    Unhappy Loritab verse Vicodin

    My Fiance just had screw's and plates put in his lower leg and ankle on both sides of the right foot. He had surgery a day ago and was prescribed percocet. The pain is so bad that he has been taking it every 3 hours instead of 4 hours. He went back to the surgeon on call and they gave him Lortab. Is Lortab stronger than Vicodin.

    Lortab is the name brand of the medication. Lortab consists of hydrocodone and acetaminophen. Vicodin is also the name brand of a medication that also contains hydrocodone and acetaminophen. There is no significant difference in vicodin and lortab themselves other than the dose prescribed.

    The only way to determine which medication is stronger is if you state what the strength is of both prescriptions. On the bottle it will have written on it lortab 10/500 or something like that. The vicodin could be written similarly or as a different strength such as ... vicodin es 7.5/500. These are simply examples and there could be an assortment of strengths written. The strengths could be written exactly the same or appearing to be different in strength. Let us know how it is written and prescribed to be taken and we can tell you exactly. God bless.
