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? ## MAKE LESS......LMBO NOT TRUE.....IT'S A PACKAGING ISSUE AND RELABLEING............. ## No they don't I called and checked ! ## are the yellow ? ## I hear that people who are on narcotic drugs can get a stroke or a heart attack. I don't know how t...

New white Watson 853 10/325 problem - What is going on!?

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...

Mallinckrodt M366 are JUNK!

I have been taking the generic form of Orange Oblong shaped form of Norco which is hydrocodone 7.5 which was working fine until they changed it to a pill with the markings M366. These things are absolutely worthless. Does Mallinckrodt plan on going out of business soon or are they going to remove these from the pharmacies. I'm sending samples of mine to the FDA to see what's wrong with them. ## I've used Qualitest 3605 for years and I agree, the Mallinckrodt M366 are substantially inferior (bio-equivalence) for pain relief. My current Part D insurance uses Walmart Home Delivery. I've called them and complained. ## They do not work. I have been spending most of my time in bed since getting my prescription from Walgreens with mfg Mallinckrodt. I believe that they are place...

pharmacy that carries watson norco

what pharmacys other than walgreens carry the watson brandof norco10/325 ## Hello, Joel! How are you? I'm sorry, but there is no listing of which pharmacies carry a medication from any given manufacturer that I can refer to for you. Have you tried at your other local drug stores? 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. ## HEB carries the yellow Watson brand. They worj very good. ## HEB carries the yellow Watson brand. What is HEB??I love in palm beach florida. For the last 8 years I've been filling my hydrocodone scripts there. We only go to them and pay more because they had the WATSON 853 brand 10/325 Now without any warning they changed them to gene...

Generic Norco m367 10/325

It's 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? Has anyone else noticed that meds from certain manufacturers do not work as well for them? ## 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 tak...

write a prescription for norco? Hydrocodone Apap 7.5/325:40

My patient has recently had two (2) toes removed and he has extreme bad pain in his right foot. If you could help him out and get the right pain medication what would you recommend? ## Ideally, only a qualified physician who's examined the patient in person and reviewed their medical history can make an appropriate judgement call on adequate treatment for something like this. However from a layman's (outside) perspective it would seem that starting off with something mid-level in strength would allow for substantial wiggle room in the dosage and/or type of narcotic analgesic being administered. In my personal opinion based solely off observation (not having had any of my toes removed and can't fathom the amount of pain that might ensue) a moderate dose of hydrocodone appears...

I have a chronic pain issue for over a decade I have had to get new Doctors

I am a widow , & I moved to mid-America& I left a daughter behind. My youngest goes to MSU. I am an Author. I was on Vicodan 10/500 and they changed the laws and now only Norco is possible 10/325.For Chronic Nerve Pain. They had all my records. I Think they were ALL thrown away. The Qualitest Brand has fillers. I requested from my DR. Watson Norco..or NORCO ..not generic. I pay $1000 to a Man who I married in a faze of grief & doesn't do anything for me. I called Watson. They said to either ask my DR. for ONLY the Watson Brand or NORCO. Non Generic which would be $30. I've been getting my Norco , the Watson Brand. & Actually a Neurologist is supposed to be calling. I'm on huge amounts of Nuerontin and FINALLY..my Hepatologist said it was Crap. You Must be You...

white oval pill n 358 10

Found this pill that says n358 on one side and 10 on the other. What is it? I don't know if it is a lortab or not. ## An oval white pill imprinted with "n | 358" on one side and "10" on the other is identified as Hydrocodone bitartrate (10 mg) + Acetaminophen (325 mg); a generic of Norco used for moderate to severe pain relief. Manufacturer: Novel Laboratories Inc. National Drug Code: 40032-0358 Hope this helps! ## Yes it's Norco/lortab 10. I get them from CVS. Put out by novel laboratories.

Is this considered negligence?

Ok I have several things this Dr has done to me over the last 3yrs and also back in 2012-2014. I first saw them in December of 2012. I had just had my 4th child in August and I was 40 yrs old. Their dad left while I was pregnant. I stumbled upon him at the Drs office for my baby, because I was in so much pain and could barely hold and feed him because my arms and hands fell asleep at night and were so numb and burned to the bone. Long story short, they recognized something was obviously wrong with me, so she referred me to a Dr that comes to her office once a month to see Medicaid patients. I made an appt (and mind you I had never been prescribed any pain pills stronger than Norco 10/325's in my life). The specialist put me on those for maybe 2 months, and then Fentanyl patches 50 w...

Norco?

Can anyone offer their experiences with taking Norco or its various generics? How long have you taken it? I have just been prescribed this. ## I have taken Norco and the similar drugs like vicodin for many years. It is helpful for treating moderate pain for short periods. If you take opiate based pain meds for long periods of time you can build up a tolerance and you have to take more to get the same results. I have found taking an anti-imflamitory along with these meds helps to manage the pain. ## Hello, Jim! How are you? And thank you, Renee, for posting such helpful information. Some others things to keep in mind about Norco is that since it is an opiate narcotic, it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth a...

real vs fake norco pill

How can you tell a real 7.5/325 from a fake one? Is there any tests you or your pharmacy could do? Thank you! ## Hello, Arlene! How are you? No, the only way to be sure, if you didn't obtain it from a licensed U.S. pharmacy, would be to pay to have it lab evaluated somewhere. Are there any markings on the tablet in question? That information would enable to check more details on it for you, such as if there are known fakes. The FDA classifies this medication as being 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. ## I've gotten two different ones before that I thought and knew were fake. Including Norco 10/325. I'll write down markings of both. Markings on Norco ...

What pharmacy carries yellow norco 10 325

What pharmacy has yellow norco? I need to fill my prescription. ## Need a pharmacy in sacramento. Ca that carries yellow narcos 10/325 to phiil my percciption ## Hello, Tee! How are you? I'm sorry, but there is no listing of pharmacies according to which medication they carry from which manufacturer. Additionally, saying they are yellow isn't enough for someone to know which ones you're seeking. There is currently a shortage, due to mandatory manufacturing limits, so they may not be in stock at any pharmacy, until after the new year. 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. What are the markings on the ones you're looking for? Can you please pos...

is a pill with TCL 341 a norco

white oblong pill with TCL 341 on it ## Yes this is a painkiller, its very potent so be careful taking it, if you have multiple do not take more than one. I take it and it works very well for me but sometimes I feel its to strong. Its Acetaminophen 500mg. ## Hello, Mickey! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Time-Cap Labs and they list it as containing 500mgs of Acetaminophen. It is available over the counter and is a generic or store brand of Extra Strength Tylenol. Thus, it is not any type of narcotic or controlled substance. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness and headache. Is there anything else I can help with? ## It's a genetic tylonol, Ms Right(sometimes). If that feels to strong to you I would definitely stay away from any a...

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 recreationally; 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 an extended vacation. Thank goodness for my pharmacist at leas...

doctors in Chattanooga TN area who freely give pain medication

I have severe Fibromyalgia and i am hurting non stop 24/7 in my neck, back, legs, and feet. I hurt so bad that the smallest task is so difficult for me to do. I can't function during the day and no matter what sleeping meds I take I can't sleep. The problem is I am 22 and no-one wants to give me much of anything for the pain. And won't take my pain very seriously because of my age. I am not trying to get high. I am DESPERATE for some relief so I can have some quality of life. Can someone please let me know of a doctor in the Chattanooga area or somewhere around there (I am willing to travel a bit) that gives out oxycodon freely? Preferably one that doesn't have to have my doctor request me because I'm afraid he won't because again he doesn't think I'm as ...

Doctors willing to prescribe heavy pain medication in Texas

Hi everyone. I currently suffer from severe chronic pain. I have multiple conditions one of them being chronic renal colic. Another being degeneration of discs in my lower back. I will be moving to Texas next month and need to find a pain management clinic that is compassionate, doesn't treat people like drug seekers when they truly need the help and a doctor who is not super conservative. I need a doctor willing to prescribe any narcotic and prescribes what works for me. Cash only "wellness" clinics are ok for the time being. Informing me of a pain doctor in Fort Worth Dallas Austin Houston or San Antonio is fine. Thanks in advance. ## Were you able to find any specialists to help you with your medication needs? If so, can you please share who? I have a long list of chronic...
