Is it like a vicodin 500, 750, or what? I'm confused, and don't want to make myself ill from taking too much, or a drug interaction. Anyone know the correct answer? I don't usually take pills period. CONFUSED!
Norco 325/5 contains a combination of acetaminophen and hydrocodone.
It contains 5mg of hydrocodone and 325mg of acetaminophen.
(Vicodin 500 contains 500mg of acetaminophen and 5mg of hydrocodone - almost the same as Norco but a little stronger)
Here is a link to what they look like.
It is essentially Vicodin only Norco is the name brand. It is an opioid analgesic/nonopioid analgesic combination. Your prescription is 325/5 which means the pills consist of 325mg of acetaminophen and 5mg of the opioid portion which is hydrocodone. Basically you are recieving 5mg of the drug with one pill. The orange speckles in the pill indicate it is time release. You will be fine taking 1 to 2 pills every 4 hours for pain. If you are taking other medications I assume since your doctor prescribed you this drug there should not be a problem with drug interactions.
