Norco Narcotic Information

Norco® (hydrocodone/APAP) is licensed for the treatment of moderate-to-severely moderate pain brought on by both short-term conditions, such as a dental procedure, and long-term conditions, such as cancer. It contains two different products: hydrocodone (a narcotic) and APAP (acetaminophen). This medication comes in tablet form and is designed to be taken by mouth.
Because it contains a narcotic, Norco is not appropriate for everyone, particularly people who have a history of drug or alcohol abuse. If you feel like you need to start taking more than your healthcare provider recommends, or to take it when you are not experiencing pain, don't be afraid to seek help. This is a classic sign of Norco addiction.
When prescribing Norco, information that will also help your healthcare provider determine if this medication is right for you, as well as the correct dose, includes any other medicines you are taking (especially other sources of acetaminophen) and any medical conditions you have, such as liver disease, Addison's disease, or benign prostatic hyperplasia.
