Nausea and vomiting are among the more commonly reported side effects of Zydone. These are not signs you are allergic to the drug. Signs of an allergic reaction can include difficulty breathing, unexplained swelling, or a rash. If you experience any of these potentially serious Zydone side effects, contact your healthcare provider right away.
An Introduction to Zydone Side EffectsAs with any medicine, side effects are possible with Zydone® (hydrocodone/APAP). However, not everyone who takes the medication will experience side effects. Most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are easily treated by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Zydone. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list of Zydone side effects with you.)
- Lightheadedness or dizziness
- Mental clouding
Many people consider themselves "allergic" to Zydone if they experience nausea and vomiting due to the medication. However, this is a common side effect and is not a true allergy. In many cases, this side effect goes away as a person continues to use Zydone. Taking the medication with food may help prevent or reduce nausea and vomiting.
