Lortab Pills

A healthcare provider may prescribe Lortab® (hydrocodone/APAP) to treat moderate to moderately severe pain in adults and children as young as two years old.
 
This pain medication comes in two forms: an elixir and tablets (pills). Lortab is typically taken every four to six hours as needed for pain. It is available in the following strengths:
 
  • Lortab 2.5/500 -- 2.5 mg of hydrocodone bitartrate and 500 mg of acetaminophen
  • Lortab 5/500 -- 5 mg of hydrocodone bitartrate and 500 mg of acetaminophen
  • Lortab 7.5/500 -- 7.5 mg of hydrocodone bitartrate and 500 mg of acetaminophen
  • Lortab 10/500 -- 10 mg of hydrocodone bitartrate and 500 mg of acetaminophen.
     
Lortab contains two different medications, hydrocodone and acetaminophen. Hydrocodone is a semi-synthetic narcotic, opioid pain reliever. It acts similarly to codeine and is effective at decreasing pain and relieving coughing. The acetaminophen component in Lortab is a pain reliever and fever reducer.
