The opium poppy contains several alkaloids which include morphine, thebaine and oripavine. Oxycontin (oxycodone) is made from the alkaloid thebaine, endocet is a combination of oxycodone and acetominophen (tylenol) and vicodin and norco are hydrocodone with acetominophen. Hydrocodone is made from codeine or thebaine. So to answer your question, the medications you mentioned are not from morphine but are very similar to morphine in that they are opiates.
Hope this helps,
