Doctors Willing To Prescribe Pain Meds In Orange County Ca
I am 50 and work a hard labor job for 25 years. I am in chronic pain constantly. I want a better quality of life and to continue to work. I need a Doctor in Orange County, CA that can prescribe Norco for my pain. ## The main issue here may be due to the fact that you're asking for/looking for, a specific pain medication, especially one that contains a narcotic. Many doctors will see that as drug seeking behavior, it is something they are taught to watch out for in new patients. The best thing you can do is to see a new doctor and make sure that they receive a full copy of your medical records, so your records can speak for themselves. A doctor will be more likely to follow the information and prescribing practices of their fellow physicians. Does anyone know a good doctor in the are...

m366 vs V 36 05
I have been taking Norco light orange, V 36 05, now I was given Norco white M366, which has a better reputation for pain relief? ## Hello, Pay! How are you? Both contains 7.5mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen. 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. It really comes down to which one works best for you. Have you tried the new ones, yet? How are they working?

All Hydrocodone Combination medications will become a Schedule II meds Oct. 6, 2014. ## Hello, BL! How are you? Thank you for the very helpful post. It is correct. I recently received the notice about it. That means no more refills and its use will be much more strictly regulated. 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. Does anyone have any questions about this change?

She showed me the pills the pills and the imprint was 126, wht, scored in the back, oblong. I checked on the Internet and it all said, she's getting 5/325, but bottle said 10/325? Is this an error? ## Hello, ChubbyZ! How are you? It seems that there is an error somewhere, because you are correct on the dosage. However, I can't speak as to whether the pharmacy dispensed the wrong pills, or if they just misprinted the label on the prescription bottle. She'd need to get in touch with them to check. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effect...

Possibly sensitivity allergic reaction from the new norco generic marked UO2
My pharmacy is a Ma and Pa's that I've been going to for over seven years now.. They don't have very much business so they have a lot of medications still on the shelves that they no longer sold do to the change in the dosage of the Acetephtme in Vicodin ... this month they gave me the generic form of my Norco's 7.5/325, by AUROBINDO pharmaceuticals. normally I get the yellow norcos and will ask the pharmacist to make sure to give me those ones due to my sensitivity of the new off-the-wall generic meds that give me withdrawal symptoms and migraines and on the toilet constantly!! The pharmacist told me that I was ""hypersensitive"" to the non inactive ingredients... such is the glue that holds the medicine together... but at the time he did not have my nor...

i need a pain management doctor in the Dayton/Cincinnat Ohio area who will prescribe Norco or some type of med like that.
I have had 4 series of 3 injections in my back which did NOT help at all as well as surgery (two hemi discectomies in my lower back) which helped my sciatica but now it's coming back and my surgeon says he can't do any more surgery. I've had a trial of a spinal cord stimulator which didn't help at all and I have a tens unit. I have fibromyalgia, arthritis, lower back pain and worsening sciatica. I've been taking Norco 10/325 and Neurontin which helps the most, but my family doctor wants me to find a pain management doctor to prescribe these meds now. I am 53. Does anyone know of a good physician who is not afraid to prescribe these medications in this area. Any help is appreciated. Thank you. ## Hello, Beth! How are you? Due to the new regulations that were put in pl...

Watson is now actavis norco
My pharmacist that I have known for years due to chronic pain from cancer/severe spinal injuries and a totaled knee, told me last week that it is the DEA that has created the change in ALL pain meds. I have been on Watson Norco for 10 years and now I am in severe withdrawal with actavis buying out Watson. It is unbearable and my pharmacist said that people will DIE because of not being forewarned or informed ahead of time. This is all due to the people that use the drugs for getting high. Sniffing, smoking and whatever else they do has ruined it for us real patients. We all know the DEA is like God and they don't even care about us real patients that have medical records, etc. I have been suffering for over a month now and my pain doc is on extended vacation. Thank goodness for my p...

Need Doctor. West Subs of Chicago-I take Norco 10/325's for PAIN
I live in near Aurora, IL. west suburbs of Chicago PLEASE SOMEONE HAS TO KNOW A DR. AROUND AURORA, IL OR W/IN 10 MILES OR SO THAT WILL PRESCRIBE THE PAIN MEDS I NEED. I'VE TRIED AT LEAST 7 OR 8 DIFFERENT MEDS. THE NORCO10'S OR EVEN STRONGER (FEWER PER DAY) WORK PERFECT, NO SIDE EFFECTS. I'VE TRIED ALL THE OTHER NON NARCOTIC AND THEY DO NOT WORK OR I FEEL LIKE A WACK FROM DRUGS LIKE LYRICA. I don't want to be treated like some drug addict...JUST LOOK AT THE MRI FROM LAST WEEK. ## The plethora of posts really wasn't necessary and, if you type in all caps online, it is equivalent to shouting and you won't get many responses. Now, as to your situation. One difficulty you may be creating for yourself is by trying to insist on a certain narcotic medication. Many doctor...

Strength of OP 20 round pink vs 10 MG NORCO
How does this compare (strength wise) to the Norco 10mg/325? I was taking those one per four hours? ## Hello, Katy! How are you? The Oxycodone is stronger, but since it's time released and you aren't taking it as often, you're probably looking at about an equivalent level of pain relief. 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 anything else I can help with?
