  • From this study (4 months ago):

  • Sudden severe headache after taking Norco orally. If there is an injectable I
    could have been given it in the hospital. Don't know. Luckly the headache lasted only half an hour or so, not sure on that either. I have never had a
    head ache like it before. Dr's office suggest I take the 2nd one. I refused.
