What foods, medications or activities should I avoid while taking Avinza?

Because the combination of narcotic pain medication and alcohol can be dangerous or fatal, you should not drink alcoholic beverages while taking Avinza. This is also true of any products that may contain alcohol in their list of ingredients. Since Avinza may cause drowsiness, you should not drive or use dangerous machinery until you know how the medication affects you. Avinza can have negative interactions with many medications, and you may need to avoid certain drugs while you are taking Avinza. Be sure to speak with your doctor or pharmacist about all of the drugs you are taking, both prescription and over-the-counter.
