Can I Get My Norco 10/325 To Make Me Feel As Good As Vicodin Does?

I take Norco 10/325 for chronic pain. Is there anything I can do to make my Norco help me feel like when i take Vicodin E/S? I do not get that "good" feeling like with Vicodin e/s.

Answer

By "good" feeling, do you mean an emotional/psychologically uplifted feeling? If that's what you mean, it may not happen. When pain medications are prescribed and taken appropriately for pain, we don't get that "good" feeling. We simply get pain relief. Ideally, that relief from pain is what you're aiming for, and a "high" shoudln't be necessary. It is nice to feel a total sense of relief from pain, but needing that may be a sign of dependence that you should watch out for.

If what you're talking about is a matter of pain relief, it may be that Norco simply doesn't work as well for you as Vicodin. Our bodies respond differently to medications, so what's best for one person, may not be best for the next. This would definitely be an issue to discuss with your doctor when he or she is prescribingy your medications. Perhaps there's a better option for you that could help.
