BIG changes with hydrocodone (Vicodin, etc)

Please see the April 2014 FDA reminder to discontinue prescribing and dispensing prescription combination drug products that contain more than 325 mg of acetaminophen per dosing unit.

You'll see BIG changes with hydrocodone (Vicodin, etc)...phaseouts, new formulations, and a move to reclassify combos as CII.

These changes are to increase safety and decrease abuse.

Phaseout of products with MORE THAN 325 mg of acetaminophen per tab or cap is an effort to decrease liver injury due to acetaminophen.
