Hydrocodone Street Names

Hydrocodone Street Names

Hydrocodone is in a class of medications called opiate (narcotic) analgesics as well as a class of medications called antitussives. Antitussives are used to suppress coughing. It is used to either relieve moderate to severe pain, or it is taken to relieve coughing. In both cases, hydrocodone helps the patient by going straight to the brain and changing the way it responds to things. For pain, it changes the way the brain responds to pain. With coughing, hydrocodone decreases the activity in the brain that causes coughing.

Hydrocodone is given in correlation with other ingredients, so it is important to look up all the other ingredients in order to better understand your medication. Hydrocodone may be habit-forming, so it is important to only take what your doctor prescribes. Make sure to keep it stored away from children and people with a history of hydrocodone drug abuse to ensure the safety of everyone. Keep the medication in the bottle it originally came in, clearly labeled so there is no confusion.
