Reviews for Lortab to treat Pain

Sort by:

"Lortab is a very strong pain reliever. It takes between 1-2 hours to fully kick in. The problem I had with it was: 1) Felt like I was in a mental "fog" effect for days. 2) Constipation - drink a lot of water I have had 20 pills over a period of 3 years for periodic intense leg, ankle or back pain do to work. I have switch to Tramadol 50mg with less side effects."

"Works extremely well for my pain. Chronic back pain and dislocated hip joint. Works better if taken as soon as pain begins. Highly addictive and well known street drug. Never tell anyone, teenagers, thst you have them. Take only ax needed as needed because of tolerance build up."

"In my experience this medication is pretty good but the only problem I have is, it makes me itch. My pharmacist says its not an allergy because I don't have a rash. I have found, if I take it soon enough after pain starts, it does pretty good at controlling it."

"Problem developed with inability to have proper bowel movement. Difficult to overcome until I was told to take Dulcolax with each dosage of Lortab 5/500 or 5/325. Cleared problem up. Gradually "got off" Lortab by slowly decreasing dosage over period of about a week as recommended by physician."

"I started taking Lortab after I fell 22 feet in a hunting accident inMmarch of 2012. 4 months ago I learned that I had Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, severe nerve damage, beginning stages of osteoporosis and arthritis, and bone fragments left in my ankle. Lortab was a God sent. It truly is the only thing that gets me through the day although there is still pain. It's nothing compared to what it would be like without it."

"It is the only medication that does not make me feel dizzy, drunk or crazy. I cannot take the medications used for fibromyalgia so these are all I have."

"The medicine did exactly what it was supposed to do--erased my pain when I had a wisdom tooth extraction. There were side effects, but they were minimal. The medicine made me itchy, somewhat numb, and a little bit sleepy, but it was nothing that could not be dealt with easily."

"I have been taking Lortab for 6 years since I was 13 yrs old for migraine headaches because I'm allergic to NSAIDs. I started out taking 5/500 for 2 years. Then my Dr put me on 7.5/500 for 3 1/2 years. Now I'm on 10/500. The 10/500 work the best for my pain problems. They help me get on about my day I only need to take 2 a day because they work good. Thanks."

"Due to a drunk driver hitting me when I was 17, I now suffer from precipitating migraines which is due to blood in my spinal column. I am allergic to traditional migraine medicines so Lortabs are the only medicines I can depend on to actually help me. I do not take large doses but do take it consistently when I have an attack and truth be told, I would not be able to make it through the simplest of days without it. Please drink a lot of water and fluids and it will make you constipated. Stool softeners will also help. "

"Great for pain relief, broken tibia and fibula reconstructed with titanium rod. 1-2 tabs every 4-5 hours seems to keep pain in check."

"I had an auto accident which resulted in a broken tibia and fibula. Which had to be reconstructed with a titanium rod from knee to ankle. After 2 weeks of Lortab 10/325, doctor put me on Lortab 5/325, for pain management. Taken 1-2 every 4-5 hours works really well for the pain. I could do physical therapy without being in extreme pain."

"I started this medication when I had my right hip replaced. 4 months later I had my left hip replaced. My doctor told me to take it as directed. Apparently, it not only relieves pain, but also prevents pain. He said that once I experience pain, it helps to relieve it, but if I take it before I feel pain (we knew I'd experience pain right after surgery) it would prevent it. I found this advise to be right on the mark. At first, I thought I could live without narcotic pain relievers, but it really worked to prevent the pain. Once you feel the pain, you're just trying to catch up."

"I've been suffering from endometriosis for over 5 years now. I have tried so many different medicines to help relieve the pain I have on a daily basis. My gyno prescribed Lortab ES for me 6 months ago and it has been a miracle for me. I take only as directed by my doctor and luckily haven't experienced any negative side-effects. Thanks to Lortab I can finally have some of my life back."

"I take Lortab as needed for back pain. I can see why people would get hooked on it. It not only takes away the pain, it gives me a boost of energy as well but when it wears off the pain seems stronger, making you want to take more than prescribed. My advice is to be careful to follow the as prescribed directions."

"I will be suffering from my back pain and take lortab 10/500 and within 20 minutes I'm back to living life pain free and puts me in a great mood. Best pain killer out there. I've tried vicodin and norco and percocets and they work okay but I love my lortab. I highly recommend for lower back pain."

"I have been prescribed this medicine after 3 surgeries in 7 months. September 2009 after my gallbaldder was removed, it is what I came home with. It has worked great for me. I didn't even take all that was prescribed. That's how good it worked. In October 2009 and April 2010, I had the same surgery. I was given the liquid kind. Worked like a champ. "

"I'm taking Lortab for the pain from getting my wisdom teeth out. I'm really lucky that I had them because when the anesthesia wore off the pain was unbearable. Since then, I've taken one pill or maybe one and a half if the first one didn't help after an hour or so. That only has happened a couple of times though, and mostly at night. The side effects I got are (listed from most present to rare): loopiness (like I'm slightly drunk almost), extreme mood swings (I've cried multiple times over nothing), itching (mostly on my face, not too much), constipation (only slightly though) and nausea (only the very first time I took them, and with two pills). Overall, worth it. Takes care of the pain."

"I've taken Loratab 10/500 for about 3 years for osteoarthritis in the knees and I don't know what I would do without them. I was taking them prior to my knees being replaced and still take them for hip pain. The only negative side effects I've noted is occasional constipation, which is consistent with any narcotic. I take 3-4 every day, but I have begun to notice that they are not as effective as before. I'm sure I'm developing a tolerance to them also. But I would recommend them for chronic pain for anyone who can tolerate them."
