Can I use Xodol if I have a history of seizures?

If you have a history of seizures, talk to your doctor before taking Xodol (hydrocodone and acetaminophen), a drug prescribed to relieve pain. Xodol may raise your risk of seizures, especially if you take excessive amounts of it. If your doctor does prescribe Xodol for you after you discuss your history of seizures, it's important to take the drug exactly as your doctor prescribes. Do not take a larger dose, take it more frequently or take it for a longer period of time than your doctor recommends.
