Hi guys. Have a quick question for anyone that is on Norco and has IBS. I've been having something really peculiar going on. It feels like every time I take a Norco, it sends my large intestines into a tail spin. It honestly feels like very urgent when I have to go. If I don't drop everything and go at that particular moment, then there will be an accident.

Thoughts, ideas?

Well I hope it work like that for me because Norco stop me up

Amandamiddleton1234, I don't take Norco but i have IBS. Its possibly a side effect of the Norco. My IBS is predominantly constipation but occasionally I get diarrhea due to diet or med changes. Do you swing predominantly constipation or diarrhea?

FlappysLady, it depends on the day, mostly constipation most days, but on high anxiety days, more towards diarrhea. The weird thing is though, it didn't make it's presence known during my colonoscopy back in July, but it sure as heck is there.

I'd guess its either a side effect or because of the IBS it doesn't do well with you. Maybe call and ask the pharmacy or doctors office.

I will do that tomorrow. I'm thinking about just doing the Ibuprofen every 6 hours a.t.c and the Tramadol for breakthrough just until I can get to the specialist on Wednesday morning. Thanks for the help guys. Wishing everyone a light pain night and a great day tomorrow.
