Lorcet Drug Interactions

Benzodiazepines
Taking Lorcet in combination with a benzodiazepine might 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 any benzodiazepines.
 
Other Acetaminophen Products
When taking Lorcet, you should limit your total daily dose of acetaminophen (from all sources combined) to no more than 4 grams (4000 mg) per day. The acetaminophen content of Lorcet is 650 mg per Lorcet 10/650® or Lorcet Plus® tablets and 500 mg per Lorcet-HD® capsule. Taking too much acetaminophen could lead to serious liver damage or even death.
 
Watch for any other sources of acetaminophen, including other prescription pain relievers and many over-the-counter products, such as Tylenol. To be safe, all other acetaminophen products should be avoided while you are taking Lorcet, unless you are extremely careful to limit your total acetaminophen use (from all sources added together) to 4 grams per day.
 
Other Narcotics or Opiates
Use extreme caution when combining Lorcet with other narcotics or opiates, as serious side effects could occur. You should only use these medications together with your healthcare provider's approval and supervision.
 
Sleep Medications
Lorcet can cause significant drowsiness, and combining it with a sleep medication could lead to dangerous effects. In general, Lorcet should not be used in combination with sleep medications, unless your healthcare provider specifically recommends that you do so.
