Norco Withdrawal Symptoms

Because Norco® (hydrocodone/APAP) can cause physical and psychological dependence, you should not stop taking it suddenly or without your healthcare provider's approval and supervision. If the medication is stopped abruptly, it can cause withdrawal symptoms, such as:
  • Sweating and a runny nose
  • Goosebumps
  • Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea
  • Agitation.
Unlike withdrawal from many other drugs, withdrawal from Norco is unlikely to cause life-threatening symptoms. However, withdrawal symptoms can be so uncomfortable that people start taking the drug again in order to relieve these symptoms. In order to limit withdrawal, your healthcare provider can slowly decrease your Norco dosage at a rate that helps minimize withdrawal symptoms.
