Does vicodin raise blood sugar?

From Ask the Pharmacist

 Vicodin (hydrocodone with acetaminophen) is not contraindicated with diabetes or with any diabetic medications. I do not believe that this will cause the blood sugar to increase on its own. Have you changed your diet or reduced your activity? Talk to your diabetes doctor about your concerns.
