Facts About Norco

Norco is a brand-name prescription painkiller that blends acetaminophen (Tylenol) and hydrocodone. Like many other prescription drugs, Norco comes in tablet, capsule and liquid form and is generally recommended every 4-6 hours to relieve moderate to severe pain.

Because Norco is addictive, those who suddenly stop using the drug may experience withdrawal symptoms, including muscle aches, restlessness, watering eyes, runny nose, sweating and nausea. When used over a prolonged period of time, individuals may build a tolerance to the drug, needing larger amounts to experience the same relief.

Treatment for Norco Addiction

Some people use Norco for legitimate reasons and do not intend to become addicted to Norco, while others start out using the drug recreationally. In both cases, Norco addiction requires professional intervention and can have a negative impact on every area of a person’s life.

Norco addiction treatment typically begins with Norco detox, which can be made comfortable and effective using methadone, Suboxone and other medications. Norco rehab is often needed to help the Norco addict develop healthier coping skills and develop a support network to increase the likelihood of long-term recovery.
