Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) & Alcohol: Not good idea since both are sedating, and alcohol can intensify pain perception when sober.

Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) alcohol: If you still use Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) then you should not consume alcohol. If you have discontinued Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) i usually suggest 24 hrs . Better to be safe than sorry.
