In brief: No

Opioids usually have the opposite effect, they are calming or sedating.
However, many people have "idiosyncratic reactions to medications, drugs, even foods which cannot really be explained. If they cause you to have rage attacks, and yet you keep taking them, I am concerned for you. If a doctor prescribed the hydrocodone, you should talk to that person. If it was not prescribed, don't take it.
