What Is Lortab?

Lortab is an opiate used to relieve moderate to severe pain. It belongs to the group of drugs that are called narcotic pain relievers. It is also marketed as Vicodin, Norco, Lorcet, Maxidone and Zydone. Lortab works by lowering a chemical in the brain that stimulates pain nerves. Like many other opiate drugs, it has the potential to be misused, abused and cause heavy dependence. When used for a long period of time, Lortab may require higher doses to produce the same effect. That’s how dependence may develop, putting Lortab users at increased risk for addiction. Sudden discontinuation of the drug, especially after prolonged exposure, will invariably lead to severe withdrawal symptoms.

The Dangers and Symptoms of Lortab Abuse

While Lortab can certainly be a useful tool in pain relief, it can be habit-forming if not used as prescribed by a doctor. A tell-tale sign of dependence is a strong and highly-intense craving for the drug. Some individuals may crush, snort or chew the drug, which may eventually lead to excruciating side effects. Individuals experiencing some of the symptoms below, may require immediate medical assistance. The most common side effects among users include:
  • Dizziness
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Mood changes
  • Nausea
  • Drowsiness
  • Severe allergic reactions
  • Anxiety
  • Hearing loss
  • Fatigue

Some of these symptoms may be exacerbated if Lortab is being taken in combination with alcohol or some other chemicals. Furthermore, it can depress the central nervous system.In addition, Lortab poses extreme danger to individuals suffering from liver disease. Withdrawal symptoms may result in muscle and bone pain, insomnia, diarrhea, involuntary leg movements and other disturbing effects.
