    Hydrocodone/paracetamol (also known as hydrocodone/acetaminophen) is the combination of the pain medications hydrocodone and paracetamol (acetaminophen). It is used to treat moderate to severe pain. It is taken by mouth. Recreational use is common in the United States.Common side effects include dizziness, sleepiness, constipation, and vomiting. Serious side effects include addiction, decreased rate of breathing, low blood pressure, serotonin syndrome, severe allergic reactions, and liver failure. Use during pregnancy may harm the fetus. Use with alcohol is not recommended. Hydrocodone works by binding to the mu-opioid receptor. How paracetamol works is unclear but may involve blocking the creation of prostaglandins.Hydrocodone/paracetamol was approved for medical use in the United States in 1982. In the United States, it is a schedule II controlled substance. In 2020, it was the sixteenth most commonly prescribed medication in the United States, with more than 30 million prescriptions.

Examples of Vicodin in a Sentence

  1. The Detroit rapper:

    It's no secret I had a drug problem, if I was to give you a number of Vicodin I would actually take in a day ? Anywhere between 10 to 20. Valium, Ambien, the numbers got so high I don't even know what I was taking.

  2. Ricky Williams:

    I played a long time ago, and I played for a long time. So things have changed a lot when I first got into the league, my rookie year, a Hall of Fame player on the team, he’s in the Hall of Fame now, invited me over to his house and he gave me the speech about how to take care of yourself in the NFL. And he pulled out some cannabis, crushed it up, split a blunt, opened it up, put the cannabis in there, took a Vicodin, crushed it up, sprinkled the Vico in there, rolled up the blunt and passed it to me. That was a vet, teaching me as a rookie, how to take care of Ricky Williams in the NFL.

  3. Grant Woods:

    This is something that we've seen across the country from the most educated, most sophisticated patient to the least, and we're talking a matter of days not a matter of weeks or months or years. They knew—certainly should have known—that they were going to leave in their wake devastation across this country. Some believe prescription painkiller makers should have known how highly addictive their products were. (Reuters) Woods is helping Ohio sue several prescription painkiller manufacturers and is consulting with several others on their upcoming litigation against the same companies. The basis for their litigation is nearly identical to the strategy used by states against Big Tobacco in the 1990s. Both manufactured a product they allegedly knew to be highly addictive but downplayed the risk to the public. Once hooked, states bore the treatment cost of the resulting public health epidemic. INDIANA MAN KILLS DOCTOR WHO REFUSED TO PRESCRIBE WIFE OPIOIDS I think the responsibility goes to the doctors, goes to the medical rep, goes to the pharmaceutical companies, said Dr. Howard Samuels, founder of The Hills addiction treatment center in Los Angeles. Fox News spoke to several patients at Samuels’ in-patient facility. All of them told a similar story of receiving a painkiller prescription from their physician for anywhere from 60 to 120 pills of powerful opioids like Oxycontin, Vicodin or Norco. The cause of their pain ranged from an auto accident to a broken ankle. My back – I crushed the bottom three vertebrae, then they prescribed me Oxycontin, said a former high school football player from Ohio. A woman from New Jersey added, I was getting 120 oxy a month. When I told him my pain persisted after a few hours, he upped by dosage. Another patient started on Vicodin, but got so addicted he would buy any type of opioid he could find. The White House Office for National Drug Control Policy says 80 percent of heroin users today started their addiction when doctors prescribed pain killers. (Reuters) A doctor is the best drug dealer you can ever get, said the native Angeleno. Once he knew I had the cash I could get anything. My first prescription was $300, and about $150 a week after that. And when one pharmacy started to get suspicious, he told me where to go. TRUMP'S OPIOID COMMISSION CAN HELP KEEP DEADLY DRUGS OUT OF AMERICA While there is plenty of blame to go around, the 25 lawsuits already filed share similar allegations: - Deceptive ads suggesting opioids were effective treating chronic pain like back injuries; - marketing that downplayed the risk of addiction; - undisclosed use of paid doctors to promote the benefits of opioids - use of front groups to.
