Lots of things. It depends on your tolerance for pain and what your currently taking to make sure it mix's. For chronic pain as example, I take methadone. I don't recommend this for everyone. You should talk to your doctor. Ask him or her what is the best fit for you. I wish you success in your ability to tolerate pain without addicting meds... kimmie1

Thank you for your help. Both are 10's. I will be starting Chemo next Monday. I don't know for sure what med's I will be given then.
Again - thank you

They both come in several different strengths, the one with the higher number is stronger. The Lorcet simply has a higher dose of acetaminophen I think.

There both primarily the same drug( hydrocodone) Loricet has tylonol I'm not sure what else is in lortab,BUT it then depends on the dosage of the non-narcotic drug & the dosage of the narcotic drug. Take Vicoprofin,it contains 200mg ibuprofin & 7.5mg hydrocodone. You'll have to look at the bottle and you should see something like 5/325,which means 5mg hydrocodone & 325mg tylonol. Usally the bigger # is the non-narcotic. Look & see which has the bigger of the small #,and you can see which is stronger. Hope that helps because almost all are formated that way. J.S.
