How Should Hycet Be Stored?

Hycet should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Keep Hycet and all other medications out of the reach of children. Because Hycet is a highly desired drug of abuse, make sure to keep it in a safe place.
 

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose of Hycet?

Hycet is often prescribed "as needed," which means you do not need to take a dose if you do not feel pain. If you forget to take a dose of Hycet and notice significant pain, take your missed dose right away. However, make sure to wait the recommended time before the next dose.
 

Strengths of Hycet

Hycet comes in one strength, 7.5 mg of hydrocodone bitartrate and 325 mg of acetaminophen per 15 mL (per tablespoonful).
