Lortab Addiction

Lortab is very habit forming under chronic use, this is why there are so many “accidentally addicted.” According to the 2006, National Survey on Drug Use and Health, of the 6.4 million Americans misusing prescription drugs, more than 73% misused prescription pain relievers like Lortab.


Lortab is a semi-synthetic narcotic pain reliever that is formulated with acetaminophen and hydrocodone. The acetaminophen has less potent pain relief but it increases the effects of hydrocodone. Hydrocodone is the narcotic component of the drug, attaching to opioid receptors in the brain and spinal cord to block pain. Acetaminophen is a non-narcotic pain reliever that decreases the formation of prostaglandins and increases pain-relieving power Lortab has been classified by the U.S. government as a Schedule III narcotic under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). Lortab is a common form of treatment used to manage acute or chronic, surgical or physical pain (including migraines). As well as to treat unbearable emotional pain, such as depression. What attracks recreational users is the extreme relaxation, euphoria and drowsiness that Lortab produces.
