Hycodan How to Take

Hycodan (Hydrocodone) belongs to the family of medications known as antitussives (cough suppressants). Hycodan (Hydrocodone) is used to control coughing that is exhausting and nonproductive (nothing is coughed up). It works on the brain to decrease the urge to cough. Hycodan (Hydrocodone) is a narcotic medication and therefore can be habit-forming if taken for long periods of time.

Hycodan (Hydrocodone) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Hycodan (Hydrocodone) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Hycodan (Hydrocodone) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Hycodan (Hydrocodone) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Hycodan (Hydrocodone), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Hycodan (Hydrocodone) without consulting your doctor.

Abdominal (stomach) conditions: Hycodan (Hydrocodone), like other narcotic medications may make the diagnosis of abdominal conditions more difficult or it may worsen these conditions. If you have abdominal problems discuss with your doctor how Hycodan (Hydrocodone) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Hycodan (Hydrocodone), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Breathing: Hycodan (Hydrocodone) can suppress breathing. Children are more likely to experience serious breathing problems, including death. For this reason, Hycodan (Hydrocodone) should not be given to children less than 6 years old. If you are at risk for breathing difficulties – for example, if you have Asthma – discuss with your doctor how Hycodan (Hydrocodone) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Hycodan (Hydrocodone), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Constipation: Hycodan (Hydrocodone) can be very constipating. Eating a high-fibre diet and following good bowel habits will help to minimize this effect. If you develop constipation easily or have chronic constipation, discuss with your doctor how Hycodan (Hydrocodone) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Hycodan (Hydrocodone), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Dependence and withdrawal: Hycodan (Hydrocodone) contains Hycodan (Hydrocodone). Physical dependence, psychological dependence, and abuse have occurred with the use of Hycodan (Hydrocodone). People with a history of past or current Substance Use Problems may be at greater risk of developing abuse or addiction while taking Hycodan (Hydrocodone). Abuse is not a problem with people who require Hycodan (Hydrocodone) for pain relief. If you suddenly stop taking Hycodan (Hydrocodone), you may experience withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety, sweating, trouble sleeping, shaking, pain, nausea, tremors, Diarrhea, and hallucinations. If you have been taking Hycodan (Hydrocodone) for a while, it should be stopped gradually as directed by your doctor.

Head injury: People with head injuries or increased pressure in the head may have a higher risk of experiencing side effects (breathing problems) or worsening of their condition while taking Hycodan (Hydrocodone). Discuss with your doctor how Hycodan (Hydrocodone) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Hycodan (Hydrocodone), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Other medical conditions: People about to undergo surgery of the biliary tract should use caution while taking Hycodan (Hydrocodone) as it may worsen their condition. Hycodan (Hydrocodone) will worsen the effects of acute alcohol intoxication and delirium tremens.

Sedation with other medications: Since the sedating effects of Hycodan (Hydrocodone) are additive to those of other sedating medications, avoid drinking alcohol or taking sleeping pills, sedatives, psychotherapeutic agents, or other medications with sedating effects while you're taking Hycodan (Hydrocodone). Tell your doctor about all of the medications you take.

Pregnancy: Hycodan (Hydrocodone) should not be used during pregnancy unless the benefits outweigh the risks. Hycodan (Hydrocodone) crosses into the placenta, where it can affect the developing baby.

Withdrawal signs include irritability and excessive crying, tremors, hyperactive reflexes, increased respiratory rate, increased stools, sneezing, yawning, vomiting, and Fever.

Breast-feeding: It is not known if Hycodan (Hydrocodone) passes into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are taking Hycodan (Hydrocodone), it may affect your baby. Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.
