I have cronic back pain due to an injury. I had surgery in March of 2003 to try to repair the damage, but it was not successful. So I have was prescibed Hydrocodone/APAP, and if not for this medication, I would no longer be able to work or have a normal life. (I also take Neurontin for nerve pain and Ultram for inflamation.) But due to those people who abuse such medications, it is hard to find a ...

This drug is a narcotic , only patients with chronic back pain are druggies that want a addiction supply . It does nothing for pain other than making you feel stoned so u wont feel nothing , and doctors that prescribe this should be sorry for themselves.this should be taken off the market . This is pretty much the same thing as vicodin.
Mallingkropf (sp) 4mg tablets 5/23: I actually reported these to the FDA. 16mg felt like nothing. After the report I kept trying (surprise--I couldn't get a replacement rx, but that'sanother letter) and then felt they increased my pain, with addition of headaches which I reported to mfgr. only who followed up. Looking back I wonder if I was in withdrawal, complete with suicidal thoughts. But why I am really here: Raise your voices! Stop allowing them to push us around. Write those letters, even if you can only eke out 'too much pain to write but want to at least say _____ is just wrong. Good luck!Read More Read Less
I was a 57 yr old delivery driver got rear ended at stop sign.Dr prescribed norco-took them for 12 yrs maxing out Kaiser guide lines. No nausea no headaches no adverse affects . Try loading freight with crippling back pain. Continuous full ache that would expand to vise like tightness. I took them for 12 years-little withdrawals symptoms lasted a few days . Going to return to using them as I am back in that line of work. I’m sorry for all who had adverse reactions; without them I could not have performed at the level required. As for the party who stated these are just for stoners- walk a mile in my shoes-better yet load a ton or do of freight drive 150 miles a day unloading thst at 40-50 stops a day then pick up another 20 plus stops and get Back in time to meet an outbound truck- do that 10hrs a day and tell me those things don’t work. I see you UPS guy. You’re a man who works way harder than I do ( except for the loading part). When you see him a @10 at night with a full size truck and trailer in residential neighborhoods he’s working. Closest thing to Santa Claus. Makes me feel like an elf. When I get done with my 50+ stops a day I’m worn up. Just thankful those worked for meRead More Read Less
I had an emergency painful tooth pulled. My dentist gave me this and it did not work! Normally they do I take for a day and I’m good but not this time! Can we talk about the headaches! Omg once it wears off I get the worst headache!
I have a L1 T12 incomplete spinal cord injury since 1985. I have been taking nrcos for about 7 years. They were so perfect for my particular pain, I was able t get 2 AS degrees, raise 2 teens and go back to work. But something changed, the yellow norcos were no longer available. I have been on the 2 different generic brands Rhoads and Mallinckrodt. both make me nauseous and itchty and do not work for pain! I am frustrated because my quality of life is not the same because of this switch. I am fighting chronic pain daily and it is exhausting! Does anyone know of a better generic brand that is available? I may be able to find a pharmacist who would get them for me..Read More Read Less
I've been on Hydrocodone with Acetaminophen 5/325 since 2015. I have DDD with 3 disc herniations, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, a small cartilage tear in my left knee, and bone spurs in both shoulders. The original manufacturer, Watson, was very good. It worked perfectly and after getting a bit nauseous at first, it soon passed and I had no problems. Fast-forward a few years and Mallinckrodt (spelling?) took over as the manufacturer. Omg, the difference was so awful! I developed severe nausea, ringing in my ears, sweating, palpitations, feeling jittery, muscle twitches, and lots of itching. The medicine also did not work well and wore off within 2 hours. Tonight, my pharmacy received their supply from a different manufacturer called Lupin. I noticed the difference an hour after I took it! No side effects at all! I don't have that rolling, pukey feeling that I did with the Mallinckrodt, and I'm not sweaty or jittery, and my heart is beating normally. It is also working much better. I'm not sure what kind of crap Mallinckrodt was putting into their medicine, but I know it wasn't good, and especially since I've read the reviews here and people talking about the same things I was experiencing. Out of all the side effects, the nausea and sickness were the worst. What a difference switching manufacturers made! I'll be calling my pharmacy tomorrow and telling them to never give me the Mallinckrodt brand again, and to stick with Lupin from now on. I'm so sorry to hear what others have had to go through with that horrid Mallinckrodt brand! I'm hoping that that business received enough complaints and lawsuits against them to finish them off once and for all, and that they'll never be able to manufacture another drug ever again! They should be ashamed of themselves with such poor quality and making so many people sick from their product! May they burn in the deepest pit of h€ll!Read More Read Less
Just reading all these reviews confirms what I already know. These norcos are not the same! I’m on 90 10 mg a month- and I get zero pain relief! I’ve also had some very serious gut issues since taking them and I believe they are directly tied. It is so screwed up to take away someone’s right to a decent somewhat normal life living with chronic pain. Something needs to be done and be done soon.
Does not work for pain. Side effects are horrible. Really bad nausea. Very weak. Does not have the correct amount of active ingredients. I get sick with this mallinckrodt brand medication. I didn't get sick with other brands . The pharmacies don't have other brands now which should be against the law. Very bad product !!
Tgese pills are pseudo effectie lol
I was given this after a very brutal tooth extraction. It does nothing to help. I have stoped taking it and started ibuprofen over the counter. That works better than this crap.
I've been taking 10 - 325 hydrocodone for about 2 years due to severe spinal stenosis. Surgery is NOT an option. The medication has worked well for me UNTIL my pharmacy switched manufacturers. Lupin was the co that used to make the med. It works well and as advertised keeps my pain to a minimum. TRIS 10-325 is a BAD MEDICATION. No pain relief and it makes you sick. Don't take hydrocodone made by TRIS.
I have cronic back pain due to my spine being dislocated from a car accident Feb 2003. I had surgery in 2008 to remove a large mass, but it was not successful. Then had a spinal tap to drain the fluid which ended up causing nerve pain in my right leg. So I have was prescibed Hydrocodone/APAP, and if not for this medication, I would no longer be able to work or have a normal life. I have found several doctors that I have been fortunate to care for me but now have either retired or left because of those people who abuse such medications and now it is hard to find a doctor who will prescibe it. I was on a number of pain medications percocet 10/325, 5/325 but ended up on Hydrocodone/APAP 7.5/325 since 2013, I take it as directed and only as directed. I understand that the laws governing this medication are very strict, but I believe if you have cronic pain above a level 5 with proof of condition, you should be able to recieve this medication without the doctor treating you like your a drug abuser! I have tried the Epidural Injections, Joint Injections, Physical Therapy (which made it worse), exersize, and many other things, but the Hydrocodone/APAP and the other meds in combination with that are the only thing that has been able to keep me working and living a full and happy life. I work full-time and have my own business. In addition to that I have nephews and godchildren I love to pick up and spend with, and I can only do that because of my medication. I am just hoping and praying I am to find a doctor like the ones I was blessed to have in previous years without having to be a genie pig being experimented on with pain pumps, spinal cord stimulators (which have caused severe damage for many patients).Read More Read Less
I broke my neck in 1986 and have had 4 ortho surgeries..The FDA has forced ingredient changes without public notice. NDKT 10 was added to pain meds that greatly diminishes addictiveness and resolves constipation, but unfortunately it also greatly reduces efficacy. It is so sad that this country allows its FDA to do this to its citizens. I lost my JOB because of this. I thought my condition was worsening, nerve pain began shooting down my arm again which made me suffer, my pain has increased I feel sick to my stomach.. more suffering. People are not going to go thru life jobless and in pain simply because the FDA thinks that's best for them!!! . Fentanyl is readily available and CHEAP the FDA has created the Fentanyl CRISIS by overstepping their boundaries. NOW WHAT? MANY WILL JUST GO TO THE HASSLE FREE ALTERNATIVE .. the Darknet.Read More Read Less
The drug is not that effective for breakthrough pain. I become nauseated at time when taking it. It is a poor drug for pain control for moderate to severe pain. Oxycodone works better for that type of pain. There isn't much to offer for mild pain since they took Darvon off the market years ago. Many people relied on that medication for pain and many, many people took it without problems. It was taken off the market for some type of heart related problems as I understand it. So many people did not have heart problems though. Read More Read Less
Mallinckrodt does not work. I have been on it for 5-6 years. This script is worthless. How can they get away with this inferior product!
I have been on Norcos since 2010 due to neck and back surgery have managed with proper dosing of my medication all of these years a few months back I got Mallinckrodt brand and had a very rough month not understanding why thinking it was related to some of my other medical issues well then I was told from my home health nurse and another person that I know that takes the same medication that got the same brand are staying nauseated and not getting relief from their pain somebody needs to do something in regards to this company. I contacted my Pharmacy and was informed that all the other manufacturers supposedly are on back order and they can't get them and that the only company that is providing them is Mallinckrodt makes me wonder what's up with that. The government is so anti opioid it makes me wonder if they've got their hands in this I'm not a conspiracy theory nor am I paranoid or anything like that but it does make you more stop and go hmmmmm....Read More Read Less
This medicine as changed! Doesn’t relieve pain at all. The formula is totally different. This is not okay especially for individuals that suffer from pain on a daily basis. I can only pray that no one dies from this medicine. You really have no idea what it is your are talking. Doctors that prescribe this medication should be upfront with patients due to the changes but they are all in it too with the FDA, Government and Pharmaceutical Companies. It’s sad that it’s come to this.
My rating is for when I get a prescription for Norco that works. 2 out of the last 4 months I got a script that didn't work. I'm thinking a Amneal or Tris salesman has someone working on the inside of the pharmacy I used. That person can handle the inventory. This is what I got from calling the FDA. They said call Medicare, consider using a corporate drug store instead of being a good guy and using your doctors pharmacy. Ask the pharmacy what company is producing the pills before I buy them, and if my physician won't give me a pill for pill exchange deal, get a new doctor; because he probably knows what his pharmacy is doing. I called Medicare, they had me also call a patient advocate. But my guess is not doing anything is bad news waiting to happen. I had surgery for a crushed disk. Also I have a sciatic problem from a sports injury that is now thought of as DDD. Degenerative Disk Disease. I have some stenosis and now my L3 and L4 are becoming a problem. And this is payback for putting out for their society. I could ring someone's neck for this. I have a useless months worth of medication. Do us a favor , bug the FDA. Read More Read Less
This pain medicine does not relieve my fibro or back pain at all. Worthless.
Can’t tell I’m even taking a pain medication Crohn’s RA this medication sucks ! Walgreens cost more than anyone and now I get this junk. What is really going on?
The pharmaceutical company has changed it. It's no longer effective like the thousands of other useless pain medications.
