Unintentional administration of increased acetaminophen content could result in liver toxicity, especially in patients on other acetaminophen containing medications, patients with liver dysfunction, or people who consume >3 alcoholic beverages per day. Moreover, taking a higher dose of hydrocodone than intended could result in an increase in the severity or frequency of side effects, such as sedation or respiratory depression, particularly in elderly patients, severe kidney or liver impairment, or those that are taking certain sedatives and antidepressants.

Hydrocodone Bitartrate and Acetaminophen 10mg/500mg Tablets are indicated for the relief of moderate to moderately severe pain.
