Hydracodone is a common misspelling of hydrocodone.

What is hydrocodone (hydracodone)?


Hydrocodone (hydracodone) is a narcotic pain reliever (opiate-type) that acts on certain centers in the brain to relieve moderate to severe pain. Hydrocodone (hydracodone) is normally combined with other pain relievers such as acetaminophen. Hydrocodone (hydracodone) may also be used to suppress a cough.

Hydrocodone (hydracodone) dosage is based on your medical condition and response to therapy. Pain medications work best in relieving pain before it becomes severe. Once the pain becomes intense, the medication is not as effective in relieving it.

Before taking hydrocodone (hydracodone), tell your doctor if you are allergic to it; or to other narcotics (e.g., morphine, codeine); or if you have any other allergies.

Hydrocodone (hydracodone) may make you dizzy or drowsy; use caution engaging in activities requiring alertness such as driving or using machinery. Avoid alcoholic beverages because they may increase the risk of side effects of this medicine.
