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....

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...

yellow norco v 3601
What is the difference in the white oblonged pill with m367 and the yellow with a v an d 3601. ## The only difference between these two tablets is that they are manufactured by different companies. The one with the M marking is manufactured by Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals and the one with the V is manufactured by Vintage/Qualitest. 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. But both are the same dosage and contain 10mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Verwon, Your wrong. It's very apparent that you are not taking these pills, and/or you have never had a long standing chronic pain problem, and had to go fr...

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...

yellow norco 10 325
What the heck, guys?!?!? I've been prescribed the yellow, oblong Norcos 10/325 for years and years now (several different illnesses\conditions). All of a sudden I went to CVS and the pills they gave me were more or less, useless! They were white and smaller. They don't do crap to help me pain!!!! This sucks! I called CVS and they said that the FDA passed a law stating no more "Norco" could be sold due to the rampant over-abuse. Great. Thanks a lot for those of us who really, genuinely needed that ONE MED that really actually worked and helped!!!!!! Because of f'ing pill-poppers and sellers, I can no longer get the one and only medication that helped me. This sucks. It's wrong. Really wrong. I don't take them to get any high. I take them to make it thru my dam...
