Other names for Xodol
Xodol is a combination medicine containing hydrocodone and acetaminophen. It’s used to relieve moderate-to-severe pain when other pain medications haven’t worked. Because Xodol contains hydrocodone, an opioid, the drug has a high risk of addiction.
Repeated misuse can cause a number of side effects or a fatal overdose, at worse. The combination drug is often prescribed when other pain medications haven’t worked. It works by blocking pain signals in the brain. Taking Xodol without a prescription can have life-threatening consequences. If you combine Xodol with alcohol or other drugs that cause drowsiness, you increase your risk of experiencing fatal side effects.
The more you use Xodol, the more tolerance you develop to the drug. This can make you want to take more in order to achieve the desired effect or high you’re seeking. This could lead to an overdose.

Xodol, or the combination of hydrocodone bitartrate and acetaminophen, was initially developed as an alternative treatment for severe pain. When non-opioid pain relievers aren’t working as expected, Xodol tablets are prescribed to help manage pain. Like many opioids, Xodol works by blocking pain receptors in the brain and providing temporary relief.
Take Xodol exactly as directed by your doctor or pharmacist.
Xodol is usually taken by mouth in the form of a white tablet. A single, adult dose is one-or-two 5 mg/ 300 mg tablets that usually last four-to-six hours. Medical experts recommend taking the hydrocodone-acetaminophen combination with a glass of water, with or without food.
Research suggests that some of these symptoms will ease on their own once a person lies down. If any of these side effects become severe, immediately call a doctor.
