Vicodin Indications

Some of the indications for Vicodin® (hydrocodone/APAP) include treating moderate to moderately severe pain. This prescription medication is only approved for use in adults.
Specifically, Vicodin is commonly used to treat short-term pain due to an injury, surgery, or dental procedure. Occasionally, it is used to treat chronic pain, migraines, or other types of recurring, long-term conditions that cause pain. It is often used (or rather, abused) inappropriately, as it contains a narcotic medication.
There are also some possible uses of Vicodin that are not technically approved, but a healthcare provider may still prescribe the medication for these uses. Some of these off-label uses include treating coughing and insomnia. However, these off-label uses are not considered legitimate by most healthcare professionals, as there are more appropriate medications available to treat such conditions.
