Is it safe to drive a car if I am taking Zydone?

If you are taking the prescription painkiller Zydone (hydrocodone and acetaminophen), you should wait to drive a car or operate any potentially dangerous machinery until you know how the drug affects you. Doctors prescribe Zydone to treat moderate to moderately severe pain. In some people, the drug can also cause dizziness, sedation, fuzzy thinking and other side effects that could affect how well you drive. Talk to your doctor. If you need to take Zydone for only a short period of time, you might try to arrange your schedule so that you don't have to drive while you're on the drug.
