2. both have habit forming properties, so taking both will result in abnormal drug seeking behaviour i.e. ADDICTION.
3. using both together will increase side effects such as: dizziness,drowsiness and difficulty in concentration,along with impairment in thinking and judgement.
4. Avoid alcohol, driving,use of machinieries, if taking singly or both.

welcome to heallthcaremagic
Hydromet Hydrocodone is a narcotic cough medicine. You are taking Ambien tranquilizer. Remember that promethazine also causes drowziness, though. Take extra care when sitting or standing.

There is no contraindication between the 2. But both are not over the counter drugs and have to be taken on prescription only. Discuss it with your doctor.
