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.
