Lorcet Drug Interactions

Lorcet Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Lorcet is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Alcoholic Beverages
You should avoid alcohol while taking Lorcet. Alcohol interacts with the narcotic component of Lorcet (hydrocodone), potentially increasing the risk of serious side effects, such as extreme drowsiness, confusion, memory loss, or difficulty breathing. Alcohol also interacts with the acetaminophen (Tylenol®) component of Lorcet, increasing the risk of liver damage (see Tylenol and Alcohol for more information).
 
Antidepressants
Taking Lorcet with an antidepressant 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 Lorcet with an antidepressant, as you may need to be monitored more closely.
 
Antihistamines
Many antihistamines cause significant drowsiness and can cause serious problems when used in combination with other medications that cause drowsiness, such as Lorcet. Check with your healthcare provider before taking Lorcet with an antihistamine, including non-prescription antihistamines in cold/cough, allergy, sleep, and motion sickness products.
 
Antipsychotic Medications
Combining an antipsychotic medication with Lorcet 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 Lorcet with an antipsychotic medication.
 
Barbiturates
Combining a barbiturate with Lorcet 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 Lorcet with a barbiturate.
