I have a few 5/325 norco pills. I'm pretty new to the pill scene. I've only taken demerol and I like them pretty good. I was wondering how many norco pills I should take for a nice high. Also, what kind of high do they give you? I know it's a different class of pill than the demerol so, I'm not really sure what to expect.

If they're yellow, i think they should be 15 MG if im not mistaken.

Take one and see how you feel. Yellow NorCos fuck you up.

^Not all yellow Norcos are 15mg and not all Norcos are yellow. Some are 5, 7.5 or 10mg.

It's in the same class of drugs (opiates/opioids) as Demerol is, and the highs are actually quite similar. The active ingredient in Norco is hydrocodone.

I recommend starting with 7.5 (one and a half pills) to 10mg for your starting dosage, since it seems that you don't have any tolerance. The high will most likely remind you of the Demerol high, but everybody experiences it differently.

If you have any issues with itching, you can take an antihistamine such as Benadryl (generic name: diphenhydramine).

Good luck!

They're white and they are 5 mg. So, starting with 10 should be okay? Thats awesome that they are the same as demerol. The best way is just to eat them right?

The best and safest way is to eat them. Do not snort them. You should be fine starting with 10mg.

ok so i was looking for vicodin, but the closest thing i could find was watson 853 pills. i have never done any opiates, is this good to start off with? how many at a time to get a good feeling for a first timer? and can someone compare/contrast this to vicodin etc? any other comments are welcome, thanks

They both contain hydrocodone as the narcotic ingredient and are effectively the same.

Check out the Beginner's Dosage Guide (http://www.bluelight.ru/vb/showthread.php?t=423848) for hydrocodone.

Depending on your body weight I would start off between 15-20mg if it's your first time with hydrocodone.

You'll feel enough to know what it's like, but most likely it's not enough to bring on nausea.

Anything under 15mg I've never been able to really feel, and I'm relatively small.

The highest dose of norco is 10mg.

Isn't 10mg the highest dose of any Hydrocodone containing pill?

I would start with 15mg, I'm a pretty small person and didn't feel really anything my first time taking 10mg... even on an empty stomach.
Yes, eat them, maybe break them in half if you want them to hit faster.

Edit: By the way, why take benadryl? The itch is amazing :D

How much do you weigh? 10mg is weak, take 15-20. ESPECIALLY if you have eaten recently.

What's said before. Hydrocodone and Vicodin are exactly the same thing.

Follow the dosage guide, I don't recommend starting with anything higher than 15mg.

^Probably the best course of action. If you've eaten recently (as was already mentioned) it could take over an hour for the effects to set in.

You should be feeling somthing off of 15mg. I've noticed a lot of opioid newbies expect a more intense fucked up kind of high and end up not noticing/appericiating the buzz. 15mg is a little low but it's better to be safe than sorry. 20-40mg is more of a recreational dose for someone with little to no tolerence. I wouldn't reccomend taking 40mg your second time though.

You're probably right. I am feeling something, just thought it would be more intense.

I always recommend 15mg for a newbie. If you have experience with Demerol you should be fine at that dose. If it works you'll feel very good from it. That was the first ever dose that I took and I was in heaven. Floating on clouds.

You basically only took 10mg because redosing isn't really effective at all, I have found, so taking that extra 5mg really didn't do much. So maybe take 15mg all at once or maybe upping to 20mg your second time should hopefully do the trick.

Yeah I usually suggest starting with 10mg (everything else has been addressed by some very accurate and experienced BLers already), but I'm guessing you could be female by your user name OP? I'm kinda average sized/small (5'2 but about 125 lbs) and 10mg used to almost make me nod, but after my 2 month binge with other opiates, I find now I need at least 20mg to feel something. I'd say try taking 15mg at once next time, some people have natural higher tolerances than others, but I've seen size come into play with opiates before (or significant size differences anyway, as well as gender, although this is not every case).

I wouldn't consider someone as having a "naturally higher tolerance" if they need 15mg. That's the usual recommended starting dose for most. If you can get high on less I'd say that you are lucky for not needing so much. My sister was able to get high from 10mg and I just had to throw a pillow at her :D It was innocent

Yeah, I could too when I first started using it, even 7.5 got me high at first, 5mg was always just a physically therapeutic dose. And since I believe the OP is female, I'd say no effects from 10 with no real previous experience could mean a naturally slightly higher tolerance.

Yea, next time (probably tomorrow) I'll just start with 15mgs. I'm feeling pretty good right now but I had a couple drinks also.

Be careful mixing it with alcohol. 15mg and a few beers is fine, just don't go overboard.

Be careful with mixing those...both cause CNS depression which can be fatal if the doses are too high, and the acetaminophen in the norcos, even if it's a relative small amount, is not good to have when you're drinking alcohol, since both are taken care of by the liver.

Okay good, we're a harm reduction board so I just wanted to be sure to point that out. :) I also never really mix alcohol with opiates, I feel like it takes away from the opiated feeling and both substances intensify the nausea I get from each of them.

Indeed. In addition to causing nausea and ruining the opiate high, adding alcohol to the mix is very dangerous for your liver due to the APAP content in hydrocodone combination products such as Vicodin, Norco, Lortab, etc.

Sometimes you don't feel anything on your first try because you really don't know what you're expecting. But usually on the second and third tries, you will feel the opiate high.

Hydrocodone feels a lot like Demerol, except I'd say Demerol is more sedative, causes more respiratory depression and it's shorter acting.

You think hydrocodone feels similar to Demerol? Interesting. I think Demerol feels a little 'different' than hydrocodone but I can really explain how. I do see some similarities but never thought about comparing the two.

Well it has a typical opioid effect, very similar to hydrocodone. Of course there is a little diference because meperidine is synthetic. But overall they have a similar very similar effect, especially when meperidine is IV'd.

Hydrocodone doesn't help with sleep for me, on the contrary, it makes it harder for me to get to sleep. It will give me a nod and I may end up falling to sleep for a couple hours but then I nod back into reality. I'll feel sedated but I always want to stay awake when I'm on opiates because I want to stay high for as long as I can. Then when it wears off I just want more.

^Aren't we all =D

A lot of people think that hydrocodone (Norco) in your case doesn't do anything for them because its not what they expected to happen. I imagine it is doing something for you, but its not as strong as you expected it to be (think of it as a reverse-placebo effect). What everybody else said is right, you can combine benzos such as alprazolam (Xanax) with opiates but be very careful.

Don't just keep taking more because nothing is happening, take K'd-OUT-in-AZ's and fryingsquirrel's advice on this one. Be careful pushing that dose past the beginner's range for hydrocodone.

A safer option is to use another potentiator such as a sedating antihistamine (Benadryl [diphenhydramine] is the best one to start with), check out the Ultimate Opiate Potentiation Thread v2.0 (http://www.bluelight.ru/vb/showthread.php?t=534200) for more information about using antihistamines to make opiates more effective.

A word of caution, however: Don't mix potentiators and alcohol, depressants mixed with depressants mixed with opiates is very dangerous.

There is no such thing as a hydrocodone(or norco, same thing) 15mg. There are only four doses, 2.5 mg, 5 mg, 7.5 mg, and 10 mg.
