Vicodin (Hydrocodone or dihydrocodeinone, not to be confused with dihydrocodeine) is most commonly seen as a white tablet with the name “Vicodin,” “Vicodin ES,” or “Vicodin HP” imprinted on one side. It shares its characteristics with many other drugs in chemistry and form; such drugs are also pain killers and may be marketed as Anexsia, Anolor DH5, Bancap HC, Dolacet, Lorcet 10/650, Lorcet HD, Lorcet Plus, Lortab, Lortab 10, Lortab 5/500, Lortab 7.5/500, Lortab Elixir, Norco, T-Gesic, Vicodin, Vicodin ES, Vicodin HP, and Zydone.
Side effects for Vicodin include an allergic reaction, weak breathing, seizures, clammy skin, severe weakness, dizziness, unconsciousness, yellowing of eyes or skin, unusual fatigue, bleeding, or bruising, constipation, dry mouth, nausea, vomiting, decreased appetite, muscle twitches, sweating, itching, hearing loss, decreased urination, and decreased sex drive. Vicodin (in terms of hydrocodone) also has depressant effects on the central nervous system. However, some of the less mundane effects can be desirable effects that are sought after by many drug addict victims. Those effects include a great euphoria and drowsiness, as well as slowing the pulse. Vicodin has also been linked to causing stomach ulcers
