4 doctors agree

In brief: Yes

Different people have different sensitivities to narcotics and hydrocodone, the active narcotic in norco, (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) is no different.
Particularly when combined with other medications or alcohol, taking 3 or 4 Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) tablets could result in a fatal overdose.

It is certainly possible. Take pain medication EXACTLY as prescribed.

An overdose can occur at that dose depending on your size, general health and prior opioid exposure.
