Who should not take Hydrocodone/APAP?

People with an allergy to Tylenol or narcotic painkillers should not take hydrocodone-APAP (APAP is an abreviation for acetaminophen). If you are taking the prescription drug naltrexone, you should not take hydrocodone bitartrate and acetaminophen because of the risk of serious interactions. Pregnant women should not take hydrocodone bitartrate and acetaminophen, since their baby can be born addicted to the medication or have its breathing dangerously slowed during delivery.
