Reviews for Lortab to treat Back Pain

Sort by:

"Okay well at FIRST this medication was pretty cool, it took away ALL my pain and not only that but gave me extra energy as well. Before I had my son I would not let doctors prescribe me narcotic pain killers for anything, as I had been addicted to Vicodin in the past. SO, my son was born and I then developed bursitis from years of running in the army, working out, and a combo of a hip surgery and other factors. At first I went to chiropractor 3x a week, massage therapy, physical therapy and finally told the doctor I HAD to have some pain medication, it was so bad it changed my life. Started taking these 2 years ago & now they don't help me but if i DON'T take them I get sick! :( wish I'd never started on them now."

"I have had 3 surgeries regarding my spine. 2 neck operations, 1 low back discetomy. I have been diagnosed with degenerative disc disease. I have elected several times to go without the medication to see how my body responds on other over the counter medications. Nothing worked. I also tried alternative medication prescribed from my pain management doctor to see if that would work, it did not. I have been taking Lortab 7.5 for 6yrs now responsibly and without it I have very poorly controlled pain."

"When I got ran over by the 18 wheeler, tried everything. Chiropractor, Physical therapy, tramadol, etc. nothing stopped the pain. Lortab 7.5 is only thing that works. Take 1/2 in morning, 1/2 at lunch, and 1/2 in evening. Just watch for dizziness, nausea, and I guess that's a side effect. I feel loopy and detached a little, but it's better than hurting all the time. Most definitely don't mix with booze, made me sick as a dog. Also watch your tolerance. One day tried to take a whole one and had to lay down. Just be mindful it hits everyone different. Hope this helps."

"Lortab allows me to work a physical job. Without it, that would be impossible. It does not remove all the pain, but it helps with the severity of the pain. I am careful that I do not overuse it."

"I've been taking hydrocodone for a almost 3 years for back pain (spinal stenosis) the dosage has been increased from 2.5 to 10 MG. (gradually, over a 2 year period) and although it does not take away all of the pain, it DOES help quite a bit. I struggle with the fact that I need the pain meds, and on occasion, I stop taking it for a few days to a week, hoping I can make it without it, THAT'S when I realize just how much it helps. The bright side is, I've discovered I can just stop cold turkey, without any withdrawal issues, and I'm truly thankful for that. "

"If you have nerve damage or had a back operation your doctor will give you most likely 7.5-10mg. The only problem I see is it loses effectives after about three hours. But it will help relieve back pain along with nerve pain. I would tell you if you have nerve pain, and have been dealing with pain for awhile, ask your doctor to start off at the 10mg. "

"This Medication Is The best pain medicine I have tried. I've tried Codeine, Oxycodone, And all those over the counter meds. Hydrocodone By far has helped my nerve and back pain. I'm only 16 years old and I have alot of Back problems (Scoliosis, Spondylithesis, Herniated disk, pinched nerve) And Leg pain. I take 1 tablet 3 to 4 times daily as needed for my pain. It takes my pain away within 15 minutes! It's a wonderful medication. I love it. I've been on Lortab 7.5/500 for about a year now."

"I have been taking this medication since 3/11 due to a compression fracture in my lower back suffered in a car accident. I can say that it has never completely taken away my pain for the full 8 hours as indicated between dosages. In the beginning it at least made the pain tolerable and I had to take it every 4 hours to at least get that level of relief. It is now 1/13 and I've been on it for almost 2 years. It does a decent job at pain relief for about 6 hours provided my level of activity is not excessive or strainous. A lot of days I find myself counting down the minutes from hour 6-8."
