how many milligrams of vicodin are in norco 10-325?
Vicodin and Norco are just two different brands of the same medication combo – hydrocodone and acetaminophen. Norco 10-325 has 10 mg. hydrocodone and 325 mg acetaminophen.
I didn't realize Norco contained acetaminophen. I am trying to help a family member cut back on the norco. She takes six or more norco in a single day.
The maximum number of Norco tablets that should ever be taken in 24 hrs. is six. The hydrocodone in Norco is an opioid and it's important to taper off of them very gradually to avoid withdrawal symptoms. If your family member wants to discontinue the Norco, it would be a good idea for her to talk with her doctor about it and get his help. He could help her gradually reduce the dosage and perhaps stretch the time between doses. At some point, he may also want to prescribe a milder pain medication to help her through the withdrawal period.
You are correct with one caveat. Norco contains 325 mg of acetaminophen, whereas Vicodin contains 750 mg of acetainophen. Norco is preferred for longer term usage because of the risk of liver damage caused by high doses of acetaminophen.
You're right – Norco does have less acetaminophen than Vicodin. However, there are three different strengths of Vicodin: Vicodin is 5/500; Vicodin ES is 7.5/750; and Vicodin HP is 10/660.
You are correct and I stand corrected. I should have read the question more thoroughly. My appologies.
