Were you looking for information about Vicodin? Vicodine is a common misspelling of Vicodin.
Vicodin® (hydrocodone/APAP) is a prescription drug licensed to treat certain types of pain. The medication is classified as a controlled substance and is commonly abused. Common side effects seen with Vicodin include drowsiness, nausea, and constipation. Conditions you should let your healthcare provider know about before you take it are liver disease, a head injury, or any history of drug or alcohol abuse.
This medication may not be suitable for everyone. For example, people who have a severe head injury, lung disease, or liver disease may not be able to take Vicodin. In addition, people who have a history of drug or alcohol abuse may be at more risk for Vicodin addiction.
