What is the difference in Lortab and lorcet?
I have taken lorcet before with no problems. I was recently prescribed lortab for a shoulder injury. I have never taken lortab before. I always assumed lortab and lorcet were the same thing or close to it. The lortab makes me feel goofy, groggy, and kind of sick to my stomach. I never had that problem with lorcet. Anyone have any ideas as to why I feel different with the lortab or know the difference between the two drugs?
Lortab and Hycodan in the same day?
I was wondering if it is okay to take a lortab around eleven in the morning and then take the liquid lortab around seven or eight at night? I have done it before but I am just wanting to double check.. I didn't know if the other ingredients in the two would not mix well. But I don't think it is a problem in taking that much hydrocodone since i only took one 5mg.. Just wondering.
  It's not a problem.

Can you take lortab and zofran during the same day?
My husband just had rhinoplasty... His doctor prescribed him lortab for pain, but he's complaining of severe nausea. I am 30 weeks pregnant with a prescription for zofran (works wonders). Is he able to take the zofran and lortab? Thanks for the help :)
  No clash there, so, yes, it's fine.
Good luck to both of you! :)
what is the ingredience in vicodin hp tab 10-660 compared to lortab tab 10-500?
I have been prescribed,taking vicodin hp 10-660 now prescribing Lortab tab 10-500mg .I'm wanting to know the difference.?

  Both medications are combination products. They have hydrocodone (an opiate pain medication) and acetaminophen (a non narcotic analgesic medication - usually called Tylenol)

The numbers after the name of the medication indicates the proportion of each medication in the combination product.

Vicodin HP 10/660 has 10 mg of hydrocodone and 660 mg of acetaminophen per tablet. Lortab 10/500 has 10 mg of hydrocodone and 500 mg of acetaminophen.

It is not recommended that anyone take more than 4,000 mg of acetaminophen a day for a short period and 3600 mg per day long term. By changing the medication from 10/660 to 10/500 it decreases the impact of the acetaminophen on your liver and kidneys which have to metabolize and excrete the drug. It also makes it possible for you to take a higher total number of tablets per day and still have a safety margin.

Many providers prefer to use Norco 10/325 for this reason, as the acetaminophen, in many patients, provides minimal analgesic benefit when compared to the hydrocodone.
Does anyone know if fiorinal with codeine is at potent as lortab 10mg?
I do not know the dosage of the fiorinal but does it come close to lortab? is it in the same family of drugs?

  If you don't know the dosage than it's probably not yours and you shouldn't be taking them. And no it is not the same,,, hydrocodone is a lot stronger than codeine.
are there any legit sites that sell lortab? My doctor is out of the country and I haven't had a refill for a month and a half and I am hurting(I am disabled) and all these sites are so expensive. Does anyone know a good one?
  Don't know what LORTAB is.?? If you need it you should be able to contact your Dr.'s covering Physician. He could write a script for you. At least enough until your Doc returns..
How long does withdrawals from Lortab last?
I've been taking Lortab for about six months and want to quit but always start back because of the withdrawals.
  Man, you should quit now while your ahead. The withdrawal from Lortab will be quick. It will only last about a week, and after 3-5 days the worst of it will be over. The thing is though, if you have the pills laying around, its damn near a physical impossibility to go through the withdrawals. Wait till your out, then try to have atleast 4 solid days where you can do nothing but lay around and do nothing but feel shitty.

My best advice for easing the withdrawals: Get yourself some Ibuprofen, some Loperamide (Immodium AD), and Pepto Bismul. Make sure you drink plenty of water, force yourself to eat, and try to do some exercise as well. If you can, do a quick 7 day taper/detox using methadone or suboxone. Good luck man. And BTW, you got it easy. I've had cold turkey withdrawals from 105 mg of methadone a day, and also from 1 gram of high quality heroin a day. Lortab withdrawal is not even on the same level as those.

Oh, and the cravings... Well, the cravings last a lifetime. Sucks man... :-/
What happens if take take lortab with a ton of alcohol?
The office alcoholic is drinking Jack Daniels straight up and also taking lortab (sp?). He drinks like a fish everyday, but today he is acting like a total nutcase.
We are Loan Officers, and its not acceptable to drink at work, although everyone knows this guy has a problem.

How does Lortab make you feel if you take it for pain from internal surgery?
Just curious? I know it's a painkiller, but I was wondering how it makes you feel exactly other than getting rid of the pain.

Also, if one was taking Vicodin, and was getting too dizzy and nauseous from it, would Lortab be a better replacement?

  Lortab is just like vicodin just make sure to drink milk with it to coat the stomach and lay down it aways makes me sleepy
is it ok to take Cleocin 300mg with Lortab 5mg?
The dentist prescibed me both of them and said to take the lortab at night, and the cleocin, but i read the drug facts on cleocin and it said do not take this drug with narcotic pain medications..what should i do??
I am also taking Cipro 500mg
  No significant interactions
I have been taking Lortab about about 2mo now. Yesterday my Dr. called in Stadol nasel spray!?
When I looked up the stadol online i saw there where alot of site that said you had to be carful using stadol when taking Lortab. Can someone explain this more so i know if i can take it for my headaches
James R
  I would call the pharmacist and explain your concerns. You could call the doctor too but the pharmacist is a good resource for this type of info and they are much easier to reach than the doctor. If the pharmacist can't put your fears to rest or suggests your doctor may want to reconsider you could then phone the doc.

How does Lortab affect breast milk and how much is too much?
I was prescribed Lortab for pain after my C-Section last week and I am breastfeeding. The medicine isn't helping to relieve my pain very much at all and I'm taking one tablet every 6 hours. I'm unsure of the milligrams because all I can see on the bottle is 7.5/500 written at the bottom so maybe that's the measurement. I just wanted to know if I can take two without a risk of it affecting my baby. Doctors answer only please.
  Hi. Im not a dr so I hope its ok to give some 2 cents. I do know of some expierence involving a dr.

My friend had a c section and her dr prescribed your same medication. She was in some horrible pain. She is a stiffler on breastfeeding, its kinda a family tradition with her though she was in so much pain her dr tried to tell her she was going to need more pain meds then the baby coud tolerate
She rfused said she would deal with the pain. She as prescribed took her 7.5 which was not working at all. She called and asked him if she could up th meds and he said no that by now her colustrum has stopped and tht when you first deliever pain meds aren't going to your baby colustrum is but now your milk which is yur blood and whatever is in your system is going straight into baby. He again suggested he knew she was in pain and that saddly breast feeding just wasn't going to work an that she needed to manage her pain. She refused and wanted to feed her baby. She upped her dosage, and the way the Er caculated the babys blood test she had taken aprox 2 at a time.. but 3 that day so probably the regular dosage of 1 then the pain got bad then thats when the 2 at a time. She doesn't admit it still to this day but the ER says she did and her dr says she did she would never have purposly harmed her child she loved him and wanted the best but he got very out of it, limp a if all his bones were just broken almost, he was not passed out but out like a light snoozing and she couldnt get him to wake up to eat. When she was going to pump instead her milk woud not come down due to the lortab and she had clogged milk ducts.

She could have got in a lot of trouble but because she was usually a reliable patient and he knew she was in the bad pain and she was in shock and depression at what could have happen to her son she decided to ive up the breast feeding,
If anyone chooses to do so we do have the perfect remedy for this!!! AMAZING!
How many days is my lortab suposed to last?
I take Lortab for pain but I am unsure when I can refill it. I get 60 at a time and it says take one up to 4 times daily as needed. If I take 4 a day it would only last 15 days. Is my perscription for 30 days or if needed can I refill before 30 days. I hear about people trying to get drugs refilled early and dont want to do that. Any help would be great thanks.
  Your pill bottle will say how long of a supply it is.
What is the best excuse to get my DR. to bump up from Lortab 10s to Roxicodone 30mg?
I have been taking lortab 10s for 4 months and they are not working like they use to. I have taking Roxicodone 30mg and they seem just strong enough to help. But I dont want to alarm my Dr and make him think I just want strong drugs.
  If you are looking for an "excuse" then you are not taking the pills for pain. Plus, there is not a doctor in the world, Pain Management or otherwise, that is going to take the leap from 10 mg Hydrocodone to 30 mg Oxycodone in one dosage adjustment. That is just enormous! And it would more than likely be malpractice if some harm was done to the patient as a result. If you are actually in this much pain to warrant the use of 30 mg oxycodone tablets, then you need to see a pain management doctor, and you also need to get the pain problem fixed if at all possible.

How can I extract the acetaminophen from my lortab elixir?
I have lortab elixir for surgery and have to take a large does for the pain but thats too much tylenol. Is it possible to extract the tylenol from the hydrocodone? I know people do it with pills but wasn't sure if its possible with the elixir. Thanks for your help! And quit telling me to get a different medicine. If you dont know how to do the extraction method then dont freakin reply! I'm looking for a straight answer not some BS!
  It's not impossible to extract the Tylenol. You can find instructions on Erowid for cold water extraction. But it's not smart, and nobody does it unless they're tryign to get high. Ask your doctor for somethign without Tylenol.

Is Methadose a big step up?
Im on 15mg of Lortab 3 times a day. Doctor just prescribed 5mg tablets of methadose to take as a long lasting med. and to cut down to 7.5mg of lortab 3 times a day. Its for pain mgmt. after having my chest muscle explode from seatbelt pressure in a accident in which i was a passenger (lasting injury, the accident was 5 years ago, 75% of the muscle was removed, 25% saved)
  You better believe it is and let me tell you this. If you had a chest muscle explode you mist surely need it. DO not get discouraged if your 5mg's of Methadone is not killing the pain right away like the Lortab, you must aquire a program for this drug in your brain. I assure you it will be the best! It may take a little time to get the desired results. There is so much I can write and I am not going to write a book.

If your doc started you out on 5mg, send that info to HARMD. "Helping America Reduce Methadone Deaths." he is doing the right thing. And he is no stranger to this drug.

Methadone is the most efficient pain reliever on the planet, it maintains a constant blood level throughout 24 hours and it's threshold for pain on contrary to HARMD'ed claims is a long 8 hours. What pain pill lasts that long for pain? And they say just 8 hours like it is nothing. Just be careful with it, do not ever increase the dose 10mg's and realize this is going to probably be a for life thing. Do not take more if the pain relief is not there, give it time to work! This is what your doc is for.

Do not mix it with any benzodiazepiene! Or alcohol or any drug that works on GABA 1,2 0r 3. They will cancel it, especially Valium! Trust me, I know first hand. Benzo's will displace Methadone!

Your main goal with methadone as any other opiate is to keep the lowest possible working dose constant. Methadone is a fantastic pain reliever and I weaned off of 200mg's a day as precribed for pain, the doc I had just brought me up too fast. Methadone although it has long term effects like everything else, there is overwhelming evidence it is the lightest on everything compared to any other opiate. ANd it is the most scrutinized drug on the planet.

If you have questions on this drug I am the man to ask. I understand Methadone better than anyone on Yahoo .And a hell of a lot better than a lot of people. Retain my name, for real. I am here to debunk all HARMD's lies and promote this drug. And if they say cheaper is not always better. Maybe a member from HARMD can finance Fentanyl patches for you out of their own pocket. And they think even Fentanyl (A drug 40 times stronger than Heroin is safer than Methadone)

THe trick with this drug is you again must remain on the lowest possible working dose. Getting off it is not as bad as anything else if not easier. Listen to your doc and write me. This is a good combination. Lortab and Methadone.

And all opiates kill by depressing the respiratory system. DO not be intimidated by lies propagated by anyone. Methadone is not that damn dangerous. MY ADVISE! "Do not tell a soul you are on this! PLease. There are millions of people that still associate Methadone with Heroin addicts! And sad but true that is just the way it is. At least till I get a hold of them.
How does Lortab, ultram and darvocet show up on a drug screen?
Have scripts for ultram and darvocet, but took my husband's lortab last night and now I have drug screen in am for a job? What can you tell me?
Mary Jane L
  Mary...there's good news and bad news. The bad news is that yes...even having taken only 1 Lortab it will show up as an opiate in your test a low level. Now the good news...or at least....with a bit of luck, good news.

Darvocet is a combination of propoxyphene and acetaminophen. It is a mild pain killer BUT it is also an OPIATE. Granted, chemically it is considered a "weak" opiate, less than simple codeine but an opiate non the less. So...make sure that you tell the person/company that is conducting the test that you have been taking your Darvocet as prescribed by your doctor for the last several days...depending on what you use it for. They will ask you what medications you maybe taking any way but make sure they write down you have been taking the Darvocet. Then when the opiate shows up the odds are in your favor that they will figure it is due to the Darvocet. That's the best chance you have unless you can delay the test for at least a weak....but what are the odds; right.

Hey, good luck. I'd hate to see you miss out on a job for take 1 Lortab.
Please help, I need to go to bed! Can you take 10 mg Lexapro, 24 hr Sudafed, and Lortab 5/500 together? ?
I kinda wish I didn't start the Lexapro again >.<

I've been in pain for being beyond tense, so much I can't sleep well (atleast it hurts when i try to sleep in my comfy position) so I need the Lortab (Vicodin) because tylenol sinus is crapping out after a couple of hours and then I wake up.

I need the sudafed (24 hour, the kind with 240mg of psuedophedrine) to help my nose congestion >.< My nose is evil.

I normally have no side-effects from all of these individually, but I don't know about it all together. I've been trying to look it up but I don't see much. I can't find anything about any of this stuff interacting together, but it's a lot of medicine XP
  The sudafed (24 hour - psuedoephedrine) is non drowsy and may actually make it more difficult for you to sleep. It's a stimulant.

Other than that, there are no drug-drug interactions.

Try using diphenhydramine (Benadryl) for your nose and it may even help you sleep.
What is the fastest way to make Lortab 7.5 start working faster?
What is the fastest way to make Lortab 7.5 start working faster? Chewing them? Eating on empty stomach? Thank You.
  Drink a cup of coffee with it. The caffeine and warmth will help.
What is percocet? and what is percodan? What would be a little stronger than Lortab?
  Percocet is the brand name of a medication that has oxycodone and acetaminophen (Tylenol). Percodan is oxycodone and asprin. Both are considered stronger than Lortab (hydrocodone and acetaminophen). However, there are different strengths of each.
Oxycodone and hydrocodone are both narcotics and are derivatives of codiene. None should be taken with out a physicians approval. make sure you check the strength on these before you take any!!
Is there a liquid ibuprofen with codeine available in the US and if so, what is it called?
Because of stomach surgery, I cannot take the Anaprox DS for my migraine headaches. I have tried Tylenol 3 w/codeine and Lortab (in liquid form) which seems to help, but may be having an allergic reaction from it.
Because of stomach surgery, I cannot take the Anaprox DS for my migraine headaches. Because I have no acids in my stomach anymore, I cannot take it as it will not dissolve. I have tried Tylenol 3 w/codeine and Lortab (in liquid form) which seems to help, but may be having an allergic reaction from it.

Liquid is the only way for me to get quick pain relief.
  Here are two sites that can help you with your migraines without pain meds.

and you can check to see about the ibuprofen with codeine at this site
I was called by employer re: urine drug screen current meds lortab, soma, talwin-nx, lyrica, pos for darvocet?
  If you failed the drug test thats why they called. Most places have you list your medications prior to the drug test. As long as you can provide a current RX for the meds you should be fine.
