First, you either have a very cool doc, or a very questionable one.
Yes opiates relieve physical and emotional pain.
Yes, Hydrocodone is known to create agressive/agitated states.
Your doc is WAY OFF LABLE. not all bad necessarily...
I wouldn't say its the best for your purposes.
I have found it helpful during funerals, and tragic moments; so did aristotle.
Buprenophine is the only opiate i've heart of prescribed for mood disorders.
If anything Hydrocodone is gonna be a short term solution.
Tolerance will build, probably dependancy, etc...
Benzodiazapines are more common. Though also have similar problems.
If his personal habits get excessively weird tell his doc.
It's not a cool habit to pick up. Cheap tho!
Most Pdocs will go with SSRIs like prozac etc for long term.
If its short term, it could work just not any sort of long term solution.

> Hi,
> My brother who suffers from depression and anxiety was recently prescribed hydrocodone by his doctor. (Hydrocodone is also known as Vicodin, Anexsia, Dicodid, Hycodan, Hycomine, Lorcet, Lortab, Norco, Tussionex and Vicoprofen). Has anyone heard of this before? He says it is supposed to help my brother's anxiety.
> My mom, who lives with my brother says the hydrocodone makes my brother hostile and hyper which obviously makes her living situation even harder than it all ready is. Could he be taking too much (soory, I don't know his dose) and that is why these side effects are occurring, or are these common side effects of hydrocodone?
> BTW, he is also taking Cymbalta.
> Thanks, everyone!
> Liz
