Norco is an opioid prescription medication under the category of controlled substance made up of Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone. The mixture of these medicines comes in both oral tablet and oral solution form. The oral tablet is available with the brand name Norco. It consists of Hydrocodone and Acetaminophen.
Hydrocodone works by linking to the mu-opioid receptor. The working of acetaminophen is still not transparent, but it may involve blocking or causing hurdles in the creation of prostaglandins. Doctors may recommend it following an injury or a major surgery or treat other types of severe pain like cancer or arthritis. Hydrocodone comes with various warnings due to its high potential for abuse and addiction.
