Pain Home > Hydrocodone/APAP
Hydrocodone/APAP is a combination medication commonly used to treat short-term pain that is moderate to moderately severe. The drug comes in capsule, syrup, and tablet forms, and is typically taken as needed for pain, although some healthcare providers recommend that it be taken every four to six hours for pain. Strict rules regulate the sale and use of hydrocodone/APAP because of the narcotic component in it. Possible side effects include constipation, drowsiness, and nausea.
