The acetaminophen in vicodin is an antiinflammatory so it will make breathing easier if you have any swelling or irritation along the respiratory tract. However the hydrocodone depresses breathing function neurally, and it gets worse the more you take. The analgesic effects of both drugs will make breathing easier if you are experiencing pain when you draw breath. Hope this provides info on the situation you're in, may you breathe easy again.
