Fusion surgery pain management

Had back fusion surgery. Only 6 weeks of low dose norco. Ended up with nerve pain in my foot (zapping shocks that will take the strongest person down). Ortho doc said It would go away possibly in 6 weeks, maybe longer. Ortho surgeon they will never give anyone any opioids past 6 weeks no matter what. He tells me to go to pain management but he does not recommend or refer for any one of his patients to a pain management clinic. Says he does not want the responsibility of that. Truth is he doesn't want docs asking why he give very little pain meds or have his patients being referred back to him. He said to go to my regular doc. So I did see my regular doc and they said I have to go back to my surgeon as it's his responsibility. One time the pain was so bad I went to ER, they said ...

Watson 853 White Pill

I have always taken the Watson 853 yellow pill and for some reason I was just given Watson 853 white pills. What is going on? Why the color difference? ## It seems from other posts made on here recently that Watson is just removing the dyes from some of their products. There have been some complaints from people that have had sensitivity or allergic reactions to them, so they have been doing away with them. However, as long as the imprint is the same and your pharmacy has listed it as being the same medication and the same dosage, then you shouldn't have any reason to worry. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Not the same for sure! ## I have experienced poor results with the white pills. If they are different and labelled the same then walgreens is liable for damages! ## ...

is this g 037 the same as watson norco

Just wondering if the g037 is the same as Watson 10/325. Are they gonna have the same effect as them? ## Yes, this tablet is manufactured by Tris Pharma and they list it as containing 325mgs of Acetaminophen and 10mgs of Hydrocodone. The FDA classifies this medication as 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? ## A white oval pill G037 what is it's strength is it like a 500mg vicoden or 750 mg vicoden ## If Norco and Loratab the same then why do the have different names? ## Which pharmacy should I go to if I need to fill my prescriptions for hydrocodone 10/325? I go to Walgreens now but I found that CVS is cheaper, but I wou...

Norco Shortage in Pharmacies in Michigan (November, 2014)

I have a fractured rib and chronic lower back pain and have been on Norco for a year (7.5-325). I have been switched to Tramadol since this recent shortage. I have not been able to find any pharmacy in the Detroit area that can fill my Norco prescription. I have read that it has been gone to a controlled substance level II, and that they had to relabel everything. I called the manufacturers, and they said that they had relabeled everything, so that wasn't the issue. Then I was told that the pharmacies have to do a ton of paperwork to receive it now. Each pharmacy says they keep ordering, and they keep not getting in shipments. I am really just wondering if anyone knows when pharmacies will be back in stock (or if anyone knows of a particular pharmacy in the detroit area that carries...

Norco 10 3 25 Vs Percocet

I've been taking Norco 10/3.25 for years for severe chronic pain--It's now no longer effective at all--I'm wondering about changing to Percocet 10/3.25 and whether this would be a stronger, more effective and longer lasting med to take--I've tried also Oxy.10 mg. hcl and they work so so and notice I need to take way more often than I ever did with Norco. I don't want to go this route at all!! I'm hoping the Percocet would change all this. Does it? ## I personally was in the same situation as you and I changed from Norco to percocet 10 325. It's much more effective then the Norco was but they have the same time frames. I sampled for a while 15 milligram oxycodones and didn't like those because there is no acetaminophen. I'm glad I made the change 2 per...

white watson norco by actavis

The new white Norco by Actavis does not work as well as the Yellow Norco by Watson did. With these white ones I also experience the same bad side effect as other generic Norco which is severe migraine headaches. At times I forego taking the pain meds out of fear for the migraine I know that will follow. Actavis obviously changed the formula. Does anyone have an idea what inactive ingredient could cause the migraines? ## Hello, Heidi! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. It's difficult to say, since everyone is different, so trying to figure out what's causing you the problem would be guess work. It might be due to the medication, itself. Headaches are a possible side effect of narcotics, in some people that take them. It is listed in the databases...

Blue Norco WES 303

Anyone have these new Norco by EYWA marked "WES 303"? ## Blue capsule shaped pill with imprint WES 303 contains Acetaminophen 325 mg / Hydrocodone bitartrate 10 mg from Eywa Pharma Inc. (NDC 71930-021) Inactive Ingredients: - Croscarmellose Sodium - Silicon Dioxide - Magnesium Stearate - Cellulose, Microcrystalline - FD&C Yellow No. 6 Source: DailyMed ## Nope... I miss norco. I only get Alprazolam, Adderall, and Subutex now. ## yes. Thank u . I know what it is and about it . However, to make it clearer... does anyone take it and if so how does it work for u compared to the other brands? ## Never heard of or seen those before. ## I get adderall Xanax and subutex too and would take subutex over any pain killer any day cuz subs have a ceiling level where it’s a waste if y...

Need Doctor. West Subs of Chicago-I take Norco 10/325's for PAIN

Can anybody recommend a pain management practice near Aurora IL to treat back injuries? The challenge is that many non narcotic medications have not been working well for me and I do not feel good from drugs like Lyrica. I would ideally like a clinic where they would be willing to review my medical history in full and prescribe an appropriate treatment. ## One difficulty you may be creating for yourself is by trying to insist on a certain narcotic medication. Many doctors see this as drug seeking behavior. It is actually much better to let your medical records speak for you, whenever you see a new doctor, that way they can see what has been documented by other doctors and they are more likely to take that under consideration. Therefore, you should always make sure to take a copy of your...

Norco by Allergan

As I wrote in another thread, the pharmacies are not getting real Norco. I used to get Watson by Actavis or Norco by Allergan! My last Rx was generic by Mallinckrodt. And it is junk weak and does no good for pain. I was getting Norco by Allergan and it as 100 percent best. This company was purchased by AbbVie and Allergan separated. And when I sent an email to them they replied Norco was stopped December 2020. I also asked them if they were going to make any thing that would equal Norco. Never got an answer! So you people in pain for years or need stronger drugs, you are not getting it. All we get is generic and half the pain. I was paying 50.00 copay and was getting my Norco! Now I am getting some junk generic by Mallinckrodt! All junk. You have to double up your pill for any treatment...

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. I have gotten these the last few months ## I found this "n 358 10" white oval pill in my son's backpack. What is it? I'm concerned if he's doing drugs or whatever this pill is. ## Its a Lortab!

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....

Anneal Norco Generic Hydrocodone

I have experienced many generic brands, including Watson and Qualitest. My pharmacy just changed to the Amneal brand 10-325 hydrocodone/APAP. I am just not sure what to think about this. The pills have an IP on them. What have been the experiences of others taking this specific generic brand? ## Because these drugs can affect each individual differently, my opinion is that trial and error through one's own personal experience is the only way to accurately judge the efficacy of a specific tablet. On the other hand, I do get the sense that some brands/generics are manufactured with less quality inactive ingredients than others, potentially making them more prone to cause side effects or placebo-like responses from varying degrees of bioavailability. I haven't taken the Amneal bran...

White oblong pill n356 5

I have a few pills that were claimed to be Norco, but I've never seen them before and I'm having a very tough time identifying them online. The pill is oblong but thicker than a normal Norco. The pill is scored on the front and marked n/356 and 5 on the back. Please help! ## Did you ever get an answer? I came across the same exact situation. Can't figure out what it is though ## That is correct. This tablet is manufactured by Novel Laboratories and they list it as containing 5mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen, it is a generic for Norco. The FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, constipation, and headache.

Clinics or doctors that will prescribe pain meds in Texas?

Clinics or doctors that will prescribe pain meds in Texas? My doctor retired and I'm having a hard time finding a doctor or clinic. If someone could please help me!? Thank you. ## I have lived in Texas for 15 years. I lost both of my legs, 1 of them 6 years ago, the other 3 years ago. My doctor is great. I was on 180 30 mg.

Sacramento/Roseville Ca primary doctor?

I am looking for a Primary Care doctor who will prescribe Norco in the Sacramento area. I don't take them often, just when the pain becomes too intense. My doctor stopped prescribing them, sends his patients to Pain Management. I am taking expired pills and they work well, but eventually I will run out of them. Thank you. ## The only thing you can really do is set up an appointment with a new doctor, make sure they receive a copy of your medical records, and talk to them about the issue, in person, at your appointment. However, do not ask about a controlled substance over the phone, via text message, email, or etc. Doing so can be seen a being drug seeking behavior, and most doctors will just say no, and refuse to see you. The FDA warns that Norco carries the risk of being habit for...

What is a white oblong pill imprinted WATSON 325 with a line in center of back

What is a white oblong pill imprinted WATSON 325 with a line in the middle of the back? ## yellow oblong pill with watson 10/325 line on other side ## In regards to the original post, that tablet has been asked about several times and I'm sorry, but at this time I am still unable to find an identification. It may be due to the late time that I am seeing these posts, it could've been something that has been removed from the market in the intervening years and is no longer available. However, I will keep looking and post an update, if I find anything on it. As to the bottom tablet with the WATSON 10/325 marking, I am actually not 100% certain, since I can't find anything in the various databases to confirm it, but these are reported to be an equivalent to Norco from a foreign ...

Differences in Norco, Percocet and Lortab

What is the difference between Norco, Percocet and Lortab? I have a script for all three. I have cancer and wondered which one is the strongest. I don't need all three pain meds if one is better than the other. Thank you. ## Hey CLM, the Norco and Lortab both contain the active ingredient hydrocodeine so basically the same medicine just different brand name. Unless they are a different dose 5/325 vs 10/325 then they are the exact same medication. Percocet contains oxycodone as the active narcotic and is stronger than the other two you mentioned. One may work better than the other for you personally but Percocet is the stronger of them. I hope this helps and the best of luck! ## Sorry for the typo, norco and lortab contain hydrocodone ## Lortab, and Norco both contain Acetaminophen, ...

More Norco shortages in MI, what is happening?

I've taken pain meds for over 10 years, two years ago the doctor upped my script a bit from Vicodin 7.5/750 (d/day) to Norco 10/325 (3/day) but then last October I couldn't find the 10's anywhere (I prefer to get all my scripts from one pharmacy, a mom & pop shop I've been going to for almost 20 years). So kindly the doc switched me to Norco 7.5/350 (4/day) based on my pharmacy's suggestion. Now the pharmacy has been out for a week! I have no idea when my script will get filled and went to another pharmacy to ask an the said they aren't taking on new pain customers. I offered to transfer all my scripts there, only one is for pain but they still said no. Now what? Is there a shortage again in the Warren/Ferndale area of MI or is this happening across the count...

I was so sick of taking so much medication I just had to do something....
