marinedad, Yes hydro is a derivative of codeine,though it is a synthetic and hydro doesn't contain codeine. taking the two together is dangerous in that both contain large amounts of acetaminophen which wreaks havoc on your liver. Be careful mixing medications there are many contraindications. semper fi! Hope this helps and take care, Julie
