Used to relieve moderate to severe pain, this combination medication. It has an opioid (narcotic) pain reliever (hydrocodone) and an acetaminophen (acetaminophen) pain reliever. Hydrocodone works in the brain to change the feeling and response of your body to pain. Acetaminophen is also capable of reducing fever.
Due to an increased risk of serious side effects (such as slow / shallow breathing) this product is not recommended for use in children younger than 6 years.
