What is Norco?

I had another horrible headache today it brought me to tears. I am hoping it is a stress headache and just not my migraines again. I have usually always been on pain meds so I am hoping it was not masking this, maybe something even more serious than migraines. Anyways I was talking with my buddy who gets non narcotic pain meds for his feet and he said he had Narco. He said it is similar to Tramdol. I got one and half pills and took half around 4 and another half just now. I am feeling buzzed tho. I am seriously hoping this is not an opiate can someone please let me know. If it is then its all my fault for not asking more about it and/or letting my friend know the situation. His exact words though were the same as an tramadol. If it was an opiate what should I expect to feel tomm from this? I was taking 40mga  day off and on for four years. On the 23rd I quit taking codone which is all I took. the following weekend I took methdaone 5mg Fridnight/sat am. Since then once again I took nothing.

Cathy, You have no idea how much those words mean to me. Great post. I will be looking at this again and again for motivation. I feel aweful but my headache is gone. I have a big day tomm and I am so overwhelmed with stress about what job offer to take. I have no savings b/c of the stock market and 2 are sales but huge opportunities and the other is sales in the same field but new company with some salary. Not enough to cover next months bills tho. I am so young and so much debt:( The only positive that can come out of tonight is I will sleep well! I am exhausted now

Yea, I hope so. They dont feel WD related though. When I was 18 they thought I had a tumor but was wrong. I really hope that my migraines calm down. it was back to back days and unbearable today. I pray I dont feel WD's again cuz of my bonehead move.

I know that when I went through detox, my migraines acted up a lot at first. I figured it was just the toxins leaving my body as well as a rebound effect from over using pain killers for headaches. I took Imitrex for the really bad ones. After a couple weeks, they decreased in intensity and frequency. Hopefully this is all that is happening with you.

these were white with watson on it. I am texting him as we speak to let him know that its an opiate and that tramadol is not the same thing as this. I cant be mad at him b/c he has no idea of my problem. My fault, I mean who the hell knows not to take a pill unless your positive of what it is.

Hey JT,
I am so glad to see you back here bud. Hahaha looks like I messed up to  so guess what we can start over again together. How does that sound? I am not trying to be impolite but it is kind of humorous that an addicts biggest downfall is his secrecy of his addiction. That and my lack of knowledge just set me back to ground zero. Hopefully I wont have the WDs again. I do not like how I feel at the moment. I want my soberness back. The headache is gone. Has anyone ever had a stress headache? I am very stressed depressed about the economy and my mind is always thinking. I need to find a way to avoid these...any advice on how to? Any specific vitamins or drinks that may help so that this does not happen in the future. Your bonehead friend Bucksfan!

Yes it is an opiate. I hope your headache goes away. if you only took two halfs it won't set you back with w/d's, but please be careful with the pills ok:) hang in there.

It is Norcodin, I have never heard that before. Around here its Lortab, Vicodin, Hydrocodone and Oxycodone. Man I am efffing pissed.  Well I just flushed the last half. I knew I felt buzzed but I was very unmotivated and the pills used to make me motivated. What do I do now? Just buckle down for WD's again or hopefully since I only took 2 halfs I may not feel them. What about Furicet or how however you spell it. I get bad migraines in the summer and its a barbituate. Does that mean it contains opiates as well?

Also, does Motrin IB mess anyone elses stomach up? I had to stop taking because I believe that was the cause of the stomach issue still lingering. It was really bad today after being somewhat better since the 26th
