Taking the pain reliever Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) with selegiline (Atapryl, Carbex and others), a medication used primarily to treat Parkinson's disease that's in a class of drugs called monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors, may intensify the effects of either drug and increase the likelihood of certain side effects. In fact, this is true of any MAO inhibitor, so make sure your doctor knows about any and all drugs and supplements you take before you being using Norco so that he or she can decide if Norco is safe for you to take, and if so, what dosage, timing and frequency is best.
