufacturer to another vary based on so many different factors (i.e. tolerance, age, weight, metabolism, digestive health, mentality, body chemistry, etc) that there is virtually no way to disprove someone's own reasoning / opinion as to why they feel the way they do about one tablet working better or worse than the other. So my thoughts are that whoever said "Mallinckrodt is better than Qualitest" was solely speaking relative to what works for their own body chemistry. I think body chemistry plays a huge ro...

inactive ingredients in norco
1 Reply RSS
Mine are labeled "sub hydrocodone acetate 5/325. They make me very sleepy and never used too. Makes it difficult to go to work on this medication, let alone drive. Thoughts? ## Hello, Kris! How are you? Yes, that means that your prescription was written for Norco and they substituted the generic Hydrocodone with Acetaminophen 5/325mgs. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. What are the markings on them? That is what would enable me to check the inactive ingredients for you. Can you please post back with this additional information? Thanks!

Generic Norco m367 10/325
194 Replies RSS
Is no good. I have to take three at a time for 1 hour of pain relief. Anybody else have this problem with M367 - 10/325 ? ## Recently went to refill my norco script and they gave me M367 10/325 instead of the yellow 10/325. One of the yellow pills would last 4 hours. With the m367 I have to take 3 at a time for 1 hour of pain relief. Let me know if any of you have encountered the same with M367 10/325. Thank you ## I'm sure there are others that have had similar problems, there can be some slight fluctuations from one generic medication to another, so not all of them work well for everyone that tries them. For example, I can take this same tablet and it really hits me very hard, after taking just one, I have good pain relief and am pretty much tired and groggy for most of the day. Y...
