Hello from JA.

Yes, there are syrups used for chronic coughs like hycodon, mycodon which contains only hydrocodone.

However, I would like to mention that these are quite addictive and should be taken under prescription only.

With regards,
Dr. Bora.

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
the prescription is written for vicodin. If a person wants the brand name of vicodin - How is the prescription filled? With what medications????
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 5 years ago.
Vicodin contains acetaminophen and hydrocodone. Hydrocodone only comes in combinations with various other drugs such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen, chlorpheniramine and so forth. It does not come alone therefore you cannot have the hydrocodone part of vicodin without any other drug combined to it.
The prescription is refilled by your doctor because these are available only by prescription of your treating physician. I hope I understood and answered your questions correctly. Let me know if you have any further questions. Click accept if you found my response helpful.
