More Information on Interactions With Hydrocodone/APAP

Alcohol
You should avoid alcohol while taking hydrocodone/APAP. Alcohol interacts with the hydrocodone component, potentially increasing the risk of serious side effects, such as extreme drowsiness, confusion, memory loss, or difficulty breathing.

Combining an antidepressant with hydrocodone/APAP could increase your risk of side effects, such as drowsiness, confusion, memory loss, or difficulty breathing. Serious side effects may also occur. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking hydrocodone/APAP with an antidepressant, as you may need to be monitored more closely and the dose of your medications may need to be adjusted.
 
Antihistamines
Many antihistamines cause significant drowsiness and can cause serious problems when used in combination with other medications that cause drowsiness, such as hydrocodone/APAP. Check with your healthcare provider before taking hydrocodone/APAP with an antihistamine, including non-prescription antihistamines.
 
Antipsychotic Medications
Combining an antipsychotic medication with hydrocodone/APAP can increase your risk of side effects, such as drowsiness, confusion, memory loss, or difficulty breathing. Serious side effects may also occur. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking hydrocodone/APAP with an antipsychotic medication.
