Zydone

When and How to Take This Medication

General considerations for when and how to take Zydone include the following:
 
  • The medication comes in tablet form. It is taken by mouth, usually every four to six hours as needed for pain.
     
  • It is extremely important that you not exceed the maximum recommended daily dose, as this could lead to overdose symptoms or to poisoning from the acetaminophen component, which can cause liver failure.
     
  • It is best to take Zydone with food, as this may help reduce nausea and vomiting.
     
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Do not increase your dose without your healthcare provider's approval. Do not suddenly stop taking Zydone, especially if you have taken it regularly for more than several weeks.
     

Dosing Information

The dose of Zydone your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • Other medications you are taking
  • How sensitive you are to Zydone
  • Other medical conditions you may have.
     
As is always the case, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
