Norco Detox Program

Norco Detox Program







What Is Norco?

Norco is a prescription pain killer that is prescribed to alleviate moderate to severe pain. Norco contains Hydrocodone, which is an opioid narcotic, and Acetaminophen (Tylenol). Both aide in minimizing pain. Norco is most commonly prescribed for acute medical conditions that cause pain. 

Doctors will usually prescribe Norco after major surgeries, invasive dental procedures, severe injuries or burns, and cancer patients. It is not typically prescribed for chronic pain conditions because of the acetaminophen ingredients, which can damage the liver over time. If you’re addicted to hydrocodone pills, also known under the brand name Norco, then our opioid detox program is the perfect solution to start comfortably healing.

There are three strengths that Norco is available in, all in tablet form: 5 mg of hydrocodone, with 325 mg of acetaminophen; 7.5 mg of hydrocodone and 325 mg of acetaminophen. The most potent prescription strength for Norco is 10 mg of hydrocodone and 325 acetaminophens. Norco has a distinct reputation for abuse. Persons who struggle with a substance use disorder, also known as addiction, often desire the most potent dose, 10 mg/ 325 mg.

Signs and Symptoms of Norco Addiction

To discern if someone is addicted to Norco, there are several signs and symptoms of Norco addiction. Initially, most people who abuse Norco originally got it from their doctor. Once addiction begins, this individual is likely to start doctor shopping to get more Norco. Doctor shopping is when a person sees more than one doctor get a prescription for Norco. People will exaggerate pain or falsify pain to convince a doctor to prescribe them Norco. Other signs and symptoms of Norco addiction will include:

  • Extreme obsession and levels of concern about having Norco
  • Lying to family and friends about their Norco use
  • Disinterest in activities that were once meaningful
  • Appearing sluggish and tired most of the time
  • Borrowing or asking for money for sudden emergencies frequently ( lost wallet, flat tires, unexplained bills, money for food, gas, etc.)
  • Agitation and erratic emotional responses
  • Driving while on Norco
  • Consuming alcohol with Norco
  • Buying Norco from dealers or other people
  • Legal consequences and loss of work or quitting school as a result of Norco use

The National Center for Biotechnology Information advances science and health publish recent research and insight on numerous addictive substances. In an April 2020 article that addresses Norco (hydrocodone) addiction, the authors state outright how frequently Norco is abused and that the DEA considers it a Schedule II drug, which means it is incredibly addictive and very often misused.   

Hydrocodone (Norco) is one of the most common pain medications prescribed by clinicians and one of the most abused by the patients. Hydrocodone is a DEA Schedule II controlled substance, and hence has a potential for abuse, misuse, and substance use disorder. (NCBI)

Norco Withdrawal Symptoms

If a person is addicted to Norco, they will likely experience physical, emotional, and mental withdrawal symptoms. Since Norco is an opiate, the withdrawal symptoms will mirror other opiate withdrawal symptoms (heroin, Fentanyl, Oxycontin, etc.). Although Norco is not as potent as other opiates, it can cause the same severity of withdrawal symptoms. Norco withdrawal symptoms can begin as few as 4 to 6 hours from the last dose. Norco withdrawal symptoms can quickly turn into a life-threatening emergency. It is never recommended that anyone who is addicted to Norco’s attempt to detox alone.

The likelihood of a medical emergency occurring should not be ignored. Many persons attempt to go ‘cold turkey’ to get clean off Norco, and then after one or two days, they give in and resume to taking Norco; but often take a more potent dose that can easily cause an overdose. This frequently occurs with opiate addictions such as Norco. Some of the significant withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea
  • Abdominal cramping
  • Cold sweats and chills
  • Extreme anxiety
  • Uncontrollable leg and arm movements (known as kicking)
  • Runny nose, sneezing and yawning
  • Sweating and dehydration
  • Insomnia
  • Intense cravings for hydrocodone
