Norco contains hydrocodone and acetaminophen.
you may be able to find oxycodone which is very similar to hydrocodone in Spain

I need you to confirm the Link Dr David sent me. I need to give this information to my doctor in the US so he can write a subscription for my new doctor in Spain
Pharmacist: Dr. C. Rollins, Pharm. D. replied 1 year ago

I can say that Oxycodone and Hydrocodone while both pain medications they are not the same medication. I will do some research and will get back to you shortly. Thanks for the information.

I sent out several emails to drug manufacturers to see what products they have available in Spain I'm waiting on a reply from a few more. I do believe Teva will have a product but I want to make sure. I will let you know when I get their reply. Sorry for your wait.

Dr Rollins, have you found an answer yet????? this is a day later and need an answer in the next 15 mins, before my doctor appointment thank you
Pharmacist: Dr. C. Rollins, Pharm. D. replied 1 year ago

I am sorry for the delay. I worked on this question for over 2 hours yesterday. I sent emails to several pharmaceutical manufacturers that distribute to Spain. Some have returned my email letting me know they do not have products containing hydrocodone distributed in Spain. I am hopeful that Teva will get back to me as I do believe they will have a medication to help you.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
