Lortab

Lortab combines a narcotic analgesic (painkiller) and cough reliever with a non-narcotic analgesic for the relief of moderate to moderately severe pain. Lortab is the brand name for the combination of acetaminophen (Tylenol) and hydrocodone. The hydrocodone in Lortab binds to the pain receptors in the brain so that the sensation of pain is reduced. The acetaminophen in Lortab halts the production of prostaglandins which otherwise cause pain. Lortab is available in tablet, capsule, and liquid form; and when prescribed is taken every 4-6 hours by mouth. The hydrocodone found in Lortab can lead to addiction if abused or overused. When Lortab is prescribed by a doctor do not take larger doses, take Lortab more frequently, or take Lortab for longer than prescribed by the doctor.

Lortab Withdrawal

Lortab combines a narcotic analgesic (painkiller) and cough reliever with a non-narcotic analgesic for the relief of moderate to moderately severe pain. Individuals develop an addiction to Lortab because it produces feelings of well-being. Once an individual has developed an addiction to Lortab they will often get multiple prescriptions from different doctors to support their addiction. Lortab activates the brain's reward systems. The promise of reward is very intense, causing the individual to crave more Lortab and to focus his or her activities around taking the drug. The ability of Lortab to strongly activate brain reward mechanisms and its ability to chemically alter the normal functioning of these systems is what produces an addiction to Lortab. Lortab also reduce a person's level of consciousness, harming the ability to think or be fully aware of present surroundings.

If a regular user of Lortab stops taking Lortab, he or she will experience lortab withdrawal symptoms within six to twelve hours. Lortab withdrawal symptoms are usually not life-threatening. The intensity of the lortab withdrawal symptoms depend on the degree of the individuals addiction to Lortab. For example, lortab withdrawal symptoms may grow stronger for twenty-four to seventy-two hours and then gradually decline over a period of seven to fourteen days.

  • intense cravings for the drug
  • irritability
  • nausea or vomiting
  • muscle aches
  • runny nose or eyes
  • dilated pupils
  • sweating
  • diarrhea
