Norco as Name Brand for Lortab
I asked to have my lortab rx filled with the brand name which I trhought was Lortab but what I got was Norco. Is Norco a brand name for Lortab?
Ericajane - Lortab is a brand name as is norco... If you request this, the pharmacy can fill it as lortab, however if you do not request that, the prescription that you should be receiving is hydrocodone bitartrate and acetaminophen (it might also say hydrocodone apap) and then two sets of numbers, I believe it should be 10/500. That means that you are getting 10 mg of hydrocodone bitartrate and 500 mg of acetaminophen. Norco comes in different doses but the first component is what separates it from lortab. Norco is made with hydrocodone, not hydrocodone bitartrate. I hope this helps!!!
