3 doctors agree
In brief: Nausea, drowsiness
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, get constipated.
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.
