A hydrocodone compound is a pharmaceutical compound containing hydrocodone.

To qualify for treatment as a Schedule III medication in the United States, hydrocodone must be combined with a non-narcotic ingredient in a recognized therapeutic amount. There are four dosage forms recognized by the U.S. authorities:

per 100 ml (i.e. a liquid), which must have no more than 300 mg of (dissolved) hydrocodone in addition to the therapeutic amount of a non-narcotic ingredient
per dosage unit (i.e. a solid, pill or capsule) which must have no more than 15 mg of hydrocodone in addition to the therapeutic amount of a non-narcotic ingredient
Compounded dosages seen on the market include:

per 15 ml of syrup: 15 mg/80 mg hydrocodone/acetaminophen(paracetamol), 30 mg/80 mg hydrocodone/acetaminophen, and 45 mg/80 mg hydrocodone/acetaminophen
per capsule: 5 mg/80 mg hydrocodone/acetaminophen, 10 mg/80 mg hydrocodone/acetaminophen, 15 mg/80 mg hydrocodone/acetaminophen, 10 mg/100 mg hydrocodone/acetaminophen, 15 mg/100 mg hydrocodone/acetaminophen, 10 mg/200 mg hydrocodone/acetaminophen, 15 mg/200 mg hydrocodone/acetaminophen, 5 mg/500 mg hydrocodone/acetaminophen, 10 mg/200 mg hydrocodone/ibuprofen, and 15 mg/200 mg hydrocodone/ibuprofen

There are also Hydrocodone tablets containing 10mg hydrocodone and 325 mg acetaminophen.  They have the brand name Norco.  From my experience moving around the country it seems that different combinations under different brand names seem to be utilized more than others by Physicians in certain states.

To add to the above many of these combinations are made to serve the purpose of increasing the opiate dosage therefore the analgesic affect without increasing the amount of acetaminophen or Tylenol.  You can't take more than 4000mg of Tylenol safely a day so many combinations are made so that you get more hydrocodone with lower doses of the Tylenol.

They do have it here, but you would have to get it compounded which means that the compounding pharmacy would make it specifically for you.  You would have to get your doctor to write a prescription for compounded hydrocodone and then go to a compounding pharmacy.
