Absolutely. : It's very important to keep adult meds away from kids and teens. Hycodan (hydrocodone) contains a narcotic that when ingested could give a "high", but it could also make people feel sick, nauseated, faint, groggy, have shallow breathing. Used over a long period of time, people get dependent, meaning they get withdrawal symptoms when stopping. It's a medicine to be used with caution.
