How can I minimize the side effects of Ibudone?

To minimize the side effects of Ibudone (hydrocodone and ibuprofen), a strong pain reliever, take it exactly as directed and at the dose prescribed. Do not drink alcohol while taking Ibudone, because the combination can increase your risk for serious side effects.

To reduce the risk of constipation, a common side effect of this drug, drink six to eight glasses of water a day. Don't take laxatives without checking first with your doctor.

Certain medical conditions can make it more dangerous to take Ibudone, so before you take it, give your doctor a complete medical history. Ibudone can interact with a number of medications, so you should also tell your doctor about all your other drugs (prescription or over-the-counter), as well as any herbal or dietary supplements you take. Once you're on Ibudone, don't start taking any other drugs or supplements without talking with your doctor first.
