About Hydrocodone Bitartrate, Acetaminophen
Several hydrocodone and acetaminophen combination products are available. They come as the brand names Dolorex® Forte, Duocet®, Hycet®, Hydrogesic®, Lortab®, Maxidone®, Norco®, Stagesic, Vicodin®, Xodol®, Zamicet®, and Zolvit®.

You should store hydrocodone products at room temperature.

If you take hydrocodone for a long time, you may notice that it does not work as well as it once did. Talk to your doctor if you think that hydrocodone is not working to relieve your symptoms the way that it has in the past.

If you miss a dose of hydrocodone, take it as soon as you can, unless it's almost time for your next dose. If it is almost time for your next dose of hydrocodone, skip the missed dose and take your next dose of hydrocodone at your regular time.

When you first start taking hydrocodone, avoid drinking alcohol until you know how hydrocodone affects your ability to stay alert.

Hydrocodone may make you drowsy or dizzy. Do not drive or operate machinery until you know how hydrocodone affects your body.

Your doctor may tell you not to drink alcohol at all while taking hydrocodone and acetaminophen, because high doses of acetaminophen and alcohol can increase the risk of damaging your liver.

Because you may be taking a hydrocodone product that already has acetaminophen, check the labels of any over-the-counter medicines you are using to see if any have acetaminophen in them. It is important that you don't take extra acetaminophen.

You can become physically addicted to the hydrocodone. This is more likely to happen if you take hydrocodone for a long time. Do not suddenly stop taking hydrocodone if you have taken it for quite some time, because you could have severe withdrawal symptoms. Your doctor will want to tell you how to reduce your dosage of hydrocodone so that you can avoid withdrawal symptoms.
