Norco Side Effects

Table of Contents

What are Norco Side Effects?

You can expect to feel some side effects from most medications and Norco is no different. Norco is an opiate pain reliever used in the management of moderate to severe pain. Not every person taking Norco experiences side effects in the same way. Some can be mild, while others may last longer or be more severe. Furthermore, there are several outside factors that can determine how some experience these effects. For example, the experience can be determined by body chemistry and how an individual’s body metabolizes Norco. Additionally, other substances can interact with Norco, changing the way it works in the body.
All prescription medications include information on drug and substance interactions, general information on how the drug should be taken and warnings on responsible use. Consequently, users should follow these directions exactly. Side effects could be heightened if Norco is taken with alcohol, other narcotic medications, some prescription drugs, herbal supplements, minerals, and vitamins.
Less serious Norco side effects can also include:

  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • dry mouth
  • constipation
  • light-headedness
  • dizziness
  • feelings of sedation

In most cases, you can’t stop yourself from experiencing some side effects, but you can guard yourself against some that are more severe.
 

Norco Side Effects and Potentially Serious Warnings

Norco is the combination of hydrocodone and acetaminophen. Hydrocodone is an opiate medication that has the ability to be habit forming. We consider Norco side effects as the development of physical or psychological dependence or addiction. Taking Norco over time can lead to the development of a tolerance, sometimes causing patients to take more to achieve basic pain relief. Norco can also cause drowsiness so it’s important to be cautious when performing potentially dangerous activities such as driving. You may experience slow or shallow breathing when taking Norco, especially in high quantities. It is a central nervous system depressant and alcohol and other substances can intensify this side effect. We strongly discourage the recreational use and abuse of Norco and other opiates as the potential for overdose is high.

Serious Norco Side Effects

If you experience any of the following symptoms, seek medical attention immediately:

  • cold/clammy skin
  • heavy perspiration
  • extreme sleepiness that progresses to a stupor
  • limp muscles
  • slowed heartbeat
  • trouble breathing
  • low blood pressure

 

Safe, Humane Treatment for Norco Addiction is Just a Call Away

The Waismann Method of rapid detox can help if you are suffering from Norco addiction. Our pioneering procedure, performed in a southern California hospital, utilizes intravenous medications to cleanse patients’ opiate receptors. This takes place while the patients sleep lightly under sedation. Once they awaken, they have no conscious awareness of the withdrawal that took place during the procedure. Our highly successful and humane treatment can reverse prescription painkiller addiction in a matter of days, getting you back on your feet quicker than other drug detox programs. And unlike some other facilities, the Waismann Method doesn’t believe in treating an opiate addiction with opiate replacement therapy. This ensures you will not have to deal with a second addiction and detox.
