Hi, I'm on pain management & have taken Lortab then Norco for years. Norco is the same as Lortab with 325 mg of acetaminophen instead of 500 mg. My doctor changed mine as well due to the affects on the liver. I understand the hesitation. When he changed mine I wasn't thrilled either, but I'm a creature of habit & dislike change in routines. I'm uncomfortable when my generics are from another company & look different than I normally take. I promise, it's the same 10 mg of hydrocodone.

Both Lortab & Norco contain the same active ingredients: acetaminophen + hydrocodone. And both medications are pain relievers.

The only difference might be a slight effectiveness due to the reduced acetaminophen. Acetaminophen is also a less potent analgesic that intensifies the efficacy of hydrocodone. You shouldn't notice any difference after a few days.

I hope this helps.

My prescription changed from Lortab (generic) 7.50/500 to Norco (generic) 7.5/325. I have felt horrible ever since getting the new meds. I have a back injury and pain from an auto accident. I also have shoulder pain. I take just enough to knock the edge off the pain and most of the time split the two pills I get daily in half for four doses--not to feel druggy. However, with the Norco I feel like all I want to do is sleep. Also, my pain is worse and new pains added. Have been thinking I've had a kidney stone so treating that, but also stomach pains. It may not be a kidney problem at all, but just my back not responding to the new medication. The Norco pills do not seem to help. I also take anti-flammatories occasionally, not necessarily daily. I am thinking it may be the manufacturer. I have discussed the situation with a couple of pharmacists and they think it is all in my head. Considering changing pharmacies if they can get them from a different source.

Well, the only difference is the amount of Tylenol in the pill and the Vicodin is the same. Some generics may vary in strength but not enough to cause the problems you state. Give it time : does the Dr tell you to take half ? Take as directed for best results.

You can no longer get any hydrocodone combined with tylenol with more than 325 mg of tylenol.

I have also been on pain meds for a very long time and never before has pain meds made me tired and left with absolutely no energy to get anything son before.. It use to be I could rake a dose and get my house work done and cook meals and feel great and energized. Now every time I take a for all I want yo do is take a nap and the few times I've had to take an extra dose early due to not getting the relief I'm used to I either have to take a nap or I catch myself literally nodding off and I'm only on the 5/325. There is no way that small of a dose should make me react that way. Something has definitely changed and not for the good. I totally understand trying to make pain meds less addictive. But what's the point in taking a med that doesn't offer you the relief you need and completely drains all energy away from you

Re: MysticJade (# 5)

I agree completely!! I'm useless when I take half of the prescribed dose. It barely takes the edge off pain. Vicodin 5/500 took care of pain and I wasn't sleepy at all
