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....

ip 10 325 norco vs 36 01 v
Hi: I have been taking 36 01 v generic norco by Qualitest for a couple years now, due to a long list of pain issues. Since the Fed Law has been changed and I can no longer get refills on my prescription, I was also informed by my pharmacy they no longer carry the yellow 36 01 v and wanted to give me ip110. I finally found a pharmacy that had 70 of the yellow and gave me 20 of the white ip110. I find the white ip110 does not work well at all. I felt them a little faster but they are not as string and wear off very quickly, unless I double up on it. Why have all pharmacies stopped carrying the yellow 36 01 v? Also is there a difference with hydrocordone Bitartrate? I took white ones a few years ago (1 a day though was 3x's a day) and it gave me heart palpitations. So of course I'm...

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...

pill 5 325
I can't find where I can get this prescription filled in the Boynton beach area do you know who had this in stock ## Hello, Gail! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. Which medication, Norco or Percocet? 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. And would that be Boynton Beach in Florida? Since this website is open to everyone worldwide, it's best to be specific, in order to get help with your problem. Can you please post back and clarify? Thank you!

fill my norco 10 325 in jacksonville florida
cant find any pharmacies in 32097 who have norco 10/325. do you no where to get it? ## Having the same problem. It's the whole state not just Jacksonville. They're saying it will hopefully not be an issue starting November. Who knows. I'm having to go days without my medication because of this. I just pray it comes in ASAP. ## Hello i wanted to know if you had any luck. My mother has bone disease and she really need her norco 10s. Thank you ## I'd actually advise everyone to not get their hopes up for November, either. From what's been said, it seems the shortage started due to relabeling, since this medication was changed to a schedule 2 at the beginning of this month, but we are also into the time of year where there is almost always a shortage of most controlled s...

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 prescription question
I received 2 scripts from my doc, both are wrote the exact same, Norco 10/325 with the exact same dosage and quantity, but I read that the second one, the doc has to write "do not fill til" on it and he didn't, what does that mean? Is it no good now or I should have filled them both at the same time?

Can't fill my norco?!?
i had a really bad shoulder dislocation and am in chronic pain constantly. Doctor perscribed me norco. Went in to get my refill only to find out they won't honor refills. They say I have to go back to the doctor and get a new script. It's Sunday and the office is closed and I doubt he will be able to see me Monday. What should I do? ## If the prescription was written before the new law was in place, another pharmacy might honor it and fill it. They are allowed to do so. 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. Otherwise the only thing you can do is wait until your doctor is back in his office. Does anyone else have any advice or ideas?

norco white or yellow
Ok, I don't care what people say, pharmacy or manufacturer, the yellow norcos are stronger and work different. It is getting extremely more and more difficult to find the yellow norcos. From what I can tell, the major pharmacy's, ie: WalMart, cvs, Walgreens, target, etc, all have either the plain white ones, it the white ones with reddish/pinkish dots on them, and the smaller mom and pop(good neighborhood pharmacy's) have the yellow. Last month I filled mine at target, got the white oblong norcos (10/325). Today, I filled mine at a small good neighborhood pharmacy in Ontario, California, name available upon request, and I got the yellow Watson Norco. Again, huge difference. I don't think they quit making them, I just think that when buying in bulk as a large pharmacy doe...
