What should I do if I accidentally take too much Xodol?

If you take too much of the prescription pain medication Xodol (hydrocodone and acetaminophen), call your doctor or 911 right away. Excessive doses of Xodol can cause dangerously slowed breathing and heartbeat, flaccid muscles, cold and/or clammy skin, stupor, coma, serious liver damage, kidney damage and even heart attack and death. Do not wait until you develop symptoms to seek medical help. You may need to go to the hospital and be monitored carefully to make sure your breathing is stable and to check your kidney, liver and heart function.
