User Comments about Hydrocodone
27 May 2013 When used properly hydrocodone is a useful pain reliever, however my concern is its addictive qualities

15 Feb 2012 I'd prefer to just take an OTC drug like advil which has less side effects for me than hydrocodone.

02 Jan 2012 works very well for pain. Must eat before taking medication. Severely decreased mental clarity. Makes me very sleepy.

20 Sep 2011 Hydrocodone did alleviate my back pain. I unfortunately became reliant on the drug to perform everyday actions. Anyone on this medication needs to be aware that there are serious side effects. The recommended dose is recommended for a reason. It is highly addictive.
