10/325 Norco liberal Doctor in the south bay cities of California
2 Replies RSS
I have been taking Norco 10/325 for.a few years and it has controlled my severe pain. My physician is starting to prescribe me medication that just simply doesn't work. Please.....If anyone knows of a very liberal Doctor in Los angeles, Ca. More.the south bay area: Torrance, Redondo Beach, Gardena etc. Etc. Please let me know!!! Would be very much appreciated ## Since Norco, along with other hydrocodone combination meds, will become a Schedule II Oct 6, 2014, finding a liberal dr will be impossible. Many drs who use to write for this have stopped due to the new tigher regulations that will be in place in less than 2 weeks. ## Look under Pain Management Dr.s on the Internet or a phone book. Be sure you know what generic drug brand works for you. You may need to ask any Dr. you find i...

Norco 10/325 by Caraco
1 Reply RSS
I was forced into taking Caraco Norco. This cheap manufacturer should be banned. Mallinkrodt lasted all 6 hours. Caraco when there was some relief with 2 pills lasted only 3 hours. This is how patients O.D. How do we get this ineffective brand banned? Can we get a legal case going against pharmacies for pushing ineffective meds? We have to pay for these meds, we are patients suffering and should be able to trust our medication is good quality. This has to stop. ## The whole premise behind brand vs generic is when the patent runs out for brand a generic is made by the same or another company . The absolute rule from the beginning of generic's is that the are suppose to be exactly equivalent to the brand name. Something extremely dangerous is happening with what some of the cheap comp...

New white Watson 853 10/325 problem - What is going on???!?
16 Replies RSS
Hello all, I am a longtime chronic pain sufferer. I have taken opiates for pain for over 10 years. I recently got a prescription filled (from a well known pharmacy chain in the U.S.) and I was given these new Watson 853 white (not yellow) hydro 10/325 pills. I wanted to ask the forum here if any of you have had the same experience with them as I have. I know there are some very smart people with advanced chemistry knowledge here that may have delved deeper into whats going on with these things. They are ineffective for me. I've taken hydrocodone 10/325 for 10+ years and have never ever had a problem with pills being ineffective but that is the case with these pills. I've had about every brand you can think of and never an issue. Ever. I thought nothing of the color change when I...

Generic Norco m367 10/325
182 Replies RSS
Is no good. I have to take three at a time for 1 hour of pain relief. 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. Y...

Norco, take 2, 7 5 mg tabs a day
Post a Reply
I was in a bad accident 13 years ago and broke a lot of bones, some badly. A lot of them are displaced and never healed back together. There are like 24 fractures including pelvic fractures and scapula. They move, pop, stick out and my collar-bone bends in the middle where a non union bone is. Even with 2 norco 7.5 325 I haven't been able to sleep on my back since the wreck. I take one in the late morning and one in the evening. I go 18-19 hours every day intentionally between evening and morning dose. I am feeling pretty rough by then. Is that withdrawals I'm having? I have always taken less than prescribed and been at 2 a day for a long time, years. I have never abused it and never felt high from it, only less pain but not gone. Have always had a prescription for it. I'm havi

Please help!! Norco refill 2 times in a row!! Asking insurance
36 Replies RSS
Please help!! I am new to this site, this is my first time posting on anything like this. I will be blunt and right to the point! Every month I get 120 Norcos, I have Blue Cross and Blue Shield insurance, I live in Michigan! Can I get two early refills back-to-back if I call my insurance company and explain the situation!? We're going out of the country on the 12th and won't be back in till next month and I will definitely be on my medicine by then! But the only problem is I just got a refill last month on the 27th! And last month I called my insurance and got it filled 12 days early because I left on vacation out of country! So now I'm just wondering if I can do this two times in a row? And just pay out-of-pocket!? Or can I go to another pharmacy and say that I don't ha...

White Watson 10mg 325 #853
311 Replies RSS
I just recieved a new prescription of norco 853 10/325. The last script was yellow and the new ones are white. The pharmacist said that Watson changed the color but the pill is the same, does anyone know if this is accurate ## Watson has change a few different medications and the colors are different. But the Norco you're referring to is the same medication that you were prescribed prior. It is just as effective as the script you had filled before this one and it's a good thing that you ask the pharmacist, the pharmacist is correct. ## LuLu is correct and so was your pharmacist. There have been several posts on here recently about various Watson tablets being white now. It seems that some people were sensitive or allergic to the dyes they were using, thus they decided to do away...

yellow norco 10 325
36 Replies RSS
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...

10/325 quailiest Verses Watson Verses white or yellow (BRAND NAME NORCO)
36 Replies RSS
Hello Hydrophone world: My experience is this. You can not beat Name Brand scored> NORCO 10/325 . However, my experience is Watson is a softer compound, & works faster. Now, the other generic NORCO 10/325 (36 01) scored other side. This is made by QUAILITEST: many people say they suck, because in fact, it is a harder compound to digest/desolve, therefore not getting a good feeling,but the slight slower release makes Quailiest (NORCO) actually kill the pain more so than Watson (GENERIC) 10/325. The watson have the edge, however the Qualitiest last longer & are so dang close, only a Dog may know the difference. Personally me, & all the 4 companies that make generic NORCO can stick it. Your/My Dr. is going to request the yellow dye, I do get allergic reactions minor,but eno...
