From this study (4 weeks ago):
Severe depression (suicidal thoughts, inability to do anything, extremely dark/unhappy thoughts) while on Norco (5/325) for a few days, which lasted until I stopped using Norco. After I stopped taking the Norco a few sdays ago I still feel depressed, but symptoms are not nearly as bleak. I have never had depression in my 51 years prior to this experience...really scary!
