Pure hydrocodone belongs to the Schedule II drug category, which simply means that it is controlled and use of the drug is highly restricted. However, there are only a few prescription drugs that are made of pure hydrocodone. Most of them available in the market contain only small amounts of hydrocodone mixed with non-narcotic ingredients, such as in Vicodin and Lortab. When so, they are classified to be under the Schedule III categories with expectedly fewer restrictions on distribution and use.There are more than 200 pain killers marketed today that contain hydrocodone - Vicodin, Hycodan, Norco, Lorcet, Lortab, Hydroco, Vicoprofen and Xodol, among many others. They can vary from tablet, capsule to syrup in form. Common side effects of taking drugs with hydrocodone include light-headedness, nausea, drowsiness, vomiting, constipation and euphoria.
