DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
It is important that HYCODAN (hydrocodone bitartrate and homatropine methylbromide) oral solution is measured with an accurate measuring device (see PRECAUTIONS - Information for Patients). A household teaspoon is not an accurate measuring device and could lead to overdosage, especially when a half a teaspoon is to be measured. It is strongly recommended that an accurate measuring device be used. A pharmacist can provide an appropriate measuring device and can provide instructions for measuring the correct dose.
