What should I do if I miss a dose of Norco?

Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) is usually taken as needed and not on a regular dosing schedule, so you can't really miss a dose unless your doctor has told you to take it regularly. If that's the case, take the missed dose as soon as you remember, unless it's within four hours of your next dose. If it is, skip the missed dose and take the next one at the regular time. Do not take a double dose of this prescription pain reliever. Doing so could result in severe side effects.
