Hello again,
I was waiting for your reply.

I am sorry for your symptoms.
Anemia is not a contraindication to take hydrocod/acetaminophen.
It can be taken for headache.
If the headache is severe & you do not feel any improvement, I would suggest to take an examination by doctor.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
Wish your early recovery.
Please rate my answer excellent if you are satisfied with it.
