All three have 10 mg of hydrocodone. Norco 10/325 contains 325 mg of tylenol (acetaminophen) in each pill, while the other two have 500 mg.

Yes: Yes, one is a narcotic pain medication and one is an NSAID. They should not interact. I obviously don't know the particulars of your case, but narcotics are highly addictive and the cdc has just classified narcotic addiction as an epidemic sweeping the country with more deaths attributed to them than even drugs like cocaine; so you would do well to consider other options. ...Read more

Not likely: Although brain tumor or abscess are not likely in your case, if you're having very severe head discomfort unlike anything you've ever experienced, I recommend that you have an examination in the hospital emergency room. You may be having simple neuralgia which is not serious, but it's best to have an examination and,if felt advisable, appropriate tests will be ordered. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
