Pursuant to FDA regulations Lortab was banned due to the hydrocodonhe/500 mg acetaminophen strength. The replacement of choice for Dr. now is Norco, which has only 325 mg. acetaminophen. Since the ban went into effect the company raised the price 100%, making it unaffordable for the average consumer without RX insurance. Once again the consumer is screwed by the FDA and the company gets a windfall. What can be done about the price gouging.
I'm not sure why you're having a problem. No matter what the dr writes for unless he specifies brand only you get the same pill with either of them. My norco generic was $25 for 75 pills. It hasn't gone up here. That's what its been since I started it in october. The makers of norco brand didn't make lortab brand. There is no reason they can't make lortab with less tylenol. My pharmacy told me that they don't even stock the brand name hydrocodone drugs. Where are you and what did it cost you, and I'll see if I can find some place cheaper in your area. Often times when a price goes up its not the manufacturer but the distributor who decides he wants to get rich on it. Do you have insurance?
