How can you taper off of hydrocodone?

With medical help. Depends on how much hydrocodone you are taking, and for what. If there is a pain problem, it will usually be necessary to find other ways to treat the pain. Short-acting drugs like hydrocodone are very hard to come off because of their short half-life, and substituting longer acting opioids (like Buprenorphine and methadone) is the way doctors usually help people off these meds.
