Hello, Lobillo! How are you?

Well, I'm sure I don't have to tell you that smoking is always bad for you.

The issues between smoking and taking a narcotic are due to the depression of the central nervous system that the narcotic can cause, it can lower your rate of breathing and smoking tends to make breathing even harder. You may also experience more dizziness than usual.

The FDA lists this medication as being a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

However, if your doctor okays it, just be careful, since you may get dangerously dizzy and watch for any trouble breathing.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Yes, not as severely as actual cigarettes, but it does still have an effect on the lungs and they still contain nicotine.

Are there any other questions or concerns?

they asked about the combination, not your thoughts on an obviously dangerous habit. get off your high horse. There are*no*bad side effects. you dont help when passing along your opinion as factual.
