Reviews for Lortab

For Back Pain "This Lortab doesn't have any affects at all, it doesn't do anything"

Jeff1 · Taken for 10 years or more June 27, 2018

For Back Pain "I'm a chronic pain patient due to scoliosis and a subsequent spinal fusion performed in 1980. When they discovered my rib hump, my curve had already reached a staggering 46 degrees. The fusion and subsequent Harrington rod insertion stopped the curve from getting any worse but left me in a great deal of pain and musculosketal problems. I was 20 then and now I am 57. I have been taking narcotic opioid pain medication off and on ever since. Lortab 10's have been very helpful"

For Back Pain "I've been taking hydrocodone 10/325 with M367 imprint for chronic back pain for 5 years with good pain relief. Pharmacy switched vendors now pills have imprint G 037. I've been taking them as directed for 3 days with no pain relief."

For Back Pain "I was on lortab 10/500 for 14 years from 2000 until 2014 after having 2 lower back surgeries for chronic pain it worked best for me with the least side effects in 2014 it's like no longer available I'm guessing in fl. Or the U.S now for 4 months I'm on hydrocodone 10/325 it is not effective at all for me I don't get any relief from it so I'm not as functional I'm in the bed more because of the pain and no relief from the 10/325. what happen to the Lortab 10/500 ?"

For Pain "Had back surgeries and neck, after I fractured both. Have titanium plates in my neck and cadaver bones in my lower back. Tried eveything. Naproxen, percocet, oxycontin, vicodin. Lortab is the only one that I can take that let's me get on with my life. Tho, I do have to watch when I take it, mostly before I do anything strenuous, and 3 hours before bed. For day to day stuff it works the absolute best."

For Back Pain "Okay well at FIRST this medication was pretty cool, it took away ALL my pain and not only that but gave me extra energy as well. Before I had my son I would not let doctors prescribe me narcotic pain killers for anything, as I had been addicted to Vicodin in the past. SO, my son was born and I then developed bursitis from years of running in the army, working out, and a combo of a hip surgery and other factors. At first I went to chiropractor 3x a week, massage therapy, physical therapy and finally told the doctor I HAD to have some pain medication, it was so bad it changed my life. Started taking these 2 years ago & now they don't help me but if i DON'T take them I get sick! :( wish I'd never started on them now."

For Pain "Lortab is a very strong pain reliever. It takes between 1-2 hours to fully kick in. The problem I had with it was: 1) Felt like I was in a mental "fog" effect for days. 2) Constipation - drink a lot of water I have had 20 pills over a period of 3 years for periodic intense leg, ankle or back pain do to work. I have switch to Tramadol 50mg with less side effects."

For Back Pain "Helps very much"

determinedladee · Taken for 5 to 10 years December 18, 2013

For Back Pain "I have had 3 surgeries regarding my spine. 2 neck operations, 1 low back discetomy. I have been diagnosed with degenerative disc disease. I have elected several times to go without the medication to see how my body responds on other over the counter medications. Nothing worked. I also tried alternative medication prescribed from my pain management doctor to see if that would work, it did not. I have been taking Lortab 7.5 for 6yrs now responsibly and without it I have very poorly controlled pain."

tammybl November 6, 2013

For Pain "Works extremely well for my pain. Chronic back pain and dislocated hip joint. Works better if taken as soon as pain begins. Highly addictive and well known street drug. Never tell anyone, teenagers, thst you have them. Take only ax needed as needed because of tolerance build up."

Robert flores · Taken for less than 1 month October 25, 2013

For Back Pain "I got injured at work from my upper back part, affortunally it was a mucle spam, the pain make me felt on the floor but after dr. Seen me he prescribed me hydrocodone/acetaminophen and it really works, the pain was there but not strong like the first day every time I miss a dosis pain came back but it disappear after every dose. They work very good."

For Rheumatoid Arthritis "The only thing finally found without too much acetaminophen that doesn't upset stomach and helps the pain."

For Pain "In my experience this medication is pretty good but the only problem I have is, it makes me itch. My pharmacist says its not an allergy because I don't have a rash. I have found, if I take it soon enough after pain starts, it does pretty good at controlling it."

zenhug August 22, 2013

For Back Pain "Fractured and wedged connecting vertebrae put on the 5's for many years. Now with another injury to the back moved to the 7s the first time taking the 5S made me drowsy for a couple of weeks but nothing since does its job."

For Back Pain "I have sciatica and have been in bed for 1 week. I've been taking Lortab 7.5/500 but it doesn't seem to work very well for me. "

For Back Pain "Good."

2 herniated disk guy · Taken for 1 to 6 months August 1, 2013

For Back Pain "When I got ran over by the 18 wheeler, tried everything. Chiropractor, Physical therapy, tramadol, etc. nothing stopped the pain. Lortab 7.5 is only thing that works. Take 1/2 in morning, 1/2 at lunch, and 1/2 in evening. Just watch for dizziness, nausea, and I guess that's a side effect. I feel loopy and detached a little, but it's better than hurting all the time. Most definitely don't mix with booze, made me sick as a dog. Also watch your tolerance. One day tried to take a whole one and had to lay down. Just be mindful it hits everyone different. Hope this helps."

For Back Pain "Lortab allows me to work a physical job. Without it, that would be impossible. It does not remove all the pain, but it helps with the severity of the pain. I am careful that I do not overuse it."

FU69 · Taken for 1 to 6 months May 30, 2013

For Pain "Problem developed with inability to have proper bowel movement. Difficult to overcome until I was told to take Dulcolax with each dosage of Lortab 5/500 or 5/325. Cleared problem up. Gradually "got off" Lortab by slowly decreasing dosage over period of about a week as recommended by physician."

Todd · Taken for 1 to 2 years May 6, 2013

For Pain "I started taking Lortab after I fell 22 feet in a hunting accident inMmarch of 2012. 4 months ago I learned that I had Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, severe nerve damage, beginning stages of osteoporosis and arthritis, and bone fragments left in my ankle. Lortab was a God sent. It truly is the only thing that gets me through the day although there is still pain. It's nothing compared to what it would be like without it."
