Review by 2 herniated disk guy (taken for 1 to 6 months):
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.

This medicine is a god send. I have 3 herniated disks in my back and sometimes can not get out of bed. Thanks to this medicine, I can have a good quality of life and do the things I need to do. It has helped me tremendously!

Lortab works fine at first then you develop a tolerance to it and have to be put on something stronger. I have degenerative bone and disc disease in my spine so I'll have to be on pain medicines the rest of my life.

This medicine is good if you can get pass the side effects. I was sick, dizzy, felt like throwing up, felt like I was on a ship moving fast, or like car sickness. I went to see a dentist and he told me how best to take the medicine. Take Dramamine 30 minutes before, make sure to lay down, don't get in the car and do not watch TV. Everything he told me was right.
