What is Norco 10/325mg?
Norco 10/325mg is a pain reliever drug that is a combination of two pain drugs that help treat moderate to severe pain, i.e., hydrocodone and acetaminophen. This combination is more effective than either drug alone.
This drug also sometimes works as a cough suppressant. One must not use Norco in large doses or any more than the doctor prescribes. You may buy Norco 10/325mg online from our pharmacy site and get guaranteed overnight delivery at your doorstep.
Two different strengths of Norco 10/325mg exist, 10mg of hydrocodone/325mg of acetaminophen and 7.5 mg of hydrocodone/325mg of acetaminophen, respectively. The strengths are not interchangeable.
The duration of the effect of the hydrocodone component is longer than that of the acetaminophen component.
Hydrocodone is an opioid that binds to specific receptors known as mu-opioid receptors and blocks pain signals through the brain and spinal cord.
Hydrocodone is a narcotic pain reliever drug. Acetaminophen is a less powerful pain killer that increases the efficacy of hydrocodone on the body.
The hydrocodone component of Norco takes approximately 1.4 hours to reach its peak concentrations, and the acetaminophen component takes, on average, 30 to 60 minutes to reach its peak concentrations.
The effect of the hydrocodone component lasts about 4 to 6 hours, whereas the acetaminophen component lasts about 3 to 4 hours.
