Drug Classification: digitek (digoxin) = Digoxin -- classified as an inotrope/pressor. However, it does have other effects. Norco= hydrocodone + acetaminophen. Hydrocodone is a synthetic narcotic or opioid. Acetaminophen is an analgesic ( pain reliever) and an antipyretic ( anti- fever). Commonly known as Tylenol. Norfolk is a combination of the 2 drugs.

They both will help with inflammation, pain, headaches, etc. However, since they both work with similar mechanisms, taking them together is not recommended unless under oversight by a physician. With increased NSAID use, you can have many side effects, including stomach irritation, ulcer, and bleeding issues. Hope this helps! ...Read more
