Medically reviewed by Drugs.com. Last updated on Mar 3, 2021.

Generic name: Hydrocodone Bitartrate 10mg, Ibuprofen 200mg
Dosage form: tablet

Carefully consider the potential benefits and risks of XYLON™ and other treatment options before deciding to use XYLON™. Use the lowest effective dose for the shortest duration consistent with individual patient treatment goals (see WARNINGS).

After observing the response to initial therapy with XYLON™, the dose and frequency should be adjusted to suit an individual patient's needs.

For the short-term (generally less than 10 days) management of acute pain, the recommended dose of XYLON™ is one tablet every 4 to 6 hours, as necessary. Dosage should not exceed 5 tablets in a 24-hour period. It should be kept in mind that tolerance to hydrocodone can develop with continued use and that the incidence of untoward effects is dose related.

The lowest effective dose or the longest dosing interval should be sought for each patient (see WARNINGS), especially in the elderly. After observing the initial response to therapy with XYLON™, the dose and frequency of dosing should be adjusted to suit the individual patient's need, without exceeding the total daily dose recommended.
