Zydone Drug Interactions

Benzodiazepines
Taking Zydone in combination with a benzodiazepine might increase your risk of side effects, such as drowsiness, confusion, memory loss, or difficulty breathing. Serious side effects may also occur. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking Zydone with any benzodiazepines.
 
Other Opiates or Narcotics
Use extreme caution when combining Zydone with other narcotics or opiates, as serious side effects could occur. You should only use these medications together with your healthcare provider's approval and supervision.
 
Other Products With Acetaminophen
When taking Zydone, you should limit your total daily dose of acetaminophen (from all sources combined) to no more than 4 grams (4000 mg) per day. The acetaminophen content of Zydone is 300 mg per tablet. Taking too much acetaminophen could lead to serious liver damage or even death.
 
Watch for any other sources of acetaminophen, including other prescription pain relievers and many over-the-counter products, such as Tylenol. To be safe, all other acetaminophen products should be avoided while you are taking Zydone, unless you are extremely careful to limit your total acetaminophen use (from all sources added together) to 4 grams per day.
 
Sleep Medications
Zydone can cause significant drowsiness, and combining it with a sleep medication could lead to dangerous effects. In general, Zydone should not be used in combination with sleep medications, unless your healthcare provider specifically recommends that you do so.
