Vicodin™ and other hydrocodone products: Hydrocodone is a semi-synthetic opioid similar in effects to morphine. Vicodin™ is hydrocodone mixed with acetaminophen. Hydrocodone products, when abused, can lead to dependence, tolerance, and addiction. Vicodin™ is one of the most frequently prescribed medications for pain. Other products include Vicoprophen™, Tussionex™, and Lortab™ .
Like Oxycontin, this is generally a type of drug abused by someone who has already been prescribed the drug for pain control. Withdrawal symptoms such as a craving for the drug and an increase in pain are two of the most common withdrawal symptoms. Slowly weaning off of Vicodin is strongly recommended.
