Hydrocodone is a synthetic opiate derived from codeine.  It is the primary active ingredient in Vicodin.  It lessens both pain and the tendency to cough.  It is not commercially available in pure form and is always mixed with another analgesic, usually acetaminophen.

Almost all of the hydrocodone produced in the world is consumed in the United States.
