I'm assuming you mean Norco. Yes it is. It is hydrocodone... same thing as Vicodin, Lorcet, Lortabs. I'm sure there's probably a few other names for it. But it IS NOT the same thing as Oxycodone or Suboxone. They are all different things, but still Opiates.

Suboxone is considered a long acting opiate replacement, but it is not a true opiate because of the way they put the naloxone in it ( that additionally blocks opiate) and the way it is absorbed under the tongue.

Just to add a bit more to answer above, not only is Norco an opiate due to the Hydrocodone, it is derived from either one of the two major compounds found in the opium plant, codeine and Thebaine (morphine is the third). It is then chemically modified into Hydrocodone, thus making it a semi-synthetic drug that is 12x's the strength of codeine. Due to the fact that it hits on the opioid sensors, it's also considered an opioid for what-ever it's worth.
Suboxone is also an Opiate as it contains Buprenorphine, another semi-synthetic compound derived from Thebaine. Like the Hydrocodone, it also binds with the Opioid sensors making it also considered an Opioid type drug.

Norco has the opiate hydrocodone it also has the medication combination of Tylenol (acetaminophen) 325mg. it comes in strengths 5/325, 7.5/325mg, and 10/325mg.
