Lortab Narcotic Information

Lortab® (hydrocodone/APAP) is a prescription medication approved to treat moderate to moderately severe pain in adults and children as young as two years old. Although most people tolerate this medicine well, Lortab is not suitable for everyone. Before using this narcotic, information on Lortab should be fully reviewed with your healthcare provider.
 
For instance, Lortab is classified as a controlled substance, which means that special regulations and laws control its sale and use. Because it is a type of narcotic, Lortab is a highly desired drug of abuse. Lortab is readily available and inexpensive, especially in generic form. However, abusing Lortab can lead to dangerous and even life-threatening complications.
 
Also, Lortab can cause several side effects, such as constipation, nausea, and vomiting. To help avoid any potential complications, make sure to talk to your healthcare provider about any other medical conditions you may have or any other medications you are taking (including non-prescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements).
