Speak to a healthcare provider or a pharmacist before taking them. They contain hydrocodone, and users are open to the possibility of addiction, abuse, and misuse. Hydrocodone is a Schedule II controlled substance, meaning:

  • It is an opioid agonist, with a high potential for abuse.
  • If abused, the drug may lead to severe psychological or physical dependence.


At the first sign of a possible overdose, call 911 immediately.


Acetaminophen is associated with liver failure, alcoholism, ethanol intoxication, hepatitis, liver damage, and malnutrition. Clinical and laboratory evidence of liver toxicity may not be apparent until 48 to 72 hours post-ingestion. When calculating the maximum daily dose of acetaminophen, consider all sources of acetaminophen, including OTC.

Recovery usually starts with going to rehab.
