In brief: Any cough medicine
Hydrocodone is a scheduled substance (controlled by dea) just under category of morphine.
In other words, it's potent stuff, and addictive, too. We don't allow any equivalent alternatives over-the-counter. Instead, you're limited to much weaker but readily available cough medications, like Guaifenesin & dextromethorphan.
