    Default 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[?][?][?]

    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.

    Cool the lowdown

    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
    and
    darvons are mixed with propoxyphene w/asprin

    percocets are oxycodone w/acetaminophen
    and
    percodans are oxycodone w/asprin

    oxycontins are oxycodone

    and i'm 100% on that. thank you and good day

    Default Marine Mrs

    Maybe because Lorcet has more acetaminophen (650mgs) opposed to Vicodin which has 500mgs, or maybe it's because there both made by different Mfr's, and there's something in the filler (the inert ingredients) in Vicodin that's causing your headaches?

    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.

    Default 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
    and
    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.

    Default 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.
