Description

LP102596-6   Norhydrocodone
Norhydrocodone is a metabolite of hydrocodone, a narcotic analgesic related to codeine, but more potent and more addicting by weight. It is used also as cough suppressant. Drug testing of pain patients provides objective information to health specialists regarding patient compliance, diversion, and concurrent illicit drug use. The interpretation of test results can be difficult however because of complex biotransformations of parent drug to metabolites that are also available commercially and may be abused. Additional testing for normetabolites, such as norhydrocodone, provides conclusive evidence that the parent drug was consumed and is helpful in interpreting the opiate drug source, and also reduces potential false negatives.
