There used to be a drug called Parapectolin (Schedule V, I believe) -- a liquid containing hydrocodone that was available OTC but you had to sign for it. As far as I know, it's no longer available. OTC codeine is only available in the UK, Australia, South Africa or Canada. You can't buy it in the states (thank God). I know that a few years back it was being hotly contested in the UK because it was estimated that 1 in 4 20-somethings were taking OTC codeine/paracetemol on a regular basis.

So, just a suggestion & I don't know what your condition is but have you ever explored non-narcotic pain-relief methods?
Also, did you know that opiates actually lower our pain threshold? It's called 'Opiod Induced Hyper Analgesia'.
Here's the Wiki on it:

Can you tell us a little bit about what is going on with you in terms of what your condition is, how long you've been relying on it & @ what dose?

There isn't an OTC for Hydrocodone.  Try looking it up under herbal remedies.  Maybe there are some similar herbs that can help. If I know what type of pain and where you are experiencing it I'm sure we could help you more.

Hydrocodone is a controlled substance and it is not available over the counter.  It's commonly prescribed in medicine that combines acetaminophen and hydrocodone (Vicodin).

Ibuprofen and Tylenol. Heat with stretching and then ice before bed. Dr's can only prescribe hydro- pain meds, that you get from a pharmacy.
