For Back Pain "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."

For Pain "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."

For Back Pain "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."

For Pain "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."

For Pain "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."

For Back Pain "Fractured and wedged connecting vertebrae put on the 5's for many years. Now with another injury to the back moved to the 7s the first time taking the 5S made me drowsy for a couple of weeks but nothing since does its job."

For Back 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."

For Back Pain "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."

For Pain "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."

For Pain "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."

For Back Pain "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. "

For Back Pain "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. "

For Back Pain "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."
