Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) with Ativan: The combination Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) with Ativan has some risk to it because both drugs are sedative, both are respiratory depressants and both have addiction potential. They can be taken together only with a doctors consent, prescription and supervision.

Be careful: You may take Norco 5/325 with Ativan but you have to be cautious because Norco is a narcotic combined with Acetaminophen or tylenol (acetaminophen) and Ativan is a benzodiazepine and together they may cause drowsiness - even beyond what each would cause on it's own or additively together (synergistic effect) so extreme caution should be taken.
