Welcome! This is an online support group for anyone who is very afraid of dentistry or who suffers with dental phobia. Please note that this is NOT a general dental forum! You can find a list of them here.
In general yes but it is an interesting drug. The drug hydrocodone needs to be converted via your cytochrome P450 enzyme CYP2D6 to hydromorphone to relieve pain. Most of us do that fine but there is a small percentage of us who don't. So if you are a poor converter then you won't have decent pain relief. Talk with your doctor about combining with NSAID for optimal pain control.
