Vicodin is a brand name for a medication that contains hydrocodone and paracetamol (acetaminophen), used to relive moderate to severe pain. Because Vicodin is a prescription drug, it may only be lawfully used, distributed or possessed if a patient has a valid prescription by an authorized physician. Possessing or distributing Vicodin without a prescription or lawful authority may result in criminal charges. Vicodin is classified as a Schedule II substance.
