Reviews for Lortab

Anonymous July 21, 2010

“I'm taking Lortab for the pain from getting my wisdom teeth out. I'm really lucky that I had them because when the anesthesia wore off the pain was unbearable. Since then, I've taken one pill or maybe one and a half if the first one didn't help after an hour or so. That only has happened a couple of times though, and mostly at night. The side effects I got are (listed from most present to rare): loopiness (like I'm slightly drunk almost), extreme mood swings (I've cried multiple times over nothing), itching (mostly on my face, not too much), constipation (only slightly though) and nausea (only the very first time I took them, and with two pills). Overall, worth it. Takes care of the pain.”

“I've taken Loratab 10/500 for about 3 years for osteoarthritis in the knees and I don't know what I would do without them. I was taking them prior to my knees being replaced and still take them for hip pain. The only negative side effects I've noted is occasional constipation, which is consistent with any narcotic. I take 3-4 every day, but I have begun to notice that they are not as effective as before. I'm sure I'm developing a tolerance to them also. But I would recommend them for chronic pain for anyone who can tolerate them.”

“I take Lortab for back and foot pain. The pain is a result of getting diabetes and back pain is from a wreck 12 years ago that nearly ended my life. I used to take 7.5mg every 4 hours and it used to work but now I take 15mg 3 times a day.”

“I have been taking Lortab for several years for pain. It's not effective as it was since the doctor lowered my dose from 10mg to 7.5mg. I think she's trying to treat the dependency I have developed over the years. I don't know if it's physical or mental but I do know it eases the pain.”

“I was originally prescribed this for a foot injury.. not one for pain medicines I reluctantly take these once in a awhile. However, the last couple of times I have taken them at night due to body aches and pains, it killed the pain but my sleep was filled with vivid dreams, and I could not reach the deep sleep. I woke up with a headache, hangover feeling, and totally drained throughout the next day - not worth it in my opinion with the side effects I am experiencing. Use with caution.”

“I have been on lortab and oxycontin since I had spinal surgery in 07 just had spinal cord stimulator implanted in me in feb of 2010 lortab helps when the oxycontin starts to wear down about five hours.Sometime it gets to the point where nothing seems to work hoping to change to something stronger and no constipation any ideas.”

“Had back surgery in May 2009, and due to scar tissue have chronic pain. Working now with a pain management specialist and taking Lortab. It does help alleviate the pain, but only take when I have to. Only side effect for me is a little sleepiness.”

“I have been given this medication 4 times this year. The first time was in March for a pulled tooth. The second was after my gallbladder surgery, third was after hernia ,and this time was for some more dental work. For years both codeine and hydrocodone gave me horrible side effects and reactions. But I think I've built up some tolerance to medicines over the years. I have to take Phenegran with it and half a Benadryl. It makes me semi nauseated and itchy. It mellows me out and helps oh so much with pain. I have been given various strengths and even liquid form. Works great!”

“This is a good pain medication, however, there are side effects. As with any opiate the drug can and usually does cause dependency. Long period use is extremely hard on the liver due to the high levels of Acetaminophen. Some people experience drowsiness, while others experience insomnia. On a scale of 1 to 10, the pain in my personal experiences will be reduced from a 10 to a 5 in approximately 30 minutes. I recommend speaking with your doctor about alternatives if you are going to be treated in the long term.”

“I have been taking this drug for the last couple of months for severe shoulder pain, neck pain, and upper back pain...due to a recent auto accident...I had whiplash, a pinched nerve in my neck and nerve damage in my shoulder and it seems to work amazingly to ease pain that is sometimes so unbearable it hurts to move my head. I haven't experienced any bad side effects except for the occasional drowsiness and loopy feeling, but the benefits definitely outweigh that and I'd recommend this medicine to anyone in severe pain. As everyone else has said, use with caution and take only as needed per doctors orders. Don't know how I would have or would be functioning now without this drug and Zanaflex.”

“Very good for pain, but left me very foggy & nauseous, not able to do much else but sit on the couch and watch football. The Norco hangover the next day was no fun either. Will use only when necessary.”

“I was given Lortab for tooth pain; I also have fibromyalgia, and was hoping it would help both. It did relieve some of the tooth pain, did nothing for the fibro pain. But I was so anxious, jittery, fearful, heart racing that I never took it again.”

“Makes me sleepy but helps with my cough due to not breathing right after some back rib injury from a fall. Kills the pain for over 8 hours so I can sleep lying down too. Makes me kinda foggy so I have to focus to get stuff done. ”

“I took this for degenerative disc disease when Percocet stopped working. It helped me as much as Percocet. It was slightly more sedating than Percocet, but at the same time, it helped me rest better. I am not currently on pain pills, but if I had to have any, and had an option, it would probably be Lortab 10.”

“This drug is EXCEEDINGLY helpful at managing my moderate Cardiac pain from Hypertrophic Obstructive Cardiomyopathy as I await my Open Heart Surgery! Vicodin which is the same chemical but is 5/500 instead of 7.5/500 is to weak, and I have found that Percocet, is to Strong, it makes me not function normally. Lortabs takes most of the pain away, yet leaves my brain basically intact. It is a happy medium pain reliever for my moderate pain!”

“I have had severe migraines for sometime and was on 4 different pain medications, this medication completely omits migraines from the day. Only side effects for me were being wired, and kinda snappy and sometimes short tempered. I've been taking it for a year, only when I'm going to have a migraine I take one! ”
