It may get into your system a bit faster, but otherwise I don't think it would hurt. It would taste awful tho. lolol
Hydrocodone is not time release in the US so as long as it is not a time release formula, it can be broken or crushed. Chewing it up WILL taste awful as KM pointed out. If you have difficulty swallowing pills, it does come in a liquid form (your doc will have to order liquid) or you can crush the pill with a pill crusher and add it to a bite of applesauce, jelly or pudding (something soft that you can swallow without chewing) and swallow it down in one bite.
Yes just crush it up and put it in some apple sauce or pudding.
