Can I use Zydone if I am taking isoniazid?

If you are taking isoniazid, a drug prescribed to treat or prevent tuberculosis, talk to your doctor before taking the prescription pain reliever Zydone (hydrocodone and acetaminophen). Research indicates that the combination of isoniazid and the acetaminophen in Zydone may raise your risk for serious liver damage. Be sure your doctor is aware that you take isoniazid. In fact, before you take Zydone, you should give your doctor and pharmacist a list of your other medicines and supplements.
