Hycodan

What is Hycodan?

Hydrocodone is a semi-synthetic opioid synthesized from codeine, one of the opioid alkaloids found in the opium poppy. It is a narcotic analgesic used orally as an antitussive/cough suppressant, but also commonly taken orally for relief of moderate to severe pain.

Hydrocodone is prescribed predominantly within the United States, with the International Narcotics Control Board reporting that 99% of the worldwide supply in 2007 was consumed in the United States. The Administrative Controlled Substances Code Number (ACSCN) for hydrocodone is 9193 and the aggregate production quota for 2014 is 99,625 kilograms in the U.S.
