After 5 years taking Lortab 4 low back pain, how do you safely taper off with no withdrawal?

It's almost impossible to taper since you have become dependent on the hydrocodone and unless someone else has total control over the drug then you will likely not be successful. Your best bet would be to take a week and go cold turkey.
If you can get someone to have total control of the hydrocodone then you can taper down a pill a week. You will almost always suffer somewhat so this is why you should really do the cold turkey if you want to do it without the help of drugs... Good luck... Dave

It takes super human powers to go cold turkey! But as usual, Dave is right again. Good luck on getting off the opiates!

After 7 years ,I tapered from 2 lortab 7.5's per day to 0 in 3 days. That was 24 days ago. I've experienced mainly stomach cramps. No psycological effects... I still have about 10 tablets hidden away. Why would I take 1 and risk lengthening my discomfort ... which I hope I'm almost done with. free discount card
