This drug is not right for everyone, and it can react negatively with certain medications. In order to determine if a Lorcet product is right for you, your healthcare provider needs information on your complete medical history and any other medicines you are taking -- including nonprescription products, vitamins, and supplements.
In addition, you must be careful not to exceed the maximum recommended daily dose, as this could lead to overdose symptoms or to poisoning from the acetaminophen component, which can cause liver failure.
