The agency said that hydrocodone-containing drugs should be subject to the same restrictions as other narcotic drugs like oxycodone and morphine. Hydrocodone belongs to a family of drugs known as opioids, which also includes heroin, codeine and methadone.
The agency’s top drug regulator, Dr. Janet Woodcock, said in a statement, “The FDA has become increasingly concerned about the abuse and misuse of opioid products, which have sadly reached epidemic proportions in certain parts of the United States.”
