Lortab vs Lorcet?
Lortab vs Lorcet?
Please settle a bet! I've heard and read that Lortab is hydrocodone with acetaminophen and Lorcet is hydrocodone with aspirin, and vice versa! What is correct[?][?][?]
Your right, loracet is tylenol loratb is asa.Both are weak ****py painkillers.....Dave
But wait, you just said Lorcet was Tylenol, which is acetaminophen! See what I mean about being confused! And if they are 'weak' then why are so many of us hooked on 'em???[xx(]
I know that Lortab is Tylenol, Lorcet Not so sure But I am 100% the lortab is Is tylenol, I take them everyday
they are Good pain medicine if your pain isnt really bad but after you take them for a while it doesnt help as much.
People are addicted because so many doctors order them for pain.They are way over prescribed and that's why you have so many people addicted.Just because it's weak doesn't make it anyless dangerous for getting addicted and opiate is an opiate in that sense....Dave
uhm....I don't know where you are getting your information, but loracet is not mixed with asa....darvocet is mixed with asa(aspirin). the difference between lortabs and loracet is nothing really just manufactuer and dosage they are the same thing!!! I'm sorry ,but if people are going to give advise to somebody seeking some, be accurate!
Lortab and Lorcet are both Hydrocodone + Acetaminophen.... Acetaminophen is Tylenol.... a Lortab 10 is 10/500 and a Lorcet 10 is 10/650. I dont know if all different mgs of Lorcet have more Tylenol but neither of them have aspirin.
Actually NurseBetty - Darvocet is (Propoxyphene Napsylate/Acetaminophen) it always contains Acetaminophen, that's what the Cet means. Now there is/was a Darvon Compound-65 that contains Propoxyphene 65 mg, ASA 389 mg, caffeine 32.4 mg, also there's Darvon which is only Propoxyphene.
If anyone is interested, Darvocet is being phased out.

Whoops ,sorry my mistake.In Canada I get percocet and percodon mixed up with your hydrocodone down there.We don't have hydrocodone in a pill form up here you can only get it in prescription cough syrup.Sorry for the misinformation....Dave[:I]
lorcet and lortab are both accetaphenamin
WHY is this topic always confusing! here's the 'real' deal!
lorcet/lortab/vicodin are the same 2 ingredients: hydrocodone and acetaminophen (tylenol) just different pharmaceutical companies
lorcet: 5/500, 7.5/500, and 10/650
lortab: 5/500 and 7.5/500
vicodin: 5/500, 7.5/750, 10/660
there is also norcet/norco which is 5/500 and 10/325 respectively
there is also vicprofen which is mixed with... guess! ibuprofen
darvocets are propxyphene w/acetaminophen
darvons are mixed with propoxyphene w/asprin
percocets are oxycodone w/acetaminophen
percodans are oxycodone w/asprin
oxycontins are oxycodone
and i'm 100% on that. thank you and good day
lorcet/tab vs vicodin
can anyone tell me why i get ridiculous headaches when i take vicodin but not when i take lorcet?
im sorry but darvon does not contain asprin....it is 65 mg of proproxyphene....thats it...so you were about 90% on that....also there is a 10-500 preparation of lortab...thanks

Yes, Ozzman72 is correct. Lortab is 325mg to 500mg acetaminophen, though some say the 325 is actually Vicodin. My pharmacist says they're all "trade names" just as Motrin and Advil are both Ibuprofen. Lorcet is 650mg acetaminophen. Seems most prescription painkillers ending in "cet" are those that contain the 650mg. Darvocet, Percocet, Lorcet, etc.
Lets Be Technical
"Cet" stands for acetaminophen.
"Lortab" is never 325mgs, never has, and never will be, that name brand belongs to Norco only.
Norco is 325mg of acetaminophen
Vicodin is 500mg of acetaminophen
Lorcet is 650mg of acetaminophen
Zydone is 400mg of acetaminophen
Xodol is 300mg of acetaminophen
Maxidone is 750mg of acetaminophen
These are all brand names, they get the brand name from the amount of acetaminophen in the combo, it is a generic if it has the same amount of acetaminophen as the name brand, generics have no name with the exception of Lortab 5 (5mg Hydro/500mg acetaminophen) which is the same as Vicodin (5/500mg). If your doctor writes your prescription for Norco 10 (which is made by Watson btw) and you request generic it will never be filled with "Vicodin" or Lortab, etc since the Mfr doesn't make that strength, it will simply be labled Hydrocodone Bitartrate and Acetaminophen 10mg/325mg.
Again, Vicodin is 5/500mg
Vicodin ES is 7.5/750mg
Vicodin HP is 10/660mg
That's the only three hydrocodone/apap products that Abbott Labs make, it's technically incorrect to call Vicodin anything other then 5/500mgs, they all have their own names. That's the point I'm trying to make.

To the dude that said Oxycodone and oxycontin are the same.
Oxycodone and oxycontin are not totally the same. Yes they are the same drug, but different time release management. Oxycodone is usually used for the lesser severe pain. Oxycontin is used for breakthrough pain, for pain that can't be capped with stuff like oxycodone. Oxycontin last's up to twelve hours versus oxycodone for the six to eight. That's why someone would take these two things at different times and sometimes could feel a totally different feeling.
They also have 5/325 in norco.
