This combination medication is used to relieve moderate to severe pain. It
contains an opioid pain reliever (hydrocodone) and a non-opioid pain reliever (acetaminophen).
Hydrocodone works in the brain to change how your body feels and responds to pain.
Acetaminophen can also reduce a fever.
This product is not recommended for use in children younger than 6 years due to an
increased risk of serious side effects (such as slow/shallow breathing).
The dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. In children, the dosage is also based on weight.
Do not increase your dose, take the medication more frequently, or take it for a longer time than prescribed. Properly
stop the medication when so directed.
Pain medications work best if they are used as the first signs of pain occur. If you wait until the pain has worsened,
the medication may not work as well.
