Read this should not be taken together because rifampin reduces blow flow and pain med would not work effectively. What pain med do you recommend? I broke arm/elbow.
rifampin hydrocodone LAST THIS IS YOUR INTERACTION BELOW
Applies to: Rifadin (rifampin), Norco (acetaminophen / hydrocodone)
Rifampin may reduce the blood levels of HYDROcodone, which may make the medication less effective in treating your pain. Additionally, if you have been receiving treatment with HYDROcodone, adding rifampin may cause you to experience unpleasant withdrawal symptoms such as watery eyes, runny nose, sneezing, yawning, excessive sweating, goose bumps, fever, chills, flushing, restlessness, irritability, anxiety, depression, pupil dilation, tremor, rapid heart beat, body aches, involuntary twitching and kicking, abdominal cramping, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and weight loss. On the other hand, if you have been receiving both medications, discontinuing rifampin may increase the blood levels of HYDROcodone, which could lead to an overdose. Talk to your doctor if you have any questions or concerns. Your doctor may be able to prescribe alternatives that do not interact, or you may need a dose adjustment or more frequent monitoring to safely use both medications. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
SORRY JUST NOTICED HOW OLD THIS POST IS BUT THE DOCTOR PRESCRIBING THE PAIN MEDICATION WELL KNOW WHAT TO GIVE YOU IF YOU STILL HAVE TO TAKE BOTH AT THIS TIME GIVE THEM A CALL. IF ANY QUESTIONS. Chuck1957
