Were you looking for information about Lortab? Loritab is a common misspelling of Lortab.
Lortab® is a medication that is used to treat moderate to moderately severe pain. It contains two different pain medications: acetaminophen and hydrocodone. Lortab products (as well as other hydrocodone/APAP products) are commonly abused drugs. They are readily available and inexpensive, especially in generic form.
Lortab is either taken "as needed" or on a scheduled basis. "As needed" means you will only take a dose if you are experiencing pain (if you are not in pain, you will skip the dose), while "scheduled use" means you should take it on schedule, even if you are not in pain. Most healthcare providers prescribe this drug on an "as needed" basis, rather than a scheduled basis. Be careful not to exceed the maximum recommended daily dose, as this could lead to overdose symptoms or poisoning from the acetaminophen component, which can cause liver failure.
