If anybody has info on a pharmacy please post as i will do if im lucky ## I've been to pharmacy all of the Detroit area and future out no one has them.every pharmacy has a different story.

There are mandatory manufacturing limits to help keep better track of the supply and once a company reaches that limit, they can not manufacture anymore, until the new year. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and ...

Norco Shortage in Michigan
Is anyone else having problems finding a pharmacy to fill their scripts of Norco? I have been taking them for a few years now for my chronic pain. I always go to the same pharmacy chain, and its always the same doctor who writes my scripts, but since the new law change no one seems to have them in stock. Some pharmacists told me it was a manufacturer back order. We are told not to go without our meds, but yet how is that possible if we can't get them? Anyone knows of a pharmacy that has Norco 10/325 in the metro Detroit area? ## Dear Painfully Annoyed, Yes, this appears to be a huge problem at the moment. I have called every pharmacy in my insurance plan and everyone says the same thing. Your not alone, I was told it is a repackaging issue with the manufacturers due to the new laws....

finding a pharmacy in las vegas with norco 10 325 stock
Where can i get my prescription norco 10/325 filled in las vegas nevada? ## having trouble finding a pharmacy that has NorCo in stock ## Got me, CVS has been sitting on my Rx for 1 week. Can't or won't say when it gets in also may not get 7.5mg/325's ## I'm sorry that you are all having a problem getting your prescriptions filled. On top of all the other changes that happened this year, we are also now into the time of year when there is almost always a shortage of controlled substances due to mandatory manufacturing limits. Once a company has manufactured their allowed amount of the year, they must cease production until the new year. So far, I've not known of a single year where demand hasn't exceeded the supply and a shortage happened the last few months of th...

Qualitiest Norco CVS in San Diego October 2014
The CVS wont fill in Encinitas anymore. CVS, Walgreens and Walmart have company restrictions. No more orders until this State of California decision is changed or further notice. Even Pharmaca will only sell the spotted Activis Watson-and Allen pharmacy in San Diego won't special order them. Any other thoughts? I'm 3 days without and no one will fill my new rx. ## Hello, Sara! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. On top of the shortage that had already been created due to the dosage changes that were made this year, which caused some companies to stop manufacturing this medication, we are also into the end of the year and there is almost always a shortage from October into early in the new year. This is due to mandatory manufacturing limits, once ...

watson 853 white pill / shinier smaller pill
I have been taking norco 10/325 and the pills say watson 853 for some reason the last ones I got where a smaller version and looked shiny compared to my older ones that were a little bigger and more dull looking with a chalky film left in the bottle these new ones that are shiny don't have that chalky film to them and the imprint looks a little different as well. It is not something u would really notice without really looking at them or having one to compare it to. Would these be some kind of fake pill or geneic version. Just curious? ## Hello, Just out of curiosity, did you order these off the internet from one of those overseas pharmacies in India? If you had got them from a legitimate retail pharmacy here in the US I don't see why you'd even have anything to be concerned...

norco 80mgs daily and ambien 20mgs nightly along with 2400 mg ibuprofen daily tuned out to be a lethal combination for me i took the combo 5 days
Just an FYI. I woke up in the hospital on a respirator after my teenage son found me. This was not intentional. I developed pneumonia. Oh! I woke up deaf. I couldn't hear for two days. My kidneys failed and I was on dialysis for 8 weeks. My overall hospital stay was almost four weeks. My family noticed a marked difference in my personality. Two years later I'm finally more like myself. I still take my pain meds, I developed an allergy to ambien and was told to never take any kind of anti inflammatory again! IMO most OD's are combos. I have what the street calls the trinity. Hydro, sometimes Oxy, muscle relaxers, and two different benzo's. Scares me that one day my body will say, "Nope, no more" and I will wake up in the hospital again or die. My back pain is debi...

norco m367
How many can I take in 6 hours? ## Is anyone available to avert my question on here??? How many 367 tabs can I take in 6 hours?? ## Hello, Angie! How are you? I'm very sorry for the delay in responding. Due to construction nearby, our power lines were accidentally cut and down here for most of the weekend, so I was unable to be online. You should follow your doctor's dosing instructions, but that shouldn't exceed 2 tablets in 6 to 8 hours. The Acetaminophen can be toxic, if you take too much of it, at once. Such toxicity could result in liver damage or failure, which has the potential to be fatal. This is 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. Is there an...

Can Norco EQ 5/325 mg and Motrin EQ 800mg be taken at the same time or do I need to space them apart?
I just had eye surgery and was given Norco (4x a day) and Motrin (3x a day) to take for pain, can I take them at the same time or do I need to space them out? ## Hi Chris, Hope you're recovering well from the surgery. From what I could gather, there are no drug interactions listed between Norco (acetaminophen + hydrocodone) and Motrin (ibuprofen). So I don't see why it wouldn't be ok to take them both together if that's what you need to do in order to achieve adequate pain relief. Also as long as it's the same doctor who prescribed both, I think that he/she would've informed you up front of any possible risks involved with doing so if there really were serious consequences to be had. I hope this helps!

pictures of generic norco 10 325
maker of oval shaped white Norco imprint lp 110 please? ## Hi alancat, To answer your question, Amneal Pharmaceuticals is the name of the company who produces "IP 110" generic Norco 10/325 tablets; used for moderate to severe pain. The pill is described as being a white oblong-shaped tablet with a score line going down the center on one side and IP 110 on the other. This can all be verified by looking at the manufacturer's product catalog at:; where you'll also notice a photograph of the tablet on the top right part of the page. I hope this helps!

yellow norco 10 325 advise
I have been reading this BBs discussed w/ numerous pharmacists some understand and others just nod but nowhere is it not known or been said the yellow beats the white even when made by the same company. I believe this from first hand experience. It no longer matters to me if I simply have an affinity for yellow or colored pills in general. Yellow is good, if the pills are the same defunety I will take the small yellow Norco 10/325 (x2) rather than a handful of the white ones. Is that simple enough? The company needs to know yellow = great, white = bad and do whatever they have been doing change nothing. It is ridiculous to stress chronic pain patience over 1 part per million or some $00.02 die per 1000 pills or more just go with what works please. Put a V in it and make it tight with a sco
