Norco Drug Information
Norco® (hydrocodone/APAP) is a medication used to treat moderate-to-moderately severe pain. It is only available with a prescription and is only approved for use in adults. As a narcotic and controlled substance, Norco is a highly abused drug. To help prevent this, there are special rules and regulations regarding its sale and use.
Norco comes in tablet form and is typically taken every four to six hours as needed for pain.
Although the medicine is generally well tolerated, it is not suitable for everyone. Before taking Norco, make sure your healthcare provider has up-to-date information on your medical history and a list of your current medications. In particular, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you have lung disease, hypothyroidism, or kidney disease. Possible side effects include drowsiness, constipation, and nausea.
