NO.  norco is twice as strong as hydro.  since you're taking 7.5 it would be the same as taking 3 hydros to take 2 norco.

I have taken both narco is vicodin 10's so it is more powerful than the 7.5/  just know one you start upping your dosage the need for it is stronger and it is sssooooo much harder to get off.  please take that from me.

Hydrocodone comes in various strengths and levels of Tylenol. I took 7.5/325s.

Norco has less tylenol in it than vicoden or lortab

I didn't know Norco was that much different from hydrocodone....when i got Norcos a few years ago...they were just 7.5 migs of hydro and 325 migs of Tylenol....it was allot smaller than any vicodin I've ever taken also...and it was yellow....so i think the only difference in the two is strength and physical size of the pill....Peace and good luck :)

I switched from vicodin 7'5s over to narcos then i kept getting sick and stuff so for swelling switched to vicaprofen.  Out of everything vicaprofen was the HARDEST to get off. if you dont take it while your sleeping cause your sleeping why take it. you wake up in cold sweats.  what is it you are taking it for if you dont mind me asking? If you are tapering it is never good to increase your dosage you want to decrease it. i would not recomend narco from an addict the high is better with narco which is why it is worse than the hydros 7.5s.  try to taper with the 7.5s.  shoot me a message if you wanna talk more. trust me i know about every freaking type of vicodin there is.

you can get vicodin 7.5's in 325 tyleon and 500 tylenol.  IF you are trying to get away from tylenol and are NOT going to be taking them for long or for recreation i would ask abut vicaprofin.  The ibupofen makes it better with swelling.  Just remember ALWAYS educate yourself first and try try try to not over do it.  you dont want to be addicted to ANY of them but if you are taking them for pain and not over taking them that is a different story.  At least it is to me.

Best of luck

Norco has less acetominophen then Vic and is probably less rough on your body.  However Norco is more powerful and generally more addictive.  Either one is a terrible addiction to kick!!!

i dont understand why a "high is better on a norco" than a vicodin? if they are the same dose of hydrocodone, what difference would it make??
anyhow i would think they are equally addictive, they are the same drug.

Norco is 10mg. hydro and 325 mg. acetaminophen.  The narcotic is the same in Norco, Vics and Lortab...it is all hydro.  Taking two 7.5 mg. vics would be "stronger" than one 10 mg. Norco, but two 10 mg. Norcos would be stronger than two 7.5 vics.  It's a simple matter of mathmatics.  

The tylenol content is definately higher in vics and lortab than in norco, and the tylenol boosts the effects of the hydro, so, actually, a 10 mg. lortab is a little "stronger" than a 10 mg. Norco, but only a little.  I know, when I was using, if all I could get was Norco, I would sometimes add a tylenol to it for that reason.

I hope that helps a little.  I realize this is not why she's asking, I'm just posting because there seems to be some misunderstanding about it in these posts.

why do you want to take less tylenol? 2-3 vics/day is not a lot of APAP -- it's like 650-975 mgs/day. you can take up to 2,000 mgs/day safely, some docs even make 4,000 mgs/day the ceiling. you're still well below even the most conservative limit, so why are you wanting to decrease your tylenol? tylenol, BTW, is actually quite good for real pain.  :)

I wanted to add something...

I did not post that response to give people here ideas on how to "maximize" the effect of the hydro.  Too much tylenol can be fatal, as we all know.  The way skitz is taking them seems to be "as prescribed" and not over-using or abusing them.  They are all "too strong" if taken for anything other than legitimate pain as prescribed.  I was just trying to clear up the confusion.  

Also, I do know that when I was taking them legitimately, the Dr. did switch me from Lortab 10/500 to Norco 10/325 because he felt the use of high doses of tylenol over a long period of time could cause damage and wanted to minimize the tylenol I was taking.  For that reason, depending on how long she's been on them/expects to be on them, she may want to switch from vics to norco.  

I hope it didn't come out wrong...it was not my intention.

Peace
