Norco – A Powerful Hydrocodone Painkiller

norco addiction brand pillNorco is a prescription painkiller containing hydrocodone and acetaminophen (the active ingredient in Tylenol). Hydrocodone is a potent opioid that relieves moderate to severe pain. Acetaminophen is a less potent painkiller used to enhance the effects of hydrocodone.

Supplied in tablet form, Norco is most often prescribed in two strengths: either 5 mg, 7.5 mg, or 10 mg of hydrocodone combined with 325 mg of acetaminophen. Before the FDA lowered the level of acetaminophen allowed, Norco had the lowest amount of acetaminophen for any hydrocodone drugs. Currently, it has the highest amount of acetaminophen allowed (325 mg) — slightly more than the 300 mg found in Vicodin.

Norco Abuse

Norco is a Schedule II drug under the Controlled Substances Act. Schedule II drugs have a medically accepted use and less abuse potential than Schedule I. Despite this, many Schedule II drugs are often abused.

Norco, along with other hydrocodone combination drugs, was moved from Schedule III to Schedule II in October of 2014 in an attempt to combat addiction and abuse.

Any time someone uses Norco without a prescription or in a way other than what is prescribed, it is considered abuse. Continued abuse of Norco can lead to a physical dependence and even opioid addiction. This is marked by a tolerance to the drug and withdrawal symptoms caused by stopping use.

Signs and Effects of Norco Addiction

It’s important to recognize a Norco addiction as early as possible, as this will decrease your likelihood of experiencing difficult withdrawal symptoms. People can become dependent on, and even addicted to, their regular dose, making it difficult to tell the difference between a problem and normal use. There are a few red flags to make recognizing an addiction easier:

  • Needing more Norco to achieve the same relief
  • Mixing Norco with other drugs for a better high
  • Doctor shopping to get more of the drug
  • Spending an inordinate amount of time getting or using Norco
  • Forgoing responsibilities and relationships in favor of Norco use

  • In 2012, almost 2 million people tried opioids like Norco recreationally for the first time.

Norco Addiction Treatment

Recovering from a Norco addiction is difficult, but many people have successfully done it. The best way to recover from a Norco addiction is with the help of a trained medical professional. The typical rehabilitation process follows these steps:

Detoxification

Also called simply detox, this is the process of removing the substance from your body before continuing treatment. This relieves the physical dependence on the drug while monitoring and addressing withdrawal symptoms that come from stopping use. Detox is an important first step in any recovery period.

Inpatient treatment

Allowing for a recovering addict to focus on their treatment, inpatient facilities provide a healing environment. Inpatient treatment temporarily eliminates the stresses and triggers of the outside world. During this time, recovering addicts learn how to live life and handle stress without using Norco as a fallback.

Ongoing treatment

As most inpatient treatments only last a few weeks, the next step is ongoing treatment in the form of counseling and support groups. Whether you have an individual therapist or a drug-related support group (or both), it is important to continue surrounding yourself with like-minded people and healthy relationships.
