I was given a shot of toradol at noon today for pain and inflammation and the pain is back. is it safe to take a hydrocodon almost 8 hours later?

Toradol AND Hydrocod: The mechanisms of action are completely different.
Toradol is an antinflammatory agent, while Hydrocodone is a narcotic.
There are no interactions. For what reason you require the pain medications, post surgery?, trauma?
please let me know, and the doses prescribed.
