Hydrocodone is a narcotic drug commonly found in prescription pain medications. It is always used in combination products, along with at least one other active ingredient (such as acetaminophen); it is not available by itself. The medication comes in tablet, capsule, or liquid form, and is usually taken every four hours as needed for pain. Potential side effects include drowsiness, vomiting, and constipation.
Tramadol is approved for the treatment of moderate to moderately severe pain. The drug comes in tablet form and is typically taken every four to six hours as needed. Because it works in a similar manner as morphine, the abuse potential is significant; tramadol may not be suitable for someone who has a history of drug or alcohol abuse. Possible side effects include headaches, drowsiness, and nausea.
