Norco Shortage in Pharmacies in Michigan (November, 2014)
I have a fractured rib and chronic lower back pain and have been on Norco for a year (7.5-325). I have been switched to Tramadol since this recent shortage. I have not been able to find any pharmacy in the Detroit area that can fill my Norco prescription. I have read that it has been gone to a controlled substance level II, and that they had to relabel everything. I called the manufacturers, and they said that they had relabeled everything, so that wasn't the issue. Then I was told that the pharmacies have to do a ton of paperwork to receive it now. Each pharmacy says they keep ordering, and they keep not getting in shipments. I am really just wondering if anyone knows when pharmacies will be back in stock (or if anyone knows of a particular pharmacy in the detroit area that carries...

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....

half white pill oblong
half white pill oblong marked with a number 10 ## Hi Tami, Comparing several images, I have a good guess that it may be a white oblong pill marked with IP 110 on one side and scored on the other. If I'm seeing this correctly, when you split the tablet in half there would be one half with IP 1 and the other half would just have the number 10 on it. It's reported to be identified as a 10/325 generic Norco pill, made by Amneal Pharma. But maybe you could also look up the IP 110 imprint in order to help draw a conclusion on whether this is it or not?

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 ...

Generic Norco m367 10/325
Is crap. I have to take three at a time for 1 hour of pain releif. 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. You ...

where can i fill my prescription norco 10 325 i am in long beach Ca
I am in long beach, Ca where can i get my prescription filled norco 10-325 ive tried almost everywhere ## Hello, Walter! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem that you're having. However, we are now into the time of year when shortages of controlled substances usually occur due to mandatory manufacturing limits. Once a manufacturer reaches their allotted yearly limit, they cannot manufacture any new product, until after the new year. Each year, demand inevitably exceeds supply and shortages occur for the last few months. 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. The best suggestion I can make is to ask your regular pharmacy what they do have in s...

I know that's crap but I'm in pain and need something for relief until this ish pass on by. ## Hello, do anyone know a pharmacy in the Detroit area that has 7.5/325 norco's in stock ## Called the manufacturer and they said that they were shipping to all wholesalers in Michigan.

half white pill oblong u
It looks to be a slightly larger, oblong white pill, broken in half with only an imprint of the letter U showing ## Hi Shauna, From what I can tell, the closest thing I'm seeing as far as a possible match is concerned, is a white oblong shaped pill marked with "U 0 3" on one side and scored on the other. If this is the correct pill you'd probably also be able to see half of a "0" to the right of the "U". This one in particular is a generic Norco 10/325 tablet. However there are other white pills I'm seeing which have a "U" on one half of the tablet (being divided by a score line); whereas if you were to break it in half you'd only see a "U" and nothing else.... they are just oval shaped and not necessarily elongated AND oval so I w...

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...
