Vicodin is an Opiate, a modified version of chemicals in the poppy plant, codeine if I'm not mistaken is modified into hydrocodone. So yes, it is a narcotic. The word narcotic has been incorrectly used for so long that doctors avoid using that word now, instead saying that it's an Opiate or Opioid, but never Narcotic. After the FDA called cocaine a narcotic, it pretty much killed the meaning of the word (from the original meaning of Opioid). Now it just means anything that the fda deams as being bad! For example, I think that pot of all things is called a Narcotic!!!
