Hydrocodone/APAP and Constipation

Final Thoughts on Hydrocodone/APAP and Constipation

Constipation is a predictable, expected side effect of hydrocodone/APAP. It is so predictable that many healthcare providers recommend that people who take hydrocodone/APAP also take a laxative before any problems occur. As long as you keep taking the drug, constipation will not go away or get better on its own. Contact your healthcare provider right away if your constipation becomes severe or if laxatives do not help.
