Can I use Xodol if I have a history of liver disease?

If you have a history of liver disease, talk to your doctor before taking the prescription pain medication Xodol (hydrocodone and acetaminophen). You may be at increased risk for liver damage from taking Xodol.

If you do take Xodol, your doctor may want to monitor you especially closely and periodically test your liver function. You should be sure not to take any other drugs that contain acetaminophen, because high levels of acetaminophen raise your risk for liver damage. Do not drink alcohol, because the combination may increase your risk of liver damage and other problems.
