She got Hycodan tablets, the same as the human medicine. The second ingredient is homatropine. Some sources say it is added at a sub-therapeutic dose to discourage abuse. I'm not sure how it is supposed to do that, unless you would reach an excessive dose of the homatropine quicker than the hydrocodone. When I looked up homatropine, it says that it is generally not abused because the experience tends to be unpleasant.
