Caution: Taking both Nyquil and Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) may increase side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. Avoid alcohol while taking these meds. Talk to prescribing doctor. I hope this helps.

Yes, but . . .: Just b/c you can, doesn't mean you should. Chat w/prescribing doc re potential drug-drug interactions (http://www.drugs.com/interactions-check.php?drug_list=71-8487,53-17161) btwn Hydrocodone (part of Norco) & Doxylamine (part of some Nyquil products). Also, don't exceed 3g/d acetaminophen (found in both Nyquil & Norco). Also, be sure to avoid alcohol w/either/both. Get well soon!
