Comments from related studies:
From this study (13 months ago):
Within an hour of taking Norco (10/325), I literally pass out. I cannot keep my eyes open. Unless I force myself to run around (cleaning house, doing errands, etc), I will fall asleep. This symptom only started this week. I have been taking Norco for 9 weeks now, off and on and it never had this affect on me. I have not changed the dosage and I take it as prescribed. I am worried something else might be going on.
From this study (5 years ago):

I stay extremely sleepy most all of the time no matter how much sleep I get or don't get. I lose focus very quickly and start dreaming a little when I close my eyes for a few seconds. I fall asleep at my desk at work, while driving, while standing up, while talking on the phone, while in the bathroom, etc...
