Palladone and alcohol have been found to be a potentially lethal combination. The risk is increased with higher doses of the drug. Palladone, which is prescribed to patients with moderate to severe pain who need continuous relief, has been pulled off the market until the safety issues can be addressed.
Symptoms of the interaction include slow breathing, seizures, dizziness, weakness, loss of consciousness, confusion, coma, tiredness, cold and clammy hands, and small pupils.
I don’t know how commonly Palladone is used for headache patients, but I’m blogging about it just in case one of you happens to take it.
