Hi,thanks for using healthcare magic

Norco is a combination of acetaminophen and hydrocodone bitartrate and levoquin is a well known antibiotic.
There are a number of drugs that can affect levoquin and some opiates are in this group such as metadone and oxycodone. This is because of an effect on the heart.
Hydrocodone is not known to have this effect and there is no advisory against its use with levaquin like with methadone.

You should consider speaking to your doctor if you remain concerned for additional advice.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
