I have been on Norco for over a year now and it hasn't been my miracle drug, but it has taken the edge off. I am on more than one pain medication because of the chronic pain. I'm sure it would do a lot of good for people who have not had all of the problems that I do. I had severe diverticulits, a colon-resection, a colostomy, colostomy reversal and numerous other surgeries. All of this causing the now chronic pain due to nerve entrapment, scar tissue, a large hernia, etc. The side effects have been nausea which has been offset by adding Phenergan to the mix, fatigue and drowsiness. Over time they don't bother me as much. All and all it hasn't been a bad medication for me and is worth a try if you have pain. Each person is different and each medication has a different affect on each of us.
