I have to disagree with the above poster. I have often seen people on both Norco and Percocet and often given by the same Dr. They give the Norco for lesser pain and Percocet for more severe pain. Yes, you can take Percocet 6 hours after Norco but you do have to be aware of the amount of acetaminophen you are getting from all sources and be sure you dont go over the amount of 3000-4000mg of acetaminophen in any 24 hour period. You may want to ask your prescriber about the limit of how many tablets combined you can take in a 24 hour period. You didnt say what strength your percocet is.
Did your Dr switch your Meds? If this is a new prescription give the Dr a quick call before the weekend
It is not common practice to prescribe 2 Meds at the same time containing acetometaphrine because it can damage the liver quickly
If it has been 6 hours I would worry less but I would not take these Meds together
I am confused by your post and wonder why you have both Meds without clear instructions
Be safe and feel better
