> Larry, is hydrocodone metabolized by the same enzymes as codeine?

Yes, it is. Hydrocodone metabolizes to hydromorphone, using the 2D6 enzyme. That's Dilaudid.

> I was prescribed Vicodin for pain but one does nothing except make me itch and two made me sick as a dog. (I find it impossible to believe that people actually take these drugs for pleasure). Anyway, if I happened to be the one in 10 who gets no relief from codeine would hydrocodone be the the same? Cecilia

Yes, you got it right. All the side effects, but none of the good stuff.
