Answer

Narcotic Combination Analgesics

Pain control is essential to quality patient care. It ensures patient comfort, promotes pulmonary toilet, and aids physical therapy regimens. Many analgesics have sedating properties that benefit patients who have sustained fractures. Hydrocodone and oxycodone preparations are generally more effective and better tolerated than other narcotic-acetaminophen combinations such as those containing codeine.

Hydrocodone bitartrate and acetaminophen (Vicodin ES)

Drug combination indicated for relief of moderately severe to severe pain.
