What is Vicodin (Vicoden)?

Vicodin (Vicoden) is a narcotic analgesic and is used to treat moderate to moderately severe pain. It contains a combination of two medicines - acetaminophen and hydrocodone.

Hydrocodone is in a group of drugs called narcotic pain relievers. Acetaminophen is a less potent pain reliever that increases the effects of hydrocodone.
