Drug and food interactions

Major

hydrocodone food

Applies to: hydrocodone / pheniramine / phenylephrine / phenylpropanolamine / pyrilamine

Do not use alcohol or medications that contain alcohol while you are receiving treatment with HYDROcodone.

Likewise, you should avoid consuming grapefruit and grapefruit juice, as this may increase the blood levels and effects of hydrocodone. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you have questions on how to take this or other medications you are prescribed.
