Hydrocodone is classified as a narcotic pain reliever. Many times it is used in combination with acetaminophen to create a more potent pain reliever designed for moderate to severe pain.

In 2007, the FDA began to crack down on cough suppressants containing hydrocodone that were no approved for use by the agency. The FDA ordered companies manufacturing the unapproved medicines to stop making and dispersing them.

Some medicines were being marketed for young children, even though cough suppressants with hydrocodone were never approved for children younger than two.

Hydrocodone has also been thought to cause fetal harm when taken by pregnant women. Some of these side effects include cleft lip, low birth weight, hydrocephaly, gastroschisis, malnourishment, spina bifida, and heart defects.
