In brief: Yes for short term

It is important to know the cause.
Hycodan (hydrocodone) is good for short term therapy which is all one needs for acute cough lasting one or two weeks. Anything lasting > 4 weeks requires a proper evaluation to find the cause and treat the cause. This may need a pulmonology consultation to get to the root of the cause.

In brief: Yes

The opioid component may help your cough.
It would be advised that you try a non opioid cough suppresant first.
