Brief Answer:
no home remedy is there

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX,

Norco (acetaminophen and hydrocodone) contains opiate. After 11 years of long intake of opiate withdrawals are likely there. Unfortunately no home remedy will help in this case.

At present you can restart narco if you have and gradually taper the dose after consulting your doctor. Or your doctor can prescribe you tramadol.

Hope I have answered your query, I will be happy to help further.
