Pain Home > Norco Overdose Symptoms

It is possible to take too much Norco® (hydrocodone/APAP). Although the specific symptoms of a Norco overdose will vary, some of the effects may include:
  • Cold, clammy skin
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Bleeding
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Extreme drowsiness, leading to a coma
  • Cardiac arrest
  • Loss of life.
There is a medication that can be given for the treatment of the acetaminophen overdose, which can help prevent liver damage. Another antidote (naloxone or Narcan®) may be administered to counteract overdose effects of the hydrocodone component of Norco.
Seek immediate medical attention if you believe you have taken too much Norco. Early treatment after a Norco overdose is essential. If the overdose was recent, a healthcare provider may induce vomiting, "pump the stomach," or administer activated charcoal to prevent the body from absorbing Norco.
