Ultracet Withdrawal and Detox
Just like any new medication, starting treatment with Ultracet may produce side effects for some patients. The most common side effects of Ultracet include nausea, vomiting, constipation, lightheadedness, dizziness, drowsiness, and sweating. Most of these side effects should dissipate with time. If they do not go away or worsen, notify your doctor or pharmacist.
Other more serious side effects, which should be immediately reported to your doctor, include mood changes, agitation, hallucinations, severe stomach or abdominal pain, difficulty urinating, and signs of your adrenal glands not working well such as loss of appetite, unusual tiredness, and weight loss.
Be sure to seek medical attention right away if you experience the following severe Ultracet side effects: fast or irregular heartbeat, severe dizziness, fainting, seizures, and signs of an allergic reaction such as rashes, itching or swelling, and trouble breathing.
This is not a complete list of the possible side effects of Ultracet. If you believe you are experiencing a side effect not mentioned above, contact your doctor for more information.
Substances which may interact with Ultracet include pentazocine, nalbuphine, butorphanol, and naltrexone.
Using MAO inhibitors with Ultracet can cause a serious and possibly fatal drug interaction. Specifically, avoid these MAO inhibitors while taking Ultracet: isocarboxazid, linezolid, methylene blue, moclobemide, phenelzine, procarbazine, rasagiline, safinamide, selegiline, and tranylcypromine. In addition, most MAO inhibitors should not be taken for two weeks before beginning treatment with Ultracet.
Other medications may change the effectiveness of Ultracet. These include quinidine, azole antifungals, HIV medications, macrolide antibiotics, rifamycins, and seizure medications, among others.
Your risk of experiencing serious Ultracet side effects will increase if you take other medications that cause drowsiness or breathing problems. Inform your doctor or pharmacist if you are consuming any of the following substances: codeine, hydrocodone, alcohol, cannabis, sleeping pills, alprazolam, lorazepam, zolpidem, carisoprodol, cyclobenzaprine, cetirizine, and diphenhydramine.
