  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Advice & Tips: My liver enzymes soared, most likely due to a reaction to Cefdinir (an antibiotic) so on the advice of my doctor, I eliminated as much meds that contain Tylenol as possible. We switched from Hydrocodone to Oxycodone for that reason. I think it was in January 2013, but I'm not 100% sure of the date.
