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...

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 ...

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.

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...

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...
