I have stage 4 esophageal cancer, that has mestasized to my liver. My first chemo treatment is tomorrow. The doctor has given me scripts for prochlorperazine 10mg and hdrocodone/APAP 10-325 mg which instructs not to take with the prochlorperazine. I am only taking the hydrocod/APAP now. How much time in between them do I have to leave?
Why can't you take hydrocodone & compazine together and what are the side effects?

The reason for not taking the two together is that the compazine can potentiate the side effects of the hydrocodone. you can have increased dizziness, confusion etc. If your Doctor specifically prescribed you both meds together you should be ok as long as you don't drive or do anything requiring fast reflexes until you know how the meds affect you.
